Resistance

RESISTANCE started as a clubbing derivative of multimedia concert performance Frozen Images. It premiered at UltraWax event in klub K4. It is a move towards the transcendence of a dancefloor, especially of its potential of conscious and deliberate bodily resistance to the force of rationality. It uses a language of electronic rhythms, repetitive patterns of metalic melody, violent funk and carefuly crafted dynamics of suspense, peaks and minimalism. Away from the spectacle it reaches closer to sweaty bodies in darkness.

Thematically and formally it is talking about sexuality at the root of human motivation - it's a sonic, textual and visual space that poses questions about how do we relate to each other and the world. What is the emotional architecture of this process of relating? When does power turn into domination and in what circumstances a lovely person desires its own submission? How much fake sugar is needed to cover up one's depression and how powerful are visual strategies for ideologies of capitalistic commodification so that one stops seeing another human being the way it is? A hybrid performance and electronic music somewhere between electropunk, triphop and breaks.
