Phantasus Morphea


Phantasus Morphea is industrial/experimental project from Ljubljana (Slovenia). Here is the text that explains it all:

The Greek god of dreams. He lies on a ebony bed in a dim-lit cave, surrounded by poppy. He appears to humans in their dreams in the shape of a man. He is responsible for shaping dreams, or giving shape to the beings which inhabit dreams.

Morpheus, known from Ovid's Metamorphoses, plays no part in Greek mythology. His name means "he who forms, or molds" (from the Greek morphe), and is mentioned as the son of Hypnos, the god of sleep.

Morpheus ("he who forms, shapes, molds", from the Greek morphe) is the principal Greek god of dreams and sleep.

Morpheus has the ability to take any human's form and appear in dreams. His father is Hypnos the god of sleep. Pasithea is his mother, and Thanatos, the personification of death, is his uncle. The sons of Hypnos .. are rulers of dreams, and also include Phobetor (a.k.a. Icelus), and Phantasus.

...it is not about notes...or big and small letters w/ dots...
...they all serve a purpose...
...the sound enters the soul...
...it works as the ethereal monument
...is acts as a purificator and a channelizer of the divine power, hidden inside a fabric of eternity...
it is fragile as the wind...and yet powerfull as the greatest of the storms
...this project is all about the power of the real true magic...

Morpheus is spoken of in the Metamorphoses of Ovid. He sleeps on an ebony bed in a dimly-lit cave, surrounded by poppy flowers. Ovid suggests that Morpheus has a special talent for mimicking human form in dreams. According to Ovid, Morpheus concentrated on the human elements of dreams, his brothers Phobetor and Phantasos being responsible for animals and inanimate objects respectively.

Morpheus sends images of humans in dreams or visions, and is responsible for shaping dreams, or giving shape to the beings which inhabit dreams. Icelus assisted with those aspects of dreams that reflected reality. Phobetor made fearsome dreams (hence "phobia"). Phantasus produced tricky and unreal dreams (hence "fantasy", "phantasmagoria", etc.). Together these sons of Hypnos rule the realm of dreams. Morpheus also had special responsiblity for the dreams of kings and heroes. For these reasons Morpheus is often referred to as "Morpheus the Greek god of dreams" in superiority to his brothers.
