Deemona is the first project of my ongoing series on alternative realities. It portrays a world where humans are the last remaining complex living beings at a later and more radical phase of the Anthropocene. All life has been extinct, returning to its original mineral stage. And humans are finally alone, undisturbed, having transcended their former nature towards a paradise of complete optimisation
Monosodium Glutamate, a series of staged large format photographs inspired by Baroque Spanish religious painting, represents the unfulfillment of the neoliberal promise – the collapse of the idea of a capitalist paradise and the decline of its centuries-old, uncontested patriarchal ruling class. Here, the body language that conveyed a mystical experience in classical paintings mutates into the silent screams or desperate mating calls of anonymous, isolated men trapped in a mundane hell, deprived of any spirituality.
Extract of Broken Frontier’s review.
It’s a rare thing indeed to read a debut comic as assured and confident in its storytelling, and as conversant with the language of the form, as writer Chino Moya and artist Tal Brosh’s Flat Filters. This surreal and metaphorical journey of self-discovery (or not!) begins with a young man waking up to find the world outside of his flat has gone and been replaced by a nondescript yellow plain and a featureless blue sky.
The soundtrack is pressed on «Wasteland Grey» marble vinyl, housed in a deluxe spined sleeve with double sided printed insert.
This is a limited edition release, only 500 copies pressed!
An otherworldly journey through a Europe in decline, as a collection of ill-fated characters confront their doomed futures and fortunes.
Says Golczewski: “Working on the score for Undergods was an awesome experience. Chino had a great and pretty clear vision of how things should sound and look. The whole creative process took a few months, with a ton of music being written, lot of ideas and variations. For the soundtrack I used a few of older machines that fit the theme and sound that Chino wanted for the film, so that 70’s feel of electronica with some ambience and atmosphere– it’s something unique just as the film is special and unique like there’s nothing else similar out there.”
