Adapted from "Aleph" by Jorge Luis Borges.

"Aleph" is the story of a woman plotting revenge, a monster stuck in a labyrinth, a deserter and a translator. "Aleph" is the story of an obsession, a dead man, a Byzantine general and the memory of Beatriz.

All these stories are in these eight instrumentals tracks and in the city drawn by the artist pyramid.ink.


"Aleph" est l’histoire d’une femme qui prépare sa vengeance, d’un monstre coincé dans un labyrinthe, d’un déserteur et d’un traducteur. "Aleph" est l’histoire d’une obsession, d’un homme mort, d’un général byzantin et du souvenir de Beatriz.

Vous pouvez retrouver tout cela dans ces huit titres et dans la ville dessinée par pyramid.ink.

« La historia era increíble, en efecto, pero se impuso a todos, porque sustancialmente era cierta. »

« L’histoire était incroyable, en effet, mais elle s’imposa à tout le monde, car en substance elle était vraie. »

« The story was unbelievable, yes - and yet it convinced everyone, because in substance it was true. »

This collaboration with the artist Funilab starts from the first words of Chris Maker's movie, "Sans soleil" ("Sunless" in English) and goes into space.

"(...) you could imagine his music soundtracking any number of nature scenes, especially darker ones in this case, the chirping crickets and rustling branches his MCs and DJs. It’s been six years since Shitao’s last project, but the passage of time has done nothing to dull the producer’s seemingly innate ability to see and make others see the poetry and cinema in beatmaking. Bravo! " – Samuel Diamond (www.tinymixtapes.com)
