Ophelia Sullivan – Disposable Identity

October 30, 2023Independent

Avant Pop
Post Progressive

Writing a New Story

When an artist who has already been in active before starts something new, it often makes sense to have a look at their previous works. In the case of Leipzig-based producer, composer, multiinstrumentalist and vocalist Ophelia Sullivan that means listening to their experimental Electronica projects Aphexia or Ecstasphere, and to Prog Metal band Soulsplitter. And by doing that, one will definitely discover elements which have also made it to Ophelia Sullivan’s solo debut Disposable Identity. But we shall not forget that

The Whole is greater than the Sum of its Parts

Infinite Freedom

Disposable Identity is not only the most unbound release that Ophelia Sullivan has published so far. The nine-track longplayer pushes the limits of freedom, independence and autonomy in sonic arts in general. Ophelia Sullivan breaks with conventions, stirs up contrasts, and reattaches antagonist sounds amidst a whole new dimension. You may use terms such as Trip Hop, Avant Pop, Progressive Metal or Post Rock when talking about single sequences of Disposable Identity. But every time you think you have found the pigeonhole to categorise Ophelia Sullivan in, they joyfully laugh at your efforts and immediately transfer to a whole new sphere.

Identity and Progress

Disposable Identity is a true masterpiece, and it is the result of a long process. Some of the songs and their ideas have been in the working for almost ten years. Only in the second year of the Coronacene, Ophelia Sullivan began with the actual production of them. Now, two years later, this deeply personal and reflected opus can finally be heard. And every moment of this album proves that it was worth waiting for it. Every twist, every unexpected turn spreads joy and emotional warmth. Disposable Identity is an album for all senses, and it is a beautiful display if diversity, and the true meaning of the word progress.
