Cinematic, profound and absorbing, Pyrit is the solo project of Swiss German artist Thomas Kuratli. This first album is the musical expression of an original literary project: the story of a journey into the body – dissolving into the universe and transforming into an extraterrestrial machine. Recorded in a parking lot, it is full of ideas and vivid emotions while definitely pushing the limits of the one-man band. After moving from Zurich to Paris, Kuratli started to work on UFO. Originally drawn from his love of electronic, psychedelic and krautrock, Kuralti creates soundscapes of a deserted concrete-world, full of destruction and loneliness. Sometimes there is a glimpse of hope, sometimes there is not. The music is simultaneously loud and fragile, complex and simple, and always evolving. Navigating between electronic psych, gaunt blues and the soundtrack of a weightless film, he exposes himself by donning the costume of a disenchanted crooner in search of the ultimate slow.
