Vatican Shadow is the Techno outfit from multi-media artist Dominick Fernow, where melodic loops and martial jagged rhythms juxtapose a sinister and seductive ambience. Dominick Fernow, while more recently regarded for his explorations of dance music, is of course better known for his iconic noise project, Prurient. Fernor defines 'noise' as "the freedom to explore personal obsession outside of audience and genre."

Vatican Shadow began in 2010, with concrete percussion, luscious synths, and metallic drums created by separating stems onto cassettes, which were then re-layered and collaged live. In the flesh Vatican Shadow brings a physicality and even celebratory energy rarely seen in Techno offsetting the hypnotic ambient melodies of his tracks to a thundering drum assault – a true expression of the fear and fearlessness that fuels the music.
