Done live using midi controller and hackintosh. Music fashioned using the buddhalizer. A virtual extension of my imagination.

Carmilla is based on the Gothic novella by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. Carmilla, the title character, is the original prototype for a legion of female and lesbian vampires.

First published in 1872, it tells the story of a young woman's susceptibility to the attentions of a female vampire named Carmilla. Carmilla predates Bram Stoker's Dracula by 25 years.

Featuring the spectacular voice of pixyblink as Carmilla. Drones were fashioned using the spectral content of various tracks from the Nine Inch Nails release "Ghosts I - IV (March 2, 2008)".
