the.collapse features a series of tension & rupture responding each other as a kind of permanent struggle between power & weakness. it tells a story about a fragile balance between the human feeling of omnipotency and the fragility of global system on which everything above is based. as a metaphor calling up Jarry’s Ubu Roi play, the.collapse ﬁgures and links king reign’s declining vs globalized society’s quasi-physical crackling. through these 5 pieces, I tried to create a suﬀocating tension, growing up and being more & more audible through deep listening. each track ﬁgures a speciﬁc moment in time and some could feel a reverse sorting according to the last one title (opening) ; this speciﬁc order emphasizes the idea of disorientation, trying to push our feeling further through confusion and chaos, what is the beginning? the end ? is the end, the real end of story ? did the tensions have disappeared or are they still growing up until the next physical rupture?
the.collapse has been composed and arranged through a series of speciﬁc sound recording in studio, using ﬁeld recorded samples and synthesis, all as live recordings in order to keep the improvisation feeling and touch more collectable, keeping error & environmental disturbances possible and the fact we have no choice but dealing with it.
