    The Biopholio™ is a two-sided, 20-panel origami-inspired medium, bursting with vibrant artwork and liner notes; each one made entirely out of FSC-certified, robust paper, hand-folded and printed using plant-based inks. There is no Compact Disk (CD) or plastic in this product.

    Found inside each Biopholio™ is a unique code for the listener to digitally download the music in hers/his preferred format (high CD-quality, uncompressed WAV files, et cetera...)

    This innovative design caters to the environmentally-conscious listener, who is aware of the harmful effects of plastic in the environment, yet feels that a digital download is just not enough. With your purchase, you are supporting the future of this music and the artists who create it with the added bonus of receiving a tangible piece of original album artwork that you can proudly cherish for years to come.

    Artwork & design by Zora Oberhänsli.

about

This is about a birth, and the triad of Joseph, María, and Jesus. The virgin birth symbolizes to me the world being created out of nothing; the first sound; the beginning of everything out of nothing. The saxophone plays the intro alone, representing virgin conception. The cue to bring the band in is the implantation of the ovule inside María’s uterus; afterwards the song carries on normally (pun intended) for a while, until it starts to progressively accelerate as it depicts María’s contractions and her finally giving birth to the Sun.
