The latest release from the Essentia Mundi label.

Dystopian dark ambient - unplug from the network while still possible. The version of our future connecting strong AI, IoT and cyberhumans and a dark outcome...thou shall escape!

Embrace our high tech. future, with a concept album that unites concepts like strong Artificial Intelligence, Internet Of Things and Cyber Humans and portrays a possible fatal outcome for humanity.

This is nicely crafted (dystopian) dark ambient from Germany, by argyre planitia (Stefan Voss). He began to be interested in dark ambient around 2011 and began to produce in this style and released his first album on Petroglyph Music in 2013. To him the dark ambient genre has a great creative potential as this genre is more open to sounds and sound experiments than any other musical style. To him it is also a very relaxing experience both in listening and creating.

He is using a mixed setup of software and hardware to produce the dark ambient soundscapes on his releases and live. Musically his influences are more classical like early Pink Floyd and post punk / dark wave to the Berlin school like K. Schulze or Brian Eno's music. Although he's not making these styles of rock or Berlin school, all this music has somehow influenced his understanding of music.

He has material published on Petroglyph Music and Ambient Online. He can also be heard on Dark Ambient Radio (

His influences: During the last years, I discovered the large field of dark ambient with raison d’être, Kammarheit, Phelios, Atrium Carceri, Lamia Vox, Bad Sector, SETI, Vestigial and many, many, many others and got a lot of inspiration from it.
