the collaboration album ‘trauma’ -, based on intuitive, live electro-acoustic composition, processing of instruments, voice and samples -, is a deep and personal journey into the shadow world of the traumatic experience and child abuse; it describes psychosis and how its mental and emotional state can resonate within the music, which can be very cathartic and healing.

ldq ysimaro played for anamorph experimental music with a lo-fi yamaha synth and manipulated samples with a micro granny which were processed and enriched by viviano wich’s modular synthesizer, by making use of sound design and analog synthesis techniques.

field recordings took place in caves around the coast of cilento national park in italy; voice was recorded and processed in vienna.

the final composition emerged from excerpts of the recorded material.
