Khôra by The Macula (Amar Mulabegović and Daniel Gregor) and JTNB (Ondřej Skala).

"Khôra (Khora or Chora; Ancient Greek: χώρα)
is a philosophical term described by Plato in Timaeus as a receptacle, a space, or an interval. It is neither being nor nonbeing but an interval between in which the 'forms' were originally held. Khôra 'gives space' and has maternal overtones (a womb, matrix). A formless and unnameable 'it' that we cannot identify but only evoke with images of unidentifiable places, like a kind of dissolution into the tohu wa bohu (waste and void), what Levinas calls the il y a (the Other - a formless void; a frightening neutrality devoid of meaning), the elemental night."
