The project is an electronic soundtrack to an imagined fictional film.

Lara Sarkissian, aka Club Chai co-founder FOOZOOL, has released DISRUPTION, her debut EP for the Bay Area-based label and event series.

According to the label, the EP is the soundtrack to an imagined fictional film “inspired from stories of Armenian mythology, the transition from the worship of nature to the roles of gods and goddesses and tying these narratives to encounters with familial spirits.”

The soundtrack uses electronic composition, traditional instruments from the Armenian Highlands, as well as samples from old cartoons and “distorted narrations of rituals.”

The project follows 8ULENTINA’s Eucalyptus EP and Jasmine Infiniti’s Sis. Recently, Club Chai was featured in our list of the best labels of 2018.
