Ambient / dub EP inspired by "The Temptation of St. Anthony" by Gustave Flaubert.
Cover: "The Temptation of St. Anthony" Lucjan Wędrychowski (1886, detail)
"Form is perhaps an error of your senses, substance an illusion of your intellect. Unless it be that the world, being a perpetual flux of things, appearances, by a sort of contradiction, would not be a test of truth, and illusion would be the only reality. But are you sure that you see? Are you sure that you live? Perhaps nothing at all exists!"
The Devil has seized Antony, and, holding him by the extremities of his arms, stares at him with open jaws ready to swallow him up.
"Come, adore me! and curse the phantom that you call God!"
Antony raises his eyes with a last movement of lingering hope.
The Devil quits him.
