Sophia - Deconstruction of the World
Absolutely amazing. That is what I thought when I first put on Deconstruction of the World. A true soundtrack for the menace and destruction rampant in our times. The horror is apparent in the deadly ambience. This is a scary, scary record. Voices float on the edge of audibility waiting to attack the listener, while bassy medieval strings force their way into the subconscious. A decaying intensity, you feel yourself rot from the inside while the outside waits baitedly for the next hook, and minimal beat structures push the project along. What beat structure there is, is highly militaristic, foreshadowing the coming rise of fascism in the world. Hostility and negativity are on rising quickly while we wait as lambs for the slaughter, slowing watching our own destruction. Our societies are deconstructed and renewed in an unfamiliar form; it's no longer death and decay, but rather a reworking of the world order. Slowly, slowly democracy and freedom is eroded to be replaced with tyrannical leaders, and decreasing choice of opposition, and we tolerate this and continue shopping unknowingly. This is the world of Sophia, a world that we no longer matter in. The common human is too busy obsessing over mundane functions to acknowledge the horror of the world, the impending g economic crisis, and the downward shift of society. Deconstruction captures this and throws it back to us as a snapshot of our times. Vacant reality, entertains morbid redundant mediocrity. But mediocrity rules. The world is increasingly mediocre, we become increasingly middle of the road, average, yet reality plunges deeper and deeper, things are no longer how they seem. Soon Vikings will arise and swiftly chase us all to the ends of the Earth, come crashing down on us and push us into the burning ocean, alight with oil spills and floating bodies. Take heed take heed, Deconstruct reality.
