from Vigilia, released November 1, 2013
Detrás de OIKOS se esconde Rafael Femiano, un proyecto de música experimental que comenzó en Madrid en 2007junto a David San Martin (ahora mismo no se encuentra en la banda) y que se caracteriza por guitarras procesadas, temás armónicos y cinematográficos. A través del sello norteamericano Utech Records se dieron a conocer al público con su primer disco ‘Ecotono’ (2011) y, pocos años después el sello norteamericano Land of Decay les edita en cassette ‘Solve et Coagvla’ (2013), en donde destacan temas como ‘Omniscience’ con guitarras de André Foisy (Locrian, Kwaidan).

VIGILIA es el debut de OIKOS con Knockturne, tres nuevos temas que abren el camino a una nueva visión de su música. Silencios y atmósferas más solemnes que adquieren mayor significado y se conjugan con nuevos elementos como guitarras acústicas, arreglos de cuerdas y grabaciones de campo. Un cassete único y con personalidad propia, en donde han colaborado los destacados Ann Deveria, y que confirma el cuidado trabajo de esta grabación.
