The Story/Idea behind “Madeleine Effect”

CRYPTEX’s second studio album „Madeleine Effect“ devotes itself to the eponymic phenomenon which deals with sensory perceptions that influence one’s body and soul. People report on stirrings of emotions associated with childhood experiences „or the like“ (positive, same as negative ones) that can be triggered individually through music and sounds. By triggering these emotional associations, people can “relive” their contextual associated memories. By instrumentalizing certain musical compositions and arrangements, ”Madeleine Effect” tries to take the audience back to their multilayered and self-defining memories from the past, with its very individual but always influencial feelings of love, hope, warmth, shelter – but also feelings of grief, pain and loneliness.

„Extract the beauty and pureness of pain, realize the anarchy of transience
and you´ll comprehend „Madeleine Effect!“ – Simon Moskon
