Antiope’s existential dreamscapes go far deeper than simple noise
Escapism is a key tenet of noise music. Through raging, transcendent catharsis, to electrifying live intensity – noise, in all of its myriad forms, is a genre built around moving elsewhere within ourselves.
Nocebo – the second in Paris based noise-drone mystics 9T Antiope’s series Isthmus:Nocebo:Placebo – is an exploration of the inner monologues of a race of beings who, in a (perfectly relatable) state of abject apathy toward conventional space and time, have induced themselves into permanent comas.
Featuring a heady brew of droning pads, industrial noise rumblings and spoken word passages blurring the boundaries between art and reality through their inclusion of the real-life experiences of family members, Nocebo is as engrossing through it’s backstory as it is through it’s artfully constructed textures.

Nocebo will be released February 15th through Purple Tape Pedigree,
