Launched in 2013, Conjecture is an audio-visual project by Athens-based visual artist and composer Vasilis Angelopoulos. Through heavy post-industrial sound, based on raw field recordings and hardware/software electronics, he’s recreating the abstract concepts of religious folklore in their most primal form.
“V” releases May the 10th on a limited run of black-white marbled vinyl & digital formats.
You can pre-order the LP from AMEK Collective Bancamp page.
For years, Conjecture has been tightly connected to the Sofia-based label and booking crew Amek Collective. The path his taken on his 2017 tape "My Body, Your Temple", co-released by Amek and Raumklang Music, has now evolved in “V” – his brand new full-length album and a first appearance on vinyl. The mesmerizing cover photography is done by Vaia Pilafa.
“V” is an anti-body statement. The individual's disengagement from the human body and from all kinds of physical hypostases is portrayed through unconventional industrial sound forms. Sometimes being oneiric, sometimes frozen and aggressive, while in the same somewhat erotic, Conjecture’s musical expressions are well-constructed and climax into the literary metaphor of the human body deconstruction. “V” is dedicated to the process of seeking out the individual existence, which is able to occur beyond the barriers of life, death or creation.
Each track on the album reflects a fragment of a bigger entity, which by its end becomes whole. “V” unveils the materiality of flesh and the frailty of thoughts, personality and physical restrictions. Conjecture seeks a new concept for the human being and its very existence beyond logic. This album is an obsessive manifest against the flesh-cage, a hymn for the consciousness, found standing silent in the background and reflects the true nature and cause of personal existence.
