Toyota Corona
3 LPs

was made during – and is the result of – confinement
it is a film without images, it is a home-made film,
and my home is Berlin,
it is the soundtrack of a period
during which some activities were stopped and in the silence left behind,
have given way to other sounds, other machines,
animals too,
many animals..
and then events, news,
in short a generalized feverishness.
And as it is written somewhere on the sleeve :
no story
no movie

Post California, a project led by an ex-member of A V G V S T, uses samples of distorted pop music, vaporous layers and exaggerated, almost noisy sound treatments to produce a sort of after new wave. Their music is at times shaken by nervous beats, at other times drowned in streams of ambient and sprinkled with flashes of industrial.
Post California’s second album, View from a View, is a collection of six tracks based on random sampling, collage, and hypnotic synth and guitar micro-loops, wrapped in reverb and damaged by compression.

Девочки и институции

Posted in Gender, literature, novel on February 28th, 2024
Tags: , , , ,

Героини «Девочек и институций» работают в государственных учреждениях культуры. Это особый мир, похожий на морок, стремящийся навязать свои непрозрачные законы каждой и каждому, кто попал туда. Жалобы в департамент, подотчетные мероприятия, квартальные премии, отчеты и выговоры составляют основу повседневности этого мира. Девочки здесь — вторичный элемент системы, на котором, впрочем, вся эта система и держится. С системой они вступают в сложные и нередко созависимые отношения: живут по ее законам, иногда бунтуют, иногда подчиняются, скорбят, радуются и танцуют, уходят и возвращаются. Дарья Серенко попыталась описать этот мир девочек и институций, чтобы сделать хор сотен девочек различимее за привычным шумом госмашины и официальной культуры. «Девочки и институции» — точный портрет эпохи, в которую мы живем, портрет, написанный с невидимого раньше ракурса.

Vibrational Semantics Series

Vibrational Semantics explores the voice’s ability to shift seamlessly between signification and sorority, from speech sound to noise. Questions of linguistic ambiguity, embodied voicing and feeling/meaning are investigated in relation to the place and presence of the performed voice.

The project is part of Samuel Brzeski’s ongoing artistic engagement with Lydatgalleriet, involving several newly commissioned text works curated by Samuel and commissioned by Lydgalleriet.
