Inspired by the scenic beauty of his studio's surroundings at Lake Pátzcuaro in Michoacan, MX, Dellarge delves deep into the depths of his artistic consciousness to craft a spiritual album that encapsulates the essence of the place. "INRI" stands for Industria Nacional del Ruido Infinito (National Industry of Infinite Noise) and serves as a vessel for Dellarge's innermost self-expression and reflections on the potential of humanity.
Drawing inspiration from various sources, Dellarge found creative fuel in books such as "El Arte de los Ruidos" by Luigi Russolo, "Manifiestos y Textos Futuristas" by F.T. Marinetti, and science fiction classics like "Congreso de Futurología" by Stanislaw Lem, "Neuromancer" by William Gibson, and "Dune" by Frank Herbert. Musically, he delved into the works of Coil, Michael Bundt, The Threshold Houseboys Choir, krautrock legends CAN and Popol Vuh, early Kraftwerk, Arthur Brown, Yello, Esquivel, The Residents, and Hector Lavoe for inspiration.
When asked about the creative process behind "INRI," Dellarge revealed a disciplined routine that involved immersing himself in the sounds, focusing on minute details that connected with the vivid world he envisioned. From the ethereal tracks like "Viento Androide" and "Viaje al Sol," offering glimpses of a hopeful future, to the darker compositions like "Corpus de Sangre" and "Toro de Falaris" that explore the wickedness and compassion within humanity, each piece in the album represents a unique sonic journey.
The album arrives with two collaborations. Juan Mendez, also known as Silent Servant, contributed an edit/remix of Viaje al Sol and collaborated with his wife, Simone Ling, on the limited edition cover designed by Silent Editions. Pedro Vian, the founder of Modern Obscure Musics also provided a stunning rework of another track Cascabel. With the support of influential figures such as Juan Mendez (Silent Servant) and Alessandro Adriani (MNQ Records), Dellarge's "INRI" promises to captivate audiences with its unique blend of ambient, industrial, and futuristic soundscapes. The album stands as a testament to Dellarge's artistic growth and his ability to transcend boundaries, offering listeners an immersive experience that connects them to his world.

At times obscure and convoluted and then suddenly ethereal and soothing, this album from Pedro Vian is a masterpiece of experimental electronic music. I am happy I stumbled upon him. White Noise from Electronic Toys
