About the new album
PERCIPIO ERGO SUM is again a concept album and carries on the story of the previous album SPLINTER IN THE EYE. The two protagonists have survived the fall of civilisation and the reconstruction and suffer - each for himself, without meeting each other personally - from the past as well as from the present. The "brave new world" displeases both of them, but in different ways. At the centre is the so-called TV girl with her perception of civilisation, of people, of the world per se, because all this is completely new to the early 20-year-old woman, who has spent 16 years as an experimental subject in a sealed-off bunker (without knowledge of the existence of the outside world/other people).
In essence, she is fundamentally different from the other people who are either opinionless, uninterested citizens or are decisively influenced by the Cartesian world view ("cogito, ergo sum" = "I think, therefore I am").
Her credo is PERCIPIO ERGO SUM (= I perceive, therefore I am), because she sees herself as part of a whole and defines herself through interaction.
The attitude of both protagonists can certainly be understood as a critical view on humanity in the age of the Anthropocene.
