Name of band: Mebitek
Year formed: 2003
Location: Mogoro, Sardinia
From the acid and dusty factories of the electronic underground, through the devastated and pure immaculate nature of Sardinia, an explosion of anger and melancholy darkness transforms electronics into a cinematic orchestra.
What technology can transform into audio & visual experiences we can just follow the future, transforming sorrow into confidence, pain into art to see the own horror diminuendo becomes melancholic crescendo.
Dark Ambient Cinematic Electronic Music from Sardinia
