CHOIR, the one-human entity from Singapore and Brazil, is streaming the entirety of Songs For A Tarnished World exclusively at Invisible Oranges.
The artist comments: “Songs for a Tarnished World narrates large-scale landscapes of a decaying world. It draws inspiration from an array of musical genres as vast as the environments it develops. A world tarnished by its own destructive power rebirths cleansed in the shape of angular extreme Metal and soul-churning melancholy.”
The project draws heavily from experiences lived and observed from the point of view of minorities in a dangerous, cruel Latin American country – a continent that holds the majority of murders per 100k inhabitants, an immense homeless and incarcerated population. CHOIR has been crafted to convey monumental and sullen atmospheres. Narrating the horrors of the realm of reality, it steers away from the metal power fantasy. All the earnings of CHOIR’s sales beyond the production costs have been reverted as donations to institutions that support the homeless and women’s rights in South America.
