††† Crosses


Formation and self-titled EP (2011)

Having recorded together previously, Deftones singer Chino Moreno began recording with childhood friend and neighbour Shaun Lopez, also of the band Far, as well as Scott Chuck. Moreno described the project as “minimal and soothing and it’s sort of like the stuff I like listening to when I’m not screaming my head off.”
With a tentative title of Crosses as the name of the project, they began recording for over fours a day, completing nearly 16 songs with plans to self-release a series of EPs.

Their debut self-titled EP was released for free on August 2, 2011, with a higher quality version made available for purchase on their website. Sean Adams of Drowned in Sound stated that the EP “finds the pair drifting toward Depeche Mode territory, and wandering into the blissed our summer breezes of Diamond Eyes” while the music is “both unnerving and upliftin but’s that that lithe-yet-dominant, serpent voice, which puts you beneath its sex hex, which is, as always, utterly lush and makes this debut EP the start of something special.” -Wiki

I finally got it! Lovetune For Vacuum by Soap&Skin, 2009

Soap&Skin is the experimental musical project of Austrian artist Anja Franziska Plaschg, who was born in April 1990.
She grew up in a small village called Gnas in south east Styria, where her parents have a pig fattening farm.
At the age of 14 she began violin studies and developed an interest in electronic music.

She attended the Graz Polytechnic for Graphic Design, but dropped out at 16 and moved to Vienna shortly afterwards.
There she studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts in the master class of Daniel Richter, but at 18 dropped out again.

Works of Anja Plaschg will be part of the art exhibition:
