Epistrophobiais the second part of a journey begun in Fragmentropy. Where Fragmentropy was constructed as an epic poem, Epistrophobia tries to be a painting in words. The store is told in scenes and snapshots of distored perspectives, illocal colours and impressionist subjectivisms.

So actually the story is not told, it is asked, suggested, taken back, rephrased, crossed out, written across - a palimsest within a palimpsest, a fractal of causes and effects, like traces crisscrossed in the snow, with every listen you might find yourself be led somewhwere else.

Yet, it all ends where it starts. In the end there's just beginnings. Because there is no such that as a place to start or end. What if things aren't things? Masks behind masks and endless possiblity in a whirl of turning around, reflecting, feflections, epistrophe and epistrophisms: Look at yourself, so you see are not your self.

Ephistrophobiawill be followed by a third album containing chapters 7 to 9.
