(5% DISCOUNT THRU 1-22-21) Following on from Morphogenic (DiN41) & Dystopia (DiN56) this new album builds on their previous work creating imaginary Synthwave soundtracks. Bakis Sirros, the mastermind behind Parallel Worlds, provides the skittering rhythmic backdrop which he and Bessell overlay ominous bass lines, twisting melodies and sound design that recall a shadow of the 1980's John Carpenter film scores. Bessell also adds his unique guitar style that he uses in his other well known side project with the synth quartet Node. Both musicians make extensive use of modular synth systems but in very different ways that perfectly blend together in these eight atmospheric tracks. The duo of Bessell and Sirros have a unique sound unlike anything else in the world of electronic music. "Phosphenes" presents another chance to enter their darkly twisted sonic world.
