ADDITIONAL NOTES:
The 5th tape from our series is inspired by the ancient Italian folklore known as Tarantella/Taranta/Pizzica in which, victim of the bite of a mythical spider and affected by an hysterical disease, the sufferer is cured by the use of a rhythmic and obsessive music. We find a metaphor of this non-biological poison on our sexist and materialistic society, therefore the need of such a therapy, which you can call perdition, state of trance, escape from reality.
