This gold coloured single contains two tracks. 'Malophòros' was composed together with the shaman singer Alfio Antico, former collaborator of Fabrizio De Andrè, Tullio de Piscopo and Vinicio Capossela, on frame drum and voice. The piece sounds like an improbable mixture between the Nuova Compagnia Di Canto Popolare and the Master Musicians Of Bukkake! The text, written by Antico, is recited in Sicilian dialect and is inspired by the Sanctuary from the 5th century B.C. dedicated to the goddess Demeter whose ruins are located in the Archaeological Park of Selinunte (Sicily). The Sanctuary was a sacred place for the ancient Greek colonists in Sicily and their rituals and sacrifices were held there in order to ingratiate themselves with the divinity. On the B side the track 'Mondi Di Pietra' reminds of Franco Battiato's 'Pollution/Sulle Corde Di Aries' period. The text, in Italian, provides a mythological and esoteric vision of the Mediterranean world understood as a passage zone and cradle of ancient cultures. The mastering was curated by the English musician and producer Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3, Spectrum, Panda Bear, MGMT) at the New Atlantis Studio. The artwork is made by the Catalan artist Daniel Puiggros. Limited to 500 copies.
