Epoch Collapse is an experimental electronic music & audio-visual/multi-media project of composer/media technician Dariusz Roberte.
Epoch Collapse is not affiliated within any particular movement or trend in music or media, though his music or sound art could be categorised or described as ‘symphonic sound-scape’, ‘dark-ambient’, ‘electronic avant-garde’, ‘industrial’, ‘space-rock’, ‘film score music’ etcetera. The compositions involve a fair degree of multi-layering and textural complexity which has almost become a musical trademark.
