"Catherine" is a concept album about the disorders of childhood schizophrenia, violence, depression and anorexia, made according to the criteria of musique concrète, noise and polyphony. The 6 tracks tell the story of Cat, from early childhood until her suicide in adulthood.
"Pony" is based on audio samples of chewing gum and some psychiatric interviews to a patient of 6 years, taken on microcassette. This song tells of her killer instinct against the brother and parents.
"Teddy Bear Airport" is based on some monologues taken from experimental movies and radio interference, sampled on tape. The song talks about the refusal of her body and sexual problems of the protagonist in early adolescence.
In "Mama do not cry" samples of toys and recordings of sound waves emitted from 6 tin spinners were used. It is the greeting to console her mother before the suicide, which is revealed in "Chrysanthemum". This track was created using modified vinyls and 4 vintage phonobags.
The name "Catherine" was inspired by the painting by Raphael "Lady with the Unicorn", depicting the martyr Catherine of Alexandria who represents the deepest nature of pain in a visionary, poetic and almost sacred way.
The art work was hand-made by LaMetàFisica using a black BIC pen and it's a hyper realistic representation of a mutilated corpse.
