Truth in Immersion / In a Paraventral Scale
For Elevate Festival 2019, Lee Gamble (UK) is transforming his material from “In A Paraventral Scale” into a 3D ambisonic piece which will be shown for the first time at Dom im Berg as part of the Hyperdub 15 programme in conjunction with ‘The Kunstuni Graz —Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics’.
Flush Real Pharynx is the title of sound designer/junglist/composer and DJ Lee Gamble’s new three-part album for Hyperdub. The triptychs’ sonic documentary loosely explores three stages of the ‘Semioblitz’ – the aggressive onslaught of visual & sonic stimuli of contemporary cities & virtual spaces.
The first part of the series – In a Paraventral Scale – zooms in on the seductive/destructive nature of present-day reality through a symbolic prism inhabited by snakes, vehicles and mirages. Gamble exposes a new type of digital theater, a unique and futuristic filmic world blurring the distinction between non-musical sound, music and dance floor, a push and pull between reality and fictional worlds. All sonics co-exist in an unreal place whose spatial and temporal location is left for us to assemble.
“In A Paraventral Scale” is out on Friday, 1st February. It will be performed at Forum Stadtpark (18:00) and Dom im Berg (23:00) at Elevate Festival, 1 March 2019 in Graz, Austria.
