An Invitation to Oblivion!
With The Motels of Oblivion we join Circle109 on a quest to find love in the heartless darkness of a 21st century city; any city. Broken souls amongst the shattered glass; in the shadow of the ugly towers we have built in celebration of our own stupidity.
A poetic rumination on love and loss and psychic survival in troubled times; fake news and fake politics: We are at war for the very soul of man. Whose side are you on?
All words and music are by Circle109 but the voices are ghosts; mystical actors summoned from the ether as if by some latter-day Madame Blavatsky. Can this digital ectoplasm really tell the tale of the heart in turmoil? What is fake and what is real anyway? Are we not all just characters in somebody else's bad dream?
Think not of this work as one of those dreaded Concept Albums of yore but as a poetry anthology with ambient soundtrack; or a movie of the mind - "the flickering celluloid invisible" as Circle109 would have it.
Be not afraid! Circle109 will not be touring with an ice show, dressed in capes and cod-pieces. Not this year, anyway!
