Still (LP)

Label: Futura Resistenza

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

In stock

Efraín Rozas’ "Still" posed this question in the form of an installation made for quadraphonic sound, architecture and light. Still was first developed at Queenslab as part of a one-month residency with The Kitchen, New York City in April 2021. This album is a live, stereo room recording of Still as it was presented over three one-hour viewings.

"In the sound performance “Still” I confront the audience with an ontology of the non-quantifiable, through the union of space and time, and the re-integration of the senses."

"Have you noticed that Western music emphasises linear time? Melody is a continuous sequence of sounds. Harmony and rhythm follow a progression from beginning through climax and resolution. Is it possible to have an art that is based on non-linear time? Can we even experience non-linear time?" - Efraín Rozas
