The product of insomnia, intoxication and a nervous breakdown.
Described by the label as “an ode to night; literal and metaphorical”, the album sees Amini employing experimental electronics and post-classical arrangements to explore physical and symbolic conceptions of the night time.
Influenced in part by the French philosopher Maurice Blanchot and his theories of the night, the album was a product of what Amini describes as a period of insomnia and intoxication, ultimately resulting in a nervous breakdown.
“This experience”, he explains, “culminating in me spending three days in ICU, gave me pause to think about Blanchot’s words.”
