The machine noises act like electro shocks and trigger an overwhelming sensation of contradictory neural reactions intensifying the addiction to these alien mesmerizing tunes.

A new paradise. A new beginning, created by yet another ending.<br /> "Baroque Equinox" is a carnal and courageous thrust into a new age. A manifesto both showing the future and looking back. A new equinox. Night and day are alike, a metaphor that could not describe Die Form any better.<br /> Brilliantly crafted by these pioneers of electronic music, "Baroque Equinox" embraces powerful Electro and the Avantgarde, baroque's mesmerising opulence and a sterile beat, rhapsody and brute force with a panopticon of Electro, Industrial, Techno, classical music, eroticism, poetry and the Butoh theatre of the far east.
