"no matter what instruments he uses, at some point he reaches the edge of certainty beyond which conscious knowledge cannot pass." - carl g. jung
"after countless ventures with other projects and almost five years without releasing any albums, iszoloscope is back in full force. the return is without compromise and in all of its haunting brutality. these releases are the result of a long experiment with multiple realities, turned inwards, stretched thin and fractalized until glimpses of infinity seeped through the walls of consciousness into a formless show. a show that somehow is reminiscent of a strange balancing act between everlasting bliss and absolute terror crawling outside of time.
well, something like that... i think. that is until i realize, yet again, how absurd it all is when i try to paint it outside a metaphor. no matter how golden the answers are on the other side of my psyche, they never truly matter outside my mind. all the gold that i find in this enchanted forest of subjectivity always turns into ashes the instant it touches the light of the outside world - all while i try to convey my findings into coherent, rational thoughts. i'm still not sure how far down the rabbit hole i am.
i have knowingly gone beyond to explore anything that resembles an answer that is beyond the human experience. i only have greater questions that no language can formulate - questions that are slowly slipping back into oblivion. it seems we are all both geniuses and idiots at once. some less then others, maybe - the absurdity of this particular truth has always amused part of me while iszolating another. meanwhile, these releases are the result of countless passionate hours in the studio. of trial and error. of sharing technical information and creative dialogue with friends and artists..."

"the only 'realities' (plural) that we actually experience and can talk meaningfully about are perceived realities, experienced realities, existential realities - realities involving ourselves as editors - and they are all relative to the observer, fluctuating, evolving, capable of being magnified and enriched, moving from low resolution to hi-fi, and do not fit together like the pieces of a jig-saw into one single reality with a capital r. rather, they cast illumination upon one another by contrast [...]"
