ORQUESTA METAFISICA presents its new album HIPNOTIZADOS
This new opus comes as a follow-up to 7 Movimientos, an instrumental album in which the band narrated a story about liberation of the spirit.
In HIPNOTIZADOS, it develops the topic of public opinion manipulation via the mass media, suggesting that people in all societies succumb to the same discourse which aims at generating fear, obedience and mistrust.
As HIPNOTIZADOS unwinds, instrumental compositions are interspersed with medleys of real political discourses pronounced by public personalities and with recordings of Tweets written in reaction to those discourses, exalting patriotism, security, religion, consumerism, new technologies or xenophobia.
The CD artwork created by Lola Garcia Garrido illustrates, in the artist's personal, sarcastic style, the subjects raised by the album.
ORQUESTA METAFISICA proposes original instrumental music, rich in influences, with an atypical choice of instruments: piano, bass, drums and saxophone married with classical strings, bass cello, stick and world music instruments, including the mythical bandoneon of Argentinian tango and the traditional Chinese yangqin, all that combined with electronics.
