In 2013 Roly Porter released the conceptual album ”Life Cycle of a Massive Star”, which constructed an immense and expanding universe of sound around the life and death of a huge celestial body.

The record mixes slow, vulcanic masses of sound, which hits the listener like cosmic radiation, with a grand narrative, where the infinitesimally short lives and existential sufferings of the human race is contrasted with the inescapable cosmic cycle of creation and doom. A dark, ecstatic and incredibly dynamic piece of music, which Porter will perform in its entirety on PHONO14.
