wc_helmets Exquisite sound sculpting combined with foreboding melodies make for a journey both harmonious and, often, discordant. One of my favourites releases this year and possibly the band's most subtle work to date. Favorite track: Dose I (Danse Macabre).

Ryefield Society Very unique poetry finding its way through tortured modular synths and violins. More than an essential release, a masterpiece. Inject Placebo in your running veins. Favorite track: Dose I (Danse Macabre).

KMRU Exquisite!, ..intensely felt within.
Definitely favourite from 9T Antiope. Favorite track: Dose II (Memento Mori).

oleksii I never write reviews, but this record is so overwhelmingly emotional, so can't help myself. The vocals are so intimate and vulnerable, synths are perfectly intense. Whole record is a visceral experience.

about

"'Placebo' is the third and final part of the trilogy 'Isthmus:Nocebo:Placebo' by Paris-based, Iranian composers, 9T Antiope (Nima Aghiani and Sara Bigdeli Shamloo). Commissioned by and produced inside Ina GRM in Paris, 'Placebo' has been initially created as a quadraphonic piece prepared for the Acousmonium, and it is meant to be taken in two doses: "Danse Macabre (Dose I) and Memento Mori (Dose II).

The piece explores the abyss of the mass crave for an ultimate cure for all suffering, the perils of the pursuit of happiness through mere optimism, deception, false promises, sugar pills, and eventually the allurement of death itself; 'Placebo' is a Memento Mori."
