Based primarily on Pataphysics developed by Alfred Jarry in the late 19th century, and the work of the surrealist René Daumal, the project also aims to visualize and sonify its various concepts. This phantasmal pataphysics is particularly relevant in an era like ours, where the absence of any possible truth is now systematic, even on a societal level; authenticity is hidden, if not faded, in an absence.

Therefore, the ghost of truth encompasses all ghosts, and Spectral Unit gives sonic form to what comes closest to the spectral absence of which Daumal speaks. Moreover, can we imagine a clear boundary between absence and presence? Perhaps it is music, being inherently invisible, that is the ideal instrument to approach absence, narrating disappearance, exploring becoming and witnessing the vast void that swallows every positivism, every balance between theory and reality. Symmetrically, the ghostly absence engulfs every social and political utopia, opening the doors to a chaotic and spectral reality.

The debut album entitled “Preternatural” explores, alongside Pataphysics, the concepts of the landscape of memory, parapsychology, spectral ontology, psychic phenomena, and archaeoacoustics. From a musical perspective, the album features sumptuous, refined, and dark electronics, where various passages are architecturally carved into space, creating true moving sonic sculptures, and compositions unfold in unknown and geometrically impossible worlds.
