XP8
from MARCO VISCONTI: the fourteenth Trump
May 01, 2015, 03:03:pm
On this very May Day, 14 years ago, three guys who met just slightly more than twelve months before in the dark recesses of Rome’s dirties goth clubs decided to forego the celebrations of the day (May 1st is a national holiday in Italy, and a huge concert is organised in one of Rome’s biggest squares, Piazza San Giovanni) and instead hid in one of their homes, playing with samples, synths and drum machines - yes, 2001 was still the year of hardware electronics.

In the Crowley-Harris Thoth deck, the fourteenth Trump is called “Art”, and the Master Therion writes about it: “Transmute all wholly into the image of thy will, bringing each to its true token of perfection. “…Combination of forces, realization, action based on accurate calculation; the way of escape, success after elaborate manoeuvres…” 
Fourteen years later, this seems to me the best way to depict my own personal experience with XP8.

I won’t bother you all again with the reasons why we are stopping now: not only I already voiced my thoughts many times in the past year, and you can still read them here or here, but I also keep reading comments like “oh, I’ve heard more from this band now that they quit than ever before”, or “man, that was the longest goodbye ever”.

It was meant to be like this: if I learned something over this years is that unless you are in the business of making pre-canned pop music (which is absolutely a good business, mind you!), you need to create more than “just” music. You need to create a narrative, a myth that people can relate with in every possible way, you need to become an icon for them to both love AND hate. 
Only by doing so you can leave a mark.

I think we did leave that mark, among very few others. 
No matter what you think of our music or of us personally, you have one opinion about us: and that means we exist in your noosphere, and that is more than 99% of other bands out there. That is our revenge. 

Fourteen years ago, XP8 started as a (rather crappy at first) amateurish musical project, and it evolved into a complex hypersigil that will keep on reverberating its message for years to come.

Thank you all for the ride.

- Marco Visconti

from MARKO RESURRECCION: farewell and goodbye (at least for now)
May 01, 2015, 03:02:pm
Dear listeners,

as some of you may know, or may have somehow noticed, I am not a great communicator.
Never been.
Plague of my life.
But on a watershed moment like this, even I feel the urge to put fingers to keys and commit some pixels to your screens and - oh how much I hate the word now - “share”…




For many years now, writing and singing for XP8 has been my means of expressing my feelings, my views and a lot of my grudges.
Unfortunately for you listeners this has meant that you were not at the forefront of my mind when the music happened, when decisions were taken.
Unfortunately for XP8 this has meant that we have lost just as many listeners as we have gained.
I can’t shake the feeling that most of XP8’s perceived success is more rooted in Marco’s undeniable web talent than the quality of our musical output.

But grown we have.
And better we did become

But too late.
And I think it’s only right to close this project now.
Now that we can be proud of what we are, if not of what we have achieved, and before we become caricatures of our former selves.
I’ve learned so much through XP8: about music, about myself, about others, about love.

it’s been great.
Exhilarating.
At times downright frustrating.
Always worth it.

I will probably bother your ears some more soon.

Until then, farewell and goodbye

- Marko Resurreccion

Thank you as well for including the fans in this. We're learning from you as well. XP8 is dead was a sad tune man. However I definitely understand the reasoning behind it. I will be following your crew to see what they do next. Thank you.

XP8 is dead

With the release of the last EP in our Alchemy Series started 9 months ago, we conclude the XP8 experience.

It's been a long fun ride which lasted almost 15 years, brought us on the stages of all the world along several tours and countless festival appareances, and let us define the sound of a generation.

Thanks to all who have been supporting us and thanks also to all the silly trolls on forums like this one: without you, too, things would have been less interesting!

You can get the last EP and the entire Alchemy series on Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon MP3, or listen to it on Spotify, Soundcloud and YouTube.

"Two Of Three: Albedo" OUT NOW!
October 31, 2014, 10:15:am
"Two Of Three: Albedo", the second EP in our Alchemy Series, is out now!
 

Everyone who pre-ordered it either on Bandcamp or iTunes should have received their copies directly, and everyone else can purchase it right now, or stream it on Spotify.
 
In alchemy, albedo is one of the four major stages of the magnum opus; along with Nigredo, Citrinitas and Rubedo. It is a Latinicized term meaning whiteness. Following the chaos or massa confusa of the Nigredo stage, the alchemist undertakes a purification in albedo, which is literally referred to as ablutio – the washing away of impurities. In this process, the subject is divided into two opposing principles to be later coagulated to form a unity of opposites or coincidentia oppositorum during Rubedo.
 
Titus Burckhardt interprets the albedo as the end of the lesser work, corresponding to a spiritualization of the body. The goal of this portion of the process is to regain the original purity and receptivity of the soul. Psychologist Carl Jung equated the albedo with unconscious contrasexual soul images; the anima in men and animus in women. It is a phase where insight into shadow projections are realized, and inflated ego and unneeded conceptualizations are removed from the psyche.

celebrating the EQUINOX: here's "Heatwave"
September 23, 2014, 03:56:pm
To celebrate the Equinox, here's Heatwave straight out Two Of Three: Albedo: the second phase of the alchemical transformation will be reached on on the eve of 31st October 2014, in time for the pagan festivities of Samhain (also know as Hallowe’en).

Following the chaos or massa confusa of the Nigredo stage, the alchemist undertakes a purification in Albedo, which is literally referred to as ablutio – the washing away of impurities. In this process, the subject is divided into two opposing principles to be later coagulated to form a unity of opposites or coincidentia oppositorum during Rubedo.

Here can already pre-order it on Bandcamp and get Heatwave right now.
iTunes pre-orders will follow-up soon.
