What if all things disappeared abruptly? What if the universe worked as an existential vacuum, swallowing mankind as a whole leaving not a single trace of us behind? Death, i.e. disappearing, is the ultimate leveler, the ultimate equalizer, where all odds drop to zero because the fight is finally over. “Aquarius” is this panegyric treaty about emptiness, finiteness, solitudinem, non-idolatry, emphasizing metaphysics as an answer to accept definitive cessation – at least that is what the record transmits to my brain and what my encephalic bioproduct then assumes as a grand icon of bleakness. A morass of dark ambient music, with drone aesthetics and the talent to unasthetize the apathetic – well done Alex Barnett, Seth Sher and Jeremiah Fisher. PS
