Renaissance-inspired music and poetry meets today’s technology in this immersive audio-visual show for choir and 3D-printed oboes, inspired by its creator’s vision for a post-nationalistic utopia.
Lead artist - Wojciech Rusin
Renaissance-inspired music and poetry meets today’s technology in this immersive audio-visual show, inspired by its creator’s vision of a post-nationalistic utopia. Real and metaphorical borders dissolve as a small choir, alternately singing and playing 3D-printed instruments, disperses itself amongst the audience, the sound reflected back by multi-channel audio allowing the audience to experience and embrace sound from all directions. Employing ‘just intonation’, with its elegant, natural and playful qualities, the music becomes free from historical or national traditions and the performers can play harmoniously together by happy coincidence, turning different individual notes into beautifully consonant music.
About the artists' work
“Rusin builds beautifully eccentric dreamscapes, audaciously blending courtly choir song, prim cello, occult mutterings and technological squawks.” - The Wire on The Funnel LP
"Highlight of the day however comes from Wojciech Rusin’s performance of their album The Funnel, (...) For all that occurs throughout their set, what we’re left with is a sense of sublime stillness, a stillness beamed outwards into the night." - The Quietus on live performance at Supernormal Festival 2019
"Soundscapes complete the multi-sensory depiction of what it’s like to live with the constant fear of violence: menacing electronic washes or pounding repetitive clashes of crockery build up, shredding your nerves." - The Independent on Our Glass House
