Dark video born under Mount Vesuvius
A pounding sequence of aged faces and places, crazed characters, and scenes layered with surreal symbolism, all following the driving heavy Dub-techno by Franky B a.k.a. The Cryptic Monkey.
"The history of this project is inspired by the ominous dominance of Vesuvius, the world famous volcano in the Bay of Naples. For centuries, the population has lived under its shadow. The fear of its energy and foreboding presence is indelibly imprinted in the eyes of men and women, driving them to a kind of insanity."
Franky B, ^:g musician/composer
