about

Dasein is my 4th release with the Rafart project.

This album is a mix of electronic music and prog-rock, a style I refer to as Electronic Prog-Rock. It combines the Chapman Stick in a band format with electronic production techniques.

Dasein refers to Heidegger's concept of human beings as agents of care that are capable of constructing their authenticity. This album is an expression of my ongoing process of musical authenticity. It's the first one where I do songs, and not only instrumentals, a so far missing part of my musical work.

about

Rafart Quincy, Massachusetts

Rafart is my Electronic Prog-Rock solo project, where I combine Prog-Rock and EDM sounds to create a unique musical style. In this project, the Chapman Stick, my voice, and different gadgets are my tools of expression. It has taken different formats such as trio, duo, and solo performance, and it incorporates different session musicians that always bring unique sounds and styles. ... more

Track Name: Machine Elves
Verse 1
If you see through the veil of your own eye lids
While the walls dissolve in colors and geometric forms

Bridge
There they are, greeting you
Going around, mocking you
Dancers of the other side
They’ve been waiting all eternity
To show you unreality

Chorus
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Ahhhhh

Verse 2
Is this a joke or have I died?
I am not a body nor a mind.

Bridge 2
I naively expected god
Not a circus in heaven
Dancers of the other side
They’ve been waiting all eternity
To show you unreality

Chorus
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Ahhhhh

Instrumental
Solo Stick
Solo guitar

Chorus
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Ahhhhh
