Jerusalem and the Second Temple fell in September 70: Elul 3830 in the Hebrew calendar. 1950 years ago ROMA’s violence decided to destroy Jerusalem. That was not AMOR. 1950 years after, this album is dedicated to the ancient siege and massacre of Elul 3830. That’s for sure. But we know that a transnational & transhistorical community of victims is calling us. Lots of eerie imperia – the empires – act impiously on the dashboard of history.
An antique Latin policy was used to say that ROMA is AMOR. It means that Rome is Love. Well, one cannot honestly say that plenty of ART is a plague RAT. LOVE and ART are vibrant.
Our music is but the memory of these events. And not only of a singular event.
