Univers Carceral goes far beyond the usual realms of musical
industry... What we have here is a soundtrack supported by a complete
work of about 100 pictures (taken by the Divine Comedy Records boss
himself) showing the obscure and darkest places of his own town. This
100 pictures are the result of a four years shooting... The main title
draw a parallel between the industrial noise movement (showing how our
lives are conditioned, compartmentalized) and real pictures from the
city where you can find similarities with carceral environments : walls,
iron, agressivity, but also life and communication.
The pictured city is Marseille, located in the south of France.
The south suburbs are under construction, while the ones from the north
are dilapidated, hidden. Something like a cross between Beyrouth and
these towns where everything could happen at anytime. You can cross
here a horse and a burning car there, an horrible building then nature...
The terrific harsh-intelligent-industrial structures from Babylone Chaos,
H.I.V+ and Mourmansk 150 (with remixes by Asche, Iszoloscope
and DJ Mauri) depict a realistic illustration of modern life
in the carceral universe of mankind...
