ECUT Fantastic synthesis of classical & specialized modern music components - an Ep which is building up a huge arc of suspense and that happens mostly without any bloated beats. That's characteristic, how Gluid is transforming all his choosed musical elements in a multiple differentiated & intelligent way. I always love the moment, when the last & till then lost element is taking its time onstage. Great dramaturgy - a strong, creative work!! Favorite track: Faulty Narcosis.

Initially this music was commissioned by theatre company Noortje Licht as a soundtrack for 'De Gedaanteverwisseling' (The Metamorphosis), based on the book by Franz Kafka.

The show/installation (2010) was a seamless combination of acting, extremely inventive video projections by Douwe Dijkstra and music by Bram van den Oever (Gluid). Quite exceptional for such a small theatre company. See for a promo video.

After some minor alterations, this soundtrack now became a breathtaking stand-alone Gluid release. And just like the world famous psychological thriller by Kafka, it haunts you with hallucinatory beauty.
