**2022 stock. 100 copies limited edition** On this album Daniel Vujanic tried to create a musical system with moods, dynamics and melodic ramifications through non-musical approaches, components and source material. Or simply put: to alter and to transform identifiable synthesizer, piano, guitar, cello or field recording sounds/motifs into something less musical, more obscured and clandestine. He was looking for a way to build coagulated atmospheres, dissolving states of mind, realms of the hypnotic even.

So in 2019 Vujanic started recording on a regular basis, solely working in an intuitive and direct way as some kind of cognitive exercise. The outcome was something that felt well-known, warm and properly attached to our memory and at the same time impenetrable, cold and dislocating, hence the title Prosopagnosia (face blindness - a cognitive disorder). Listening back to it now, he figures that on a subconscious level he had really wanted to fabricate a sound that didn't feel intellectually constructed but rather emotionally sculpted, using a rather idiosyncratic approach to songcraft and the interaction of space and time.

On a superficial level, this music which was born from improvising sessions and subsequent minimal editing, might resemble some specific genres i.e. electronic, jazz, ambient, noise and psychedelia with their idiomatic gestures, timbre and aesthetics, probably even some hints of meditative romanticism connected to days of yore. But if you listen closely, there are cracks and crevices in the textures, holes of meaning. A place where the past is falling into the future, where sound is roaming freely, disapearing quickly or sometimes connecting to other signifiers in multiple ways, elegantly contributing to a multidimensional narrative, which seems to be stubborn and open-hearted at once. Prosopagnosia is the first part of the Fabula trilogy.
