Roberto Carlos Lange’s experimental electronic project Helado Negro is putting out a series of EPs under the banner Island Universe Story, and recently they posted the leadoff track from the first edition of the series, which is out next week. The inspiration comes from a Huxley passage:
“We live together, we act on, and react to, one another; but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves. The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena; they are crucified alone. Embraced, the lovers desperately try to fuse their insulated ecstasies into a single self-transcendence; in vain. By its very nature every embodied spirit is doomed to suffer and enjoy in solitude. Sensations, feelings, insights, fancies—all these are private and, except through symbols and at second hand, incommunicable. We can pool information about experiences, but never the experiences themselves. From family to nation, every human group is a society of island universes.”
There you have it. Download after the jump.
