Damir Bartol Indoš & Tanja Vrvilo: Sampledelia in the Night of the Living Dead
The third cosmophonic performance of the House of Extreme Music Theatre and Trobec’s bread ovens has besieged the armoured sampledelia "Lonely Nights", Matoš's sampled title enclosed in quotation marks just waiting to take its revenge.
A sampled cut that, according to Izidor’s definition, indicates the rhythm of the breathing of meaning, where the voice has fallen silent, where the breath is absent, there is a tiny sign. The myth of the sample is a myth of the spooky work of the dead.
The sampledelia of the myth of the dead besieges the armoured shachtophone instrumentation, two armoured quadro-rombo trombones, two riveted accordion-melodicas, a chained harmonium-melodica, a crucified double-neck guitar-bass, a hidden legacy of loved ones and strangers, abandoned or sold, driven by the intensities of the emotions of living bodies. Body parts penetrate from the mutating octagonal phono-averse installation, dead instruments with which they share life with the tactics of the crazy zombies of the schizophonic age. The pestilential reflections are disembodied from the outside and the inside. Speech is disintegrated by sampling.
