Playground is a project that aims to be a sound landscape, an electro-acoustical essay about the protests during the Spanish crisis (2007-2016) and the social agents who took sides, mostly from the political left side, with the aim to make visible the inequalities, especially after the protests of the movement of the "outraged", also known as 15-M.
Sometimes the underground ideas become mainstream, and the political discourse, which is full of messages of hope, ends up becoming a kind of school playground.
1. Absent Space
We wrongly consider that things (including the human self) possess their own inherent nature. The subtle and profound emptiness realized on the bodhisattva path is an ultimate truth. This ultimate truth is a negative phenomenon --the mere absence of a certain type of self (i.e., a certain kind of existence) in phenomena. In Buddhism, ultimate truth is an absence, not a presence.
2. Dinamic Memory Sequences
A memory dinamic sequence consists of music, images and moments of our past and future lives. A new life can make our memories fade but this does not mean they should be forgotten.
Angya is a term used in Zen Buddhism in reference to the traditional pilgrimage a monk or nun makes from monastery to monastery, literally translated as "to go on foot." The term also applies to the modern practice in Japan of an unsui (novice monk) journeying to seek admittance into a monastery for the first time.
4. Waves and Wind
There are waves and there is wind, there are visible and invisible forces. Everyone has these same elements in his life, the visible and the invisible, karma and free will.
5. Dry Leaves
Music composed for this haiku written by a member of Africa Haiku Network Jamil Dan’bala Umar "Harmattan winds / clattering dry leaves / count their days".
The etymology of the Latin word Ianua (door) would refer to the god Ianus, usuallyde picted with two faces (the so-called Giano Bifronte), since the god can look at the future and the past, but also because, being the god of the door, he can look both inside and outside. Already the ancients put the name of the god in relation to the movement: Macrobius and Cicero made it derives from the verb ire (to go), because according to Macrobius the worldalways moves in a circle and returns from itself to itself. Modern scholars have confirmed this relationship by establishing a derivation from the term ianua, door, but it is with Georges Dumézil that the meaning is specified: the name Ianus derives from the Indo-European root *ei-, expanded in *y-aa- with the meaning of passage that, through a form *yaa-tu, has also produced the Irish ath (ford).
If possible, listen to it with headphones. Thanks.
The “Horrible Life” is the summit of an almost apocalyptic thought about the future and the way in which society works lately. From an omniscient narrator point of view and dealing with different issues, a state of hopelessness can be perceived, a new way of passively dealing with what cannot be changed; understanding, in the end, that the only possible path to take is the change of Circle.
A critique on new age and its consequences in “nama$te”, “the martyr just around the corner” is present. There is also an analysis on madness, lack of understanding and depersonalization in “we're not ok”, and “reflex”. In the midst of passivity and trying to assume what is already given: the horrible life and the last panopticom.
Reaching freedom from resentment, the coming of an impending end and a breath of fresh air for the future in amplifying the hate,revenge of the worst and a therapy for the future. Crunchy synthesizers, grave sounds, electronic expressions and processed voices lead to a rough but atmospheric and melodic sound with mid tempos.
After 3 albums, Turvia, a project based on ambient, techno, electronic, darkpop and some industrial traits, makes it to a much more melodic sound in which the lyrics gain more importance than in previous works.

Hyp·na·gog·ia The experience of the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep: the hypnagogic state of consciousness, during the onset of sleep. Some people often experience hallucinations during the onset of this sleep state.
This conceptual album is about an "illumination", but as seen from the other (the dark) side.
The secrets revealed, the strange atmosphere about what we can learn in not-usual ways, and some occult topics make this work unique, deep, rich and complex, but without loosing the "dance" vibe and catchy vocals.
Recorded at Mega Mental Records. Mixed and Mastering at The Warez House in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
