Abneg comes from the word abnegation, whose meaning deals with altruism. However, this Maschke’s project uses this name more for its sound characteristic, since the artist identifies himself much more with nietzschean and individualistic lines of thought. Abject, superficially can be interpreted as something to be despised, but the greater meaning of this album name lies in the fact that it is the repulse for things that you could self-identificate yourself (something taken from Kristeva's work). In the words of Maschke: "The abject would be something repulsive, that we expunged to not destroy us. Death can be considered something abject par excellence representing just the annihilation of existence".
And death is a recurring easter egg in this work! It can be linked from track names to the fact that each song goes through more and more filters until its complete extinction/death by a frequency that gradually dissolves in the last track - this one with a sensorial extrapolation that goes to the physical experience by its very low frequencies. But the most interesting information of all is that Maschke said that, in spite of his profound inspiration and identification with western philosophy’s works, the whole creative process arose naturally, by unconscious impulsiveness, like almost all artistic works accompanied by extreme sincerity. This is the beauty - in the sense of something that catches attention at first listening and goes on in later auditions - that pervades Abjeto: Although its idealization was philosophical and profound, the creative process of the work was natural and carried out by the most sincere unconscious impulses!
