Notes“Stefania am Rande der Nacht” by Belarus-based supergroup, Ignodeau, is dedicated to Mathieu Seiler’s 1995 psychological thriller film, “Stefanie’s Geschenk”. The Internet came up short on having available a version of the film with English subtitles, so I only know as much about the film as I could discern from the characters’ dictation and how the story plays out through the film’s visuals.
Essentially, I’m relying on mood. So it’s interesting to have first found about the film from Ignodeau’s musical dedication to it, which in itself is an experiment in mood and tension. Synth-driven movements that establish themselves thoroughly before one begins to notice the slight alterations weaved into the framework.
It’s representational of our protagonist, Stefania, and her transformation in the film from her youth into the twisted subjective reality of her adolescence. It’s harsh at times, raw, and terrifying. A descent towards madness split into five acts that replaces the "Heart of Darkness’ " jungle with the rough-hewn, industrial textures of the city.

"Although dancefloor-worthy beats assert themselves throughout the majority of the album, my focus is mostly drawn to the synth-dominant music throughout, which veers from ambient, textural ideas to early industrial gear-grinding."
