This here is a real rarity and a special treat for you guys. Socrates is a project of Electric Fish and Amper-O-Mat.
Socrates is well-known as a creator of the question “What is this?” The answer on this eternal question is hidden in the content of the dialogue. It reveals the levels of existence.
In the project Socrates these two artists make the dialogue by the use of the sound tools, which differ between each other in a basic way. There is a sound of the analogue synth on the one hand, and a fundamental sound of the electric acoustic instrument on the other. The artists enter the dialogue from the different points of view, where the starting point of the first one is mysterious analogue sounds, while the other is a representative of a post-industrial music genre.
The dialogue is being made in two parts.
The artists live and work in Celje, which lies in their motherland - Slovenia.
