"Screen Time" is an album by Downtrend Shapes Renewal that will be released by Focused Silence on 25th January 2019. The work is a fifty-four minute album exploring the madness of humanity, alienation in the age of the smart phone and tales of extra terrestrial visitation.
“I’m interested in the cognitive dissonance required to reason that in order to save millions of lives, you must first destroy millions of lives. Japan were the guinea pigs for this experiment and some believe that once we learnt to destroy worlds, so people from other worlds began to keep tabs on our new abilities.”
Although Downtrend Shapes Renewal was one of three thousand anagrams generated by their name and an online algorithm, they chose the moniker because they believe it suggests that life can come from death, new order can rise from chaos and at very least we can learn from our mistakes in order to shape a better future.
