Featured Guest

With a background in fine art Anna became interested in music in the late 2000s. In 2010 she moved to Berlin and graduated as an audio engineer and sound designer. In 2015 began writing music as The Allegorist. It’s a project with a holistic approach based on musical storytelling. Her debut album Botanical Utopia dropped a year later on Greek label Kraak Records.

Her second album, Hybrid Dimension I, was my introduction to her sound. Released on Detroit Underground in 2018, the scale and depth of the narrative of sound really stuck with me and I’ve been following her music ever since. Her latest album, her 4th, Blind Emperor dropped earlier this year on her own label Awaken Chronicles, to be followed up last month by the remix album The Round Table. It features reworks by amongst others – Max Dahlhaus, Blush Response, KMRU and Snakes of Russia.
