Electronic newcomer Phoet has shared the beautifully-shot visual for ‘Symmetry Breaking’, a nod to the ongoing global migrant crisis.
Taken from the Turin producer’s debut album, ‘Broken Symmetry’, the visual was inspired by the current political climate in Italy – a commentary on how the government has made migrants the scapegoat for the country’s problems.
Finding South African musician Kholeho Mosala embarking on a dangerous sea-ward journey, the finely-crafted visual is littered with symbolism that you can dissect above.
Embracing trip-hop, techno and African rhythms, Phoet’s 12-track concept album is a searing debut statement from the electronic experimentalist.
Of the album, he says: “A brief introduction is due; from the following lines the record could seem pretentious and complex. It isn’t. I think, on the contrary, it’s a simple and discernible work where I had fun drawing parallels between the world of physics and the world of music. I’ve always felt the need of finding concepts to compose. In this case, thinking about the concept of time allowed me to find solutions that I probably wouldn’t reach without it.”
