“The fact that our body is constantly traced and measured is nothing new at this point. In this society we need obfuscation techniques and strategies for camouflaging and fading ourselves into the background, so we retain control of our bodies. Some of these tactics involve chaos and voids, low res behaviours or keeping awareness of our traces. The Swarm is a collection of sound sketches based on emotional data collected in a silo by my own body and by my own will”.
Live sound set with sound-reactive visuals made with Unity, 3D scanning and photogrammetry.
Project developed in residency at Oudeis (Le Vigan, France). Thanks to Eufònic Festival and Institut Ramon Llull.
Silicone is based on a simple idea: acquire data to develop a new reality from it.
Twisting facts and manipulating reality is like medicine: it works when you get the right dose at the right time. Nothing new. Managed outcomes brought us to this post-political world, but at the end of the day, this process is inherent to human condition. We’ve seen this before in last USA election, Brexit, dictatorships, tulip mania, religious texts, cave paintings. Control of narrative is more important than narrative per se.

Lubrication. Distance. Cohabitating. Loss of self. Synthesis as present. Sampling as past. Not in the future. Mediocre. Cowardice. Dehumanization. Blurring of message. Filtering and relaxation. Non-movement. Very fucking real sim city. Populism. Tyranny. Nationalism. Altered state. Reality immitation. Privacy. Self-imposed censorship. FM sound. Political correctness. How we receive information. Quantized. Processed. Emulation. The way we relate to other people. VST. Randomness. Parodies. Its been something latent for years. Softness. Work. Opinion. Criticism. Nice short polyphony note stopping effect. Cultural equality. Synesthesia. Recurring problems. Vaseline.

Tanz is somewhere between Cnossos palace and skyscrapers before 9/11, in a VR space build in media limbo. The air is fulfilled with melancholy and desires of keeping human structures on foot.
