To forcefully recontextualize experimental and contemporary music // to negate the sonic description of innovation created by global north in the 21st century // to negate the fictional history of development in experimental music // to reconsider counterpoint as a colonial fragment // to reconsider tonal harmony as a colonial fragment // to reconsider the clavichord and baroque music as a colonial fragment // to consider the charango as a virtual extended technique instrument // to rethink the clavichord within a new possiblity for counterpoint // to acknologde the “herofication” of european musical landmarks as a form of ideology // to propose and practice an open multiple form view for new music // to negate a local practice and dialogue as a universal speech // to practice and recenter global south as the matter of the conversation // to ignore their idols // to profit from the gringo’s system // to buy my grandma a house // pela paz do corpo mestiço pardo brasileiro // to ocupy their spaces // pela malandragem // “europe is indefensible” // “demorou, eu quero é mais, eu quero até sua alma” // pelo lixo ocidental // eu nasci pobre mas nao nasci otario // good luck getting me out of your deutsche land
ЛІСИ, LASY, ГОРИ | BWKŁS CHOIR | GALLERY WEEKEND / BERLIN ART WEEK
GALERIE MOLITOR, STUDIO MONDIAL | 17SEPT23 | BERLIN, GER
Started by Wojciech Kosma, The BWKŁS Choir is named after an acronym of the first song they sang together: Bojące Wszystkich Krajów Łączmy Się ("The Afraid of All Lands Unite"). The choir stages performances that weave together collective singing, electronic music, poetry, dance and improvisation. Their continuously developing performances center around an intention to forge a space for emotional community and explore the potential of the voice to imagine and access a connection to the non-human world. The choir comprises professional and amateur singers as well as writers, choreographers, music producers, and visual artists. Marcioz performed improvised electronics alongside the choir as well as prepared compositions with the choir.

JOVEMDEU$ | THURSDAY,16JUL20 | CURITIBA, BRASIL
3 track EP released on Marcioz label, jovemdeu$. DE/COLONIAL WRITING$ takes influences from samba, flamenco, trap and industrial music to develop a new possibility for the brazilian music pallete. Growing up in Curitiba, Marcioz was immersed in samba carnival bands since a kid, playing repinique, surdo and other typical instruments present in afrobrazilian music. That same origin makes key difference to define DE/COLONIAL WRITING$ as a sound wishing to imagine electronic music from the colonial period in Brazil. The project doesn't try to solve any of the worlds issues, simply accepting its uncapabilities, it rather wants to cause thought, imagination and creativity from the listener.
Coverart from Osório Belêm.

JOVEMDEU$ IN PARTNERSHIP WITH NURTURED IDEAS | THURSDAY, 02AUG19 | DIGITAL - NEW YORK, USA
Composed between 2018 - 2019, MULATO TRAGIDY is directly inspired by the works of Franz Fanon, more specifically "Black Skins, White Masks" and Lilly Swarts's "O Espetáculo das Raças". Both books had a significant impact during the compositional process, as they offered reasoning, wakening and understanding behind a 2 decade long hurting of internalized hatred and scars of direct racism. The EP sonically investigates the narrow spaces between branquitude and negritude in Brasil, self diagnosing the position of the Pardo, Mulato and Mestiço body in the project plan of populational whitening that occurred in Brasil since the XXth century. The EP takes as departure the term "tragic mulatto" which is present in American literature and oral tradition, as a way to self diagnose and investigate the confusion and gaslighting process that was forced upon the black and pardo population in Brasil as form of colonial colorist strategy. Special thanks to Helena Taborda Monahan, Stéfanos Pinkuss, Thiago Mendes.
