Folklor Invalid is a piece for amplified detuned cello and pre-recorded bass drum & screams. The cello part was recorded during a live performance at the (now unfortunately closed) KNOT gallery in Athens then played back and re-recorded using the gallery as an echo chamber. Screams where recorded at the CAMP gallery in Athens (also unfortunately closed now). The whole piece was then put together in the studio.

A live shorter interpretation of Folklor Invalid is included as a bonus track. A different cello was used on this performance (custom cello, built by Coti K.) which is tuned down further than the original recording.
