The Moment Just
Not So New
After reissuing Stanislav Tolkachev’s masterpiece Blue Mood, the Intergalactic Research Institute for Sound comes back with two fresh pieces from Georgian artists Zesknel and Irakli.
Following a strong start with დე / DE – Sounds From Georgia, this new record explores a more abstract electronic music.
Zesknel, who is a resident of the renowned Bassiani Club, collaborates here with Irakli on two dreamy and airy soundscapes which aspire to depict and recreate the atmosphere of the Georgian capital. To do so, they asked for the help of Rezo Glonti who proceeded to make field-recordings in Tbilisi. This work served as a base in order to create something unique and true to the city.
The project is part of a sound installation which aims to blend architecture with sound. The idea of the two artists was to conceive a space where they could translate the spirit of Tbilisi. Inside that space will be found works exhibited by other Georgian artists. And this is all part of the exhibition “Lara Protects Me. Eine Georgische Erzählung” at the Museum Angewante Kunst Frankfurt (opening September 20).
“In the institute, a question has become an obsession.
Lara protects me. What does it mean?
And who is this Lara? Volatile like ethylene, the answer is a chimaera.
With our sounds that will resonate
Inside this one chamber.
We hope you’ll vibrate,
And maybe find an answer.“
Irakli – “Reclaim Your City Podcast 079”
Zesknel – “Boiler Room Live Set”
