'History of Man' is a ten episode audio, visual and literary project inspired by John Milton's epic poem "Paradise Lost", where all elements are designed to be experienced simultaneously as a single opus. The first offering from Illangelo's cinematic electronic soundscape starts with "Crash Landing", which takes place at a committee hearing where the board members attempt to piece together the escape of our protagonist, Prisoner #870729.
