      UKONX RECORDINGS presents
      FOTOAPPARAT - Transhumanismus EP
      RELEASE DATE : September 1st, 2019

      FOTOAPPARAT was born somewhere in Europe, around the 21st century. The project is thought as a multimedia experiment with roots both from the past and the future : it is the fruit of the love of strange music, social science fiction and last but not least, underground electronic subcultures.
      After releasing its first two EP on Dostonos Records (FUNDAMENTALE WECHSELWIRKUNG & DOPPELMORD) and a bunch of remixes, the TRANSHUMANISMUS EP started to emerge and take shape in FOTOAPPARAT's universe : it is an exploration of transhumanism's moral ambiguity, and its consequences in various domains such as medicine, transportation, life comfort, security... Simply put, it is a journey across mankind's prospective future, using both music and video. This third release, out on Ukonx Recordings, consists of six tracks : TRANSHUMANISMUS, PHASE TWO, DIE ORGANISATION, SUPERIOR MIND, THEOSIS+ and ARTIFICIAL HELL.
      The first three tracks explore our daily life with machines, and the ambivalent results of cooperation between mankind and machines. Humanity in its limitless ambition ultimately pushes its researches further and further, until it reaches a turning point : the end of its supremacy.
      The last three tracks are a warning, based on cinema, literature, science, mythology and philosophy : what if artificial intelligence emancipates itself and become as powerful as a god ? Can we expect a machine to show compassion and mercy ? And last but not least, would it punish us for our destructive behavior by recreating our consciousnesses into a personal artificial hell ?
      The six tracks intertwine to tell a story about science and religion, an anticipatory tale about humankind's dark future.

      The EP will be available as digital format on the UKONX Bandcamp but also on the major distribution channels, such as iTunes, JunoDownload, Spotify, Amazon and Google Play.
