Sonic Performance, KNVNT event, Berlin, September 2021

Dérives Bleues

Evokes hypnotic tones, levitating textures and distant echoes, inspired by Delia Derbyshire’s SeaThe Dreams and a radical change of landscape during the summer of 2021. Shifiting from terrestrial to aquatic realms, it reflects the potential of imagination, dreams and how environmental change impacts us. The sonic journey is made with processed field recordings, the artist’s vocals, acoustic objects and electronics.

KNVNT, art collective, gathered live performances, video installations, creative workshops and DJ sets for this sonic event in Berlin. Dérives Bleues was performed in a cellograph, created by Popticum.

                                                      the hum sits with us
                                                     from soil to full flight
                                                                                   echoes of warmth
