The album 3 Stigmata is based upon the dystopian novel ’The 3 stigmata of Palmer Eldrige’ by science fiction writer Philip K Dick. As Yair was suffering from kidney stone he had a lot of free time to work with many analog synths and devices (Roland SH 101, Roland Juno 6 Modular synth to name few). The results is a futuristic music journey in the spirit of the book and takes turns from ambient. modern composition, new age music and Krautrock.
