Panopticon

by Darshan Pulse

Loosely based on Orwell's 1984, this art-rock epic explores the idea of a society trapped under total surveillance. Lightning leads and poetic melodies infuse this intellectual debut with a pop sensibility that gets in your head and stays there.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album makes use of a triumvirate of well-known anthems against the power of the State, and the power of prisons specifically - George Orwell's 1984, Jeremy Bentham's Panopticon, and Michel Foucault's Discipline and Punish. This album explores the mind of a man manipulated under such a system; a system that is not just a metaphor for abstract control any longer, but is becoming more and more relevant every day. Video cameras are everywhere - in computers, in phones, on every building - and personal information is smeared across the internet like so much debris. This album speaks more to the dangers of today than ever before. And like all good art rock, it works as a concept album, tying together a single narrative. The songs are linked irrevocably, borrowing lyrics and melodies from each other, and structured to lead to the highest height, an asymptotic view of the world as it is, not as it appears to be. The narrative follows a man's thoughts across a two-act song cycle, at once feeling for him and fearing for him, but also highlighting the nature of the evil that he faces. And a widespread evil it is. Through poetic metaphor, the rise and fall of empires comes to life.
