Lamin Fofana - Black Metamorphosis
Shipping November 2019 | Exclusive Distro stock!
Steeped in afro-futurist aesthetic, this is the first part in the hyper-conceptual trilogy by global drone and noise artist Lamin Fofana. Not getting a digital release and only 100 copies world wide, we're getting a handful direct from Berlin. He stunned Folkestone at 2019's Profound Sound festival with an immersive assault of drone and sound collage, and we're so so excited to have the coming!
From Lamin himself:
The West is an insane asylum, a conscious and premeditated receptacle of black magic. – Fred Moten
Black Metamorphosis is the first installment in a trilogy inspired in part by Sylvia Wynter’s unpublished manuscript of the same title written in the 1970s. I spent most of the last 3 years working on this trilogy, and it has been eventful personally and in my approach to sound. It’s about the complicated process of understanding each other, but also desiring to accelerate the breaking of the world so we can move beyond the constraints of our time and dream up new sets of relationships. – Lamin Fofana
