"The deepest space, where no one can hear you scream... where everything happened. Her husband disappeared swallowed by that dark infinity during a mission. His hands, his eyes never saw... Could she have done something different?

These memories were too painful for Lissa. That’s why she turned to DATABLEED™

Lissa left the DATABLEED™ service center finally deprived of her distressing memories. The memory of the death of her companion during the space mission ended up in a floppy disk that she kept in her bag. She no longer remembered even having had a husband, having flown into space, or having been an astronaut: everything that was connected to that tragedy had been carefully removed from her mind.
Still, an inexplicable sense of emptiness and the melancholy of a lost love led her to purchase the new MEMODEL® System: a floppy drive to manage and recover memories. DATABLEED™ had put it on the market without adequate tests. She didn’t know the hardware was defective. During the re-installation process, it couldn’t differentiate the conscious memories from the unconscious.
And so Lissa got the memory of her lost love back, but at the same time she started... dreaming. She dreamed of a space station with corridors and endless rooms, where she wandered in search of his companion, she saw him turn a corner and disappear, and when she thought she had understood how the space station worked and looked like, it inexorably changed, and she found herself lost once again. Every night something terrible happened... and she awoke suddenly, convulsing. The dream censorship preserved her from seeing clearly the contents of that unsettling memory.
After an unspecified number of months, one day, Lissa, now on the verge of madness, plugged herself in to the MEMODEL® and turned it on. As soon as the lights started flickering, she poured a cup of hot black coffee on it".

A new dungeon awaits us, the most intricate and dark, the most dangerous and frightening: that of the human mind.

SPECTRAUM, a mysterious musical project self-generated by a computer, is back with "Datableed", a concept album about memory, human and not human. The first song, "Infoshock" is a distressing loop of industrial sound, a rattling funeral march, where confused memories emerge from the subconscious with the delicacy of a jackhammer.

"Memodel" is a choir of anonymous, bodyless voices, a symphony of neurasthenic violins that causes a hemorrhage of painful memories, a symphony played by an orchestra of exhausted musicians, who progressively slide, with the help of chemical pills , in a restless sleep.

Finally "Astrotel", mysterious and dark jewel of the album: astral jazz played by a sad computer, a lunar raga that resounds in the void of forgotten memories. Thousands of robot-dervishes dance relentlessly victims of a mechanical malfunction, in a loop without end and without beginning. The mind wanders in the deepest space, getting lost herself in the soft and pitiful embrace of oblivion ...
