Electric Indigo & Thomas Wagensommerer “Morpheme” / World premiere / Lorenzo Senni “AAT (Advanced Abstract Trance)” / World premiere

Part of "CTM 2015 – Un Tune"


DJ, sound researcher, and female: pressure network founder Electric Indigo joins forces with visual artist Thomas Wagensommerer to produce an audiovisual exploration of a granular microcosm, titled “Morpheme”. Ranging from slowly-modulating crackles to pounding beats and sharp flashes, the multichannel surround-sound work is entirely composed of sounds derived from 9-second audio recording of a phrase from a talk by cultural theorist Sadie Plant at CTM 2014: “To let noise into the system is a kind of fine art in both cybernetic terms and in terms of making music too.” In de- and re-constructing Plant’s phrase, the work confronts cybernetics, where the “art of controlling” is challenged by the unassailable resistance of chaotic noise.

Milan-based artist Lorenzo Senni will extend his reconnaissance and abstraction of 90’s rave music from the exclusively aural to the visual and tactile with his project Advanced Abstract Trance. Based on a 28-minute study in which he assembled and recombined samples of static, breakdowns, and restarts from Trance, Hardstyle and HardTrance tracks, the project itself will draw exclusively from original sounds and be adapted for live multi-channel diffusion. Senni’s 2012 debut LP on Editions Mego, Quantum Jelly, and his 2014 mini-album on Boomkat Editions, Superimpositions, were lauded internationally for their “pointillistic trance” (in Senni’s words) and playful exploration of the emotional buildups and breakdowns of euphoric rave music.
