Raul Arthuso One of the most interesting pieces of art I had contact lately. Favorite track: C1 - A losing battle is raging.

Patricio De La Fuente Duran Oddly enough, this is an album I like when relaxing at home in the afternoon. It has a creepy vibe, but also a strangely relaxing vibe too. Not for everyone, but still worth listening to. Favorite track: A1 - It's just a burning memory.

mindish Memory loss/deterioration is the most profound threat to what it means to be an individual. It's the erasure of all experience, the erasure of everything you build over a lifetime, your entire inner life. The beautiful decay of this project contains a profound nostalgia, a confused, out-of-time, hopeless struggle for self-preservation. I hope I and importantly the ones I love never experience memory loss. This project beautifully captures the dread of and inevitability that some will. Favorite track: B2 - An autumnal equinox.

THE CARETAKER IS RELEASING SIX NEW WORKS.

'Everywhere at the end of time' is a new and finite
series exploring dementia, its advance and its totality.

Featuring the sounds from the journey The Caretaker
as artist will make after being artistically diagnosed as having early
onset dementia.

Each stage will reveal new points of progression,
loss and disintegration. Progressively falling further
and further towards the abyss of complete memory
loss and nothingness.

Viewing dementia as a series of stages can be
a useful way to understand the illness, but it is
important to realise that this only provides a rough
guide to the progress of the condition.

Drawing on a recorded history of 20 years of
recollected memories this is one final journey
and study into recreating the progression of
dementia through sound.

Stage 1 - September 2016 (A+B)
Here we experience the first signs of memory loss.
This stage is most like a beautiful daydream.
The glory of old age and recollection.
The last of the great days.

Stage 2 - April 2017 (C+D)
The second stage is the self realisation and awareness that something is wrong with a refusal to accept that. More effort is made to remember so memories can be more long form with a little more deterioration in quality. The overall personal mood is generally lower than the first stage and at a point before confusion starts setting in.

Stage 3 - Released in September 2017

Stage 4 - Released in March 2018

Stage 5 - Released in September 2018

Stage 6 - Released in March 2019

--

All stages featuring cover art imagined and painted by Ivan Seal.
All stages will be mastered by Lupo at Calyx in Berlin.
All stages to be released on Vinyl and Compact Disc via
'History Always Favours The Winners'.
Distribution of Vinyl and CD's by Boomkat.
