    The Biopholio™ is a two-sided, 20-panel origami-inspired medium, bursting with vibrant artwork and liner notes; each one made entirely out of FSC-certified, robust paper, hand-folded and printed using plant-based inks. There is no Compact Disk (CD) or plastic in this product.

    Found inside each Biopholio™ is a unique code for the listener to digitally download the music in hers/his preferred format (high CD-quality, uncompressed WAV files, et cetera...)

    This innovative design caters to the environmentally-conscious listener, who is aware of the harmful effects of plastic in the environment, yet feels that a digital download is just not enough. With your purchase, you are supporting the future of this music and the artists who create it with the added bonus of receiving a tangible piece of original album artwork that you can proudly cherish for years to come.

about

English: The idea behind this movement is that the music is adapting the characteristics of an “ancient hunter” (title translated into english). I try to portray those primal, reptilian brain aspects of our identity as modern day human beings. Our ancestors had no choice but to hunt. And we ourselves are (no matter we try to convince ourselves otherwise) still easy prey for other predators. When one takes the human being out of the natural world, from the forests and jungles to metropolises and financial districts, there we get a fabricated, money driven prey/predator paradigm. And I don’t think it’s pretty, but it’s the reality of our society.

Español: En este movimiento, la música adopta las características de un cazador antiguo. Intento retratar esos aspectos primordiales "reptilianos" del cerebro de nuestra identidad como seres humanos modernos. Para nuestros antepasados la caza no fue una opción sino una necesidad y nosotros mismos (aunque no queramos entenderlo) somos una presa fácil para otros depredadores. Cuando uno saca al ser humano del mundo natural, los bosques y las selvas, a las actuales metrópolis y distritos financieros, nos encontramos en presencia de un paradigma entre "presa" / "depredador" fabricado por el dinero. No creo que sea bonito, pero es la realidad de nuestra sociedad.
