As Mark Fisher states “in a postmodern society there is no innovation. Just rehashing nostalgic, vintage trends”, everything seems to flow fluidly from a conformation to another, as soon as the right dose of oblivion let us believe we are facing something new. Our frontier thus become the ability to force us to remember and - as artists - the struggle to watch our work from the outside and understand if it’s capable of facing our time and narrating it. An isolated guitar loops a cracked riff surrounded by field recordings, a dense cloud of radio noises and panning found objects, like the soundscape of a decaying automated musician.
