Obscure Visions is Fabián Ramírez. With alias 101001010101, Dr. Herom, Fabián Ramírez, Yspco, he does Hardcore Techno, Noise, Ambient, Dark Ambient, Experimental, IDM, EBM, 8-Bits, Neo-Classic and Trance music --since the age of 13! I like it best when he's doing dark ambient. Especially live on my Sadayatana! So this is the way it was Live on Sadayatana 2011-09-02. A great set that was performed live and released on Sadayatana 044: The Woodshed. Enjoy. Thanks Fabián.



Some sounds I used on my songs are made with kicks on the door, or lifts, boxes jeje.

This single-track album is based on guitar drones, that are a result of multiple processing. As it is understood from the title, the piece describes the flow of images, which appear during the sleep - and there are many different scenes in this dream.

And why is it "Hermit's" dream? Well, it is a long story, and firstly the picture on the album cover was the embodiment of this idea. You can see a yellow man, with a fan-like colourful substance coming in or coming out of his crown. At that time, I imagined that hermits, the people, who lead a secluded life, doing different creative stuff, look like that on the picture, from some unknown dimension.

This picture was drawn about a year and a half ago. And lately and unexpectedly a soundtrack for this image was born, which predominately depicts that exact "fan-like colourful substance". Thus, this album appear to be a philosophical and very abstract one, concerning some mental and energetical phenomena.

I wish you good night and sweet rainbow dreams...
