about

PRESS:

“Thiago Desant has made a next level piece of musical art. He’s truly stepped into another realm here. From moments of glitch beauty to ambient doom, ‘My Mind As Your Amusement Park’ feels like a free fall into a Hell of one’s own making.” – Complex Distractions (USA)

"A shout-out to divergence and diversity, to bifurcation and speciation, to adaptation and specialisation. This is the heartbeat of the universe, its raison d’être, its meaning and purpose." - 1208 North Fuller Ave Apt 1 (USA)

"Creative, psychedelic shaman music in a modern guise - a fascinating disc." - RRRsoundZ (GER)

“The album is a long slow fade up rather than a fade out. A deeply textured catalogue of sounds where the background continually births new foregrounds. Perplexing, dark, mangled, confusing and addictive stuff.” – Obla Dada (SCO)

"Dark corners and unexpected turns make this sprawling experimental soundscape from Brazil's Thiago Desant particularly fascinating. ('New and notable')" -Bandcamp (USA)

"Remains homogeneous - true to its essence - without becoming redundant, since MMAYAP takes its time to evolve and materialize, becoming less and less abstract Manages to place the listener in an endearing alternate universe." - Densidad 20.25 (MEX)

"If all of the subsequent LPs are as intense as this one then we’re in for an epic journey. My Mind As Your Amusement Park is a set of degraded, often rather haunted sound design." - Norman Records (UK)

"Like a collage of impressionistic sonic paintings that carries memories, dreams, and even nightmares with them" - The Big Takeover (USA)

"Sheesh is this some impressive work. It seems like at any moment during my listening, I could escape to such a world in my mind, the potency is incredible and magnificent." - Eternity Tree (USA)

"In some other form, this could be the sound of traffic and road work, but through these tools it is profoundly deep music." - Raised By Cassettes (USA)

"A nice cross-pollination of drones, shoegaze, modern classical and dark ambient. Free, headstrong and compelling. Just enjoy the beauty offered." - De Subjectivisten (NL)

"Creates incredibly dense atmospheric soundscapes with flickering details that are reminiscent of movie soundtracks. [A] musical treasure." - LOTD (GER)

"Phantoms vs. Fire's new album encompasses a handful of elements that make it so unique and special."" - Threshold Magazine (POR)



ENGLISH:

"My Mind As Your Amusement Park" is the first chapter of a story which is intended to be told in eight parts.
It's the story of a man and the damaging physical and psychological effects of his romantic ambitions.
During a near-death experience, he receives a prophecy from a witch that one day he will find the person he's supposed to live with for many lifetimes while also being granted eternal life. Obsessed by this information he spends centuries searching for this woman, until the witch shows up again to reveal that his promised loved one is now dead. "You can still find her spirit in a place where life and death blend," the witch tells him. The spirit of his unknown love inhabits a small ghost town on the Pacific southwest coast of Canada, the man moves there to find a place where reality and illusion are the same and has to adapt to a life where his mind doesn't seem to be just his own. With this album PvsF treads on new grounds, leaving behind the driven beats and shiny synthwave sounds of the predecessor album “WLDLFE” to explore the darker realms of ambient, kind of like painting musical pictures that carry memories, dreams, and nightmares with them. Like a theme park ride inside one's mind, a place where you can watch and rewatch scenes of new and old, odd, and unforgettable moments of someone else's life. A free fall into a hell of one’s own making. Something strange yet engaging. Music that doesn't hit you in the face, but floats around you instead, melodies that cut through the mental fog and make you embrace moments of melancholy and sonic madness.


GERMAN:

"My Mind As Your Amusement Parl" ist das erste Kapitel einer Geschichte, die Thiago Desant in acht Teilen erzählen wird.
Es ist die Geschichte eines Mannes und seiner kaputtmachenden physischen und psychischen Ambitionen, Liebe zu finden.
Während einer Nahtoderfahrung erhält er von einer Hexe die Prophezeiung, dass er eines Tages die Person finden wird, mit der er über viele Lebenszeiten hinfort zusammenleben soll, während ihm gleichzeitig das ewige Leben gewährt wird. Von diesen Informationen besessen, verbringt er Jahrhunderte damit, nach dieser Frau zu suchen, bis die Hexe wieder auftaucht und offenbart, dass sein versprochener geliebter Mensch jetzt tot ist. "Du kannst ihren Geist immer noch an einem Ort finden, an dem Leben und Tod verschmelzen", sagt die Hexe. Als der Mann erfährt, dass der Geist seiner unbekannten Liebe in einer kleinen Geisterstadt an der pazifischen Südwestküste Kanadas lebt, zieht er dorthin, um einen Ort zu finden, an dem Realität und Illusion gleich sind. Er muss sich an ein Leben anpassen, in welchem er bemerkt, dass sein eigener Verstand nicht nur ihm gehört.
Mit seinem neuen Album beschreitet Phantoms vs Fire neue Wege und lässt die treibenden Beats und glänzenden Synthwave-Sounds des Vorgängers „WLDLFE“ hinter sich, um die dunkleren Bereiche des Ambient zu erkunden. Wie in einem Vergnügungspark kann man Szenen aus neuen und alten, merkwürdigen und unvergesslichen Momenten des Lebens eines anderen betrachten und nachverfolgen. Ein freier Fall in eine Hölle des Selbst - seltsam und doch ansprechend. Musik, die nicht ins Gesicht schlägt, sondern um den Hörer herum schwebt. Melodien, die den mentalen Nebel durchschneiden und Momente der Melancholie und des klanglichen Wahnsinns umarmen lassen.
