PARAFERAL SHOP has opened at a new location: shop.paraferal.com

Feel free to browse about and use the -20% off everything code while you’re there! The code is valid up to June 30. We may add more items in the next few days, perhaps more art prints and original artworks – all unique or very small editions – so keep an eye out.

The shop is still in “public beta” while we tidy up the last bits; excuse us for any temporary bumps.

Suddenly, perhaps unexpectedly, new TH€€€F arrives. Unrelated to current issues, the TISSUE SAMPLES series was being planned to begin last year, but was on hold due to more urgent things. This first one, TISSUE SAMPLES, 1 appeared on April 1, is available for free download and a small number of diy CDRs.

TH€€€F (pronounced: /θiːf/ – like ‘thief’) is a sound art project founded by Niko Skorpio. Focusing on live sampling of random radio broadcasts and recorded music, TH€€€F disregards notions of order and convention and enables something new to emerge from the debris. What may appear as annoying noise or nonsense to a culturally conditioned mind may unfold as vast non-euclidian constructions or sentient sonic entities to one liberated from such constraints. As such, TH€€€F suggests a new kind of psychoactive music aimed for deep listening and self-exploration, or sonic wallpaper for regular office hours, depending of prevalent circumstances.

Signal to noise ratio may vary.

We’re back online after a little break, with all new information, simplified shopping system and some new products for your pleasure. Thanks to all new and returning visitors for your patience during the downtime!

We will keep adding new items and further information on upcoming productions, etc. Many have asked for the option to purchase art prints, and that is indeed being worked on. Keep an eye on the site; a new section will be added to the shop for art prints (photos, gfx and reproductions) shortly.
