Fantomas

    Join amiina for their latest adventure, Fantomas. Originally composed as a live score to a silent masterpiece from 1913, amiina's members decided right from the start that the music would also be able to stand on its own, independent of the visual narrative. Melancholic and ethereal, yet full of suspense, pounding rhythms and haunting melodies, amiina's fans won't be disappointed.

    Soundworld full of contrasts, from darkness and utter terror to heavenly melodies. The music thoughtfully composed, reorrucing themes and leid-motives build up a delicate structure where the listener can experience the piece as one entity - and then again different tracks or songs can be enjoyed independently. Violin, cello, drums, percussion, metallophone, table harp, ukulele and electronics are the source material for the sound world of amiina here, with their intelligent and imaginative usage of the different instruments and their varied and endless textures.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: Another classic outing from the infinitely talented Amiina. Plucked staccato strings, beautiful violin pulls and soothing ambient textures, alongside bright and hopeful melodic phrases. Brilliant.

    Fantomas

    Delirium Cordia

      Third release from Mike Patton's Fantomas, and this one showcases a quieter side of Fantomas. Possibly the soundtrack to a very dark fever induced nightmare, the momentary ambience is followed by chaos and confusion. Needless to say this won't be a daytime radio hit!!!

      The Fantomas Melvins Big Band

      Millennium Monsterwork

        A collaboration between The Melvins, and Mike Patton's Fantomas. Recorded live in San Francisco, December 2000.
