Fausto Emiliano Gianni, aka Arsenic, aka Bon, from Italy, is credited with pushing forward the...
...genres of trance music using modular synthesis and analog equipment together with new digital systems. The Bon project was founded in Rome in 1996 to develop psychedelic trance music and has been released on top labels including Digital Psionics, Pixan and Dharma Kshetra Arsenic is his darker project with successful tracks already released on compilations from Amaris, Stone Age, Innersound, Night Oracle, Trip and Manic Dragon.
Manic Dragon is delighted to present the debut album of Arsenic, inspired by the movies of Akira Kurasawa and Hayao Miyazaki. A formidable demon tells the story, through music, of a great city of the future, Caelestia, brought into a world of darkness by scientists from Arithmetix Laboratories experimenting on the structure of atomic matter - experiments which went horribly wrong.
One little girl was watching the sky as it flickered red and white - it was the end of Caelestia, but not the end of the girl - sound and energy enveloped her and penetrated her soul - she became the demon who returns to us now to tell her story.
