Sylvia 14:16


dsrtdbch is the multifaceted project of Raphael Alexis Alvarez. It blends elements of ambient, techno, post-punk, and noise as a means to express spiritual and worldly matters of self with a focus on cathartic healing through sound meditation.

"Sylvia" touches on queer themes, existentialism, isolation, and space built on a foundation of minimal techno, house, and ambient soundscapes; it invites the listener to dance, meditate, and experience some semblance of release.
