For almost a decade, the amorphous ensemble around German artist and producer Philip Albus celebrates the decomposition of the thinking mind. Incorporating a range of musical genres such as IDM, noise-fueled krautrock, kosmische or drone music, the group's body of work appears eclectic just at the very first sight. Besides a simple love for music and sound itself, this adoption and thus the decontextualisation of various musical (and non-musical) sources is deeply rooted in the tradition of post-industrial culture. Understanding music as a means to not only create alternative perceptional spaces, but also as vehicle to alter perception and thereby reality itself, MERCYDESIGN aims to uncover the hidden trails of a 'higher' world with equal validity to it's source - a quest that is romantic in a philosophical sense and occult in the best.
