Ritual Protest Music

Politically charged, hyperreal and unremitting soundscapes containing harsh social and self-criticism clad in a sense of impending doom spiced with an energizing optimism and informed by faith in the humanimal. Sound sources and instruments include voice, body sounds, field recordings, cello, violin, piano, electric bass, live performance recordings and dp’s organically growing bank of “hitting” sounds, culled from recordings of whips, punches, slaps, smacks, slamming doors and windows, hammered chairs and tables and objects flying about and breaking. a careful playfulness with rhythmical structures, as hinted at on 'rise', is further pursued.
