Taumatrop: a card with different pictures on either side, which, when the card is twirled rapidly, appear to blend into one.

For John Ayrton Paris is the discographic debut of Taumatrop, a duo formed in the year 2013 by Ferran Fages and Eduard Márquez. During the months of March, April and May 2013, Taumatrop worked on the construction of long, dronic pieces (initially with guitar and ultimately with electronic devices), in which the intention was to produce slow and intense crescendos. For John Ayrton Paris is one of the most significant pieces of this prolific research phase.
