In the course of the past few decades, weather has gradually been losing part of its „wildlife“ character. Scientists are experimenting with interventions in the climatic system, and massive manipulations have become regular practise. The shamanistic rain doctor of yore has evolved into an inventor of latest high-tech weaponry.
The Toxic Skies Orchestra provides the soundtrack for this scenario: acoustic ambient manipulations, drones, iridescent atmospheres, sounding chemtrails, bizarre soundscapes and roaring sound cascades. The Toxic Sky Orchestra creates live phantasmagoric visions of sunsets as well as of apocalyptic thunderstorms.
