*100 copies limited edition* "Utsnobi Matriarkaluri Tomis Simgherebi" is an improvisational cycle recorded by musicians Darja Kazimira and Zura Makharadze during the filming of the experimental, analogue film "Rue de la Lune" by the Irish director Juana Robles, dedicated to the comprehension of one matriarchal generation, embraced by the tendency to painful transformation and self-absorption, striving throughout the performance to get out of these boundaries, heal and to reborn. In this act, the musicians were also characters and all the music written for the film was created precisely at the moment of the live performance documented by the director in Tbilisi, in the studio house where the authors of this cycle live and work. In particular, we performed a bodily performance that unfolded on the ruins of the Karmir monastery, which can be seen directly in the film.
The performance and music in “Rue de la Lune” was captured in improvisational performances by Ambra Gatto Bergamasco, Sonia Ntova, Maximilian le Cain, Angelica Santander, Darja-Kazimira Zimina and Zura Makharadze, integrating their current or relevant art practice, localities and daily lives. The six artists represent in Rue de la Lune the Healer, the Widow, the Lover, the Jester and the Artist in a female household out of space and time going through dreamlike healing processes in desperate attempts to liberate themselves from subconscious dynamics that span multiple generations.
Instruments used in recording: voices, dissected tuba, suona, zurna, bass rebeck, double bass ģiga, rebab, chuniri, gongs, bass drum, dissected tom, daf, bones, xylophone, metal and wood percussion, wood sticks, homemade noisy things and a lot of random surfaces.
