Opaque features a selection of tracks that were made for Dutch theater play #vechtersbazen by director Inge Wannet.
The play, set in the old abandoned Phillips factory, is about a group of young people who do not agree with how things are going in the world, and cant find ways to improve it. They therefore make the radical decision to retreat into the darkness.
Inspired by these themes, the industrial environment, repetitiveness, and the hint of light creeping through the darkness, The Eichler Brothers deliberately avoided the use of acoustic instruments and only used analog synthesizers. And thus created an filmy alternate world for the listener to disappear.
