Black Shape is a project by Piero Fragola and Mattia Tuliozi.
The EP opening track “Doom Room” was already released on the second double vinyl compilation by Tiptop Audio Records, published this past January.

This black and white animated videoclip elaborates the visual experiences of a distant past in a highly contemporary language.

ANGLE presents their newest A/V system ‘Shining Back’, a grid structure of LED lights pulsing in a geometric matrix to the duo’s live rhythms.

Ink and the materiality of painting are the true protagonists of this completely handmade videoclip, shooting the making of paintings in order to explore the creative process with a sophisticated visual language. The liquid Indian ink is lead by a path made of water on paper, to overcome the boundaries of contingency, while the content pays tribute to the previous research in animation and also to the origin of the audiovisual media.
The Z2040 is a great sounding analog ﬁlter that gives a lush, creamy character to any sound passing through its core.
Under the hood: The heart of the Z2040 is a discrete design 4-Pole Low Pass filter with a similar core to that of the SSM2040 Filter chip used in the Prophet 5 Rev 2 synthesizer and is brother the SSM2044 used in the famous early EMU samplers and PPG synthesizers of the 80’s, both considered by many as “the best sounding ﬁlter ever”.
With Mantis we took our years of experience with Eurorack to create a low cost case that makes the Eurorack modular synthesizer look, work, and feel like a professional instrument. Mantis is an instrument that is at home on stage, touring or in the center of the studio.
Mantis has two rows of 104HP for you to rack your modules. It comes fully powered and assembled, just drop in your modules and play.
