Death to The Machine
Probing the man-machine interface at Sentralen 8 September: Norwegian artcore, radical Persian electronics and amped-up brass bands
Sote with Tarik Barri, Behrouz Pashaei & Arash Bolouri: Sacred Horror In Design is a new audio-visual project offering a rare glimpse into the underground world of electronic arts in Iran.
Former hardcore vocalist Torgny Amdam will be accompanied by the legendary confrontational artist Willibald Storn, now in his eighties, as well as vocalist Maria Due and others. He will occupy the interzone between a deconstructed rock concert, performance art, vocals and dance, with references to consumerism, sexuality, dreams and the future.
In an encounter between the Forsvarets Stabsmusikkorps and guitar innovator Stian Westerhus, Tod den maschinen reflects the growing struggles between human consciouness and artificial intelligence. This piece will express the conflict of automation versus human will, and merges ceremonial brass bands and innovative music making in a high-volume, high-energy 45 minute performance.
