It took a long time before to add the voices… Perhaps because the poems are very intimates. I wrote them trying to understand how a woman can feel in this sick patriarcal world. The music is based on Faust by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the Urfaust & Charles Gounod’s Faust opera. Also Faust Wakes Nosferatu by the band Faust was a great inspiration for this album, that’s why we called it Faust tape as a blink eye to the Faust Tapes. Also you may notice that the sound is quite rought but it’s an improvisation and as explain in our previous release Cosmic Hobos Cult that’s better to do not clean it..
