For the second output of e s p e r p e n t o, Francesco Baudazzi evokes his enigmatic and esoteric side project Violet Poison after being part of the first Various Artists release as Red Lodge.
ESPER002. includes 5 original tracks plus a stomper Remix by the Liber Null founder Unhuman.
Each track recalls the pleasure and disorientation resulted in perceiving the ruthlessness of the sea and its stillness right after. Retro-futuristic and cinematic elements, wistful melodies and mutant beats emerge from the marine environment tied to Violet Poison homeland .
It is not without reason that the Ep title is inspired by “”The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1798), a tale about a sea voyage with no return because of the uncontrollable power of nature and the misfortunes caused by the killing of an Albatros.
The poem’s atmosphere too is connected with the eerie depictions and the deforming imagery of e s p e r p e n t o.
