The most intense and darkest rhythms will be present in LEV 2016 by Paul Jebanasam & Tarik Barri, one of the most fascinating projects at the moment, on the edge between the dark ambient, metal and industrial music.
Paul Jebanasam, besides being one of the persons responsible for the label Subtext, is one of the most interesting creators on experimental sound nowa- days. His impressive new work, Continuum, emerges as a crystallised vision deploying sound to explore the spectrum of life, power and energy present in the universe. The compositions adopt the central premise of mirroring celestial events or cellular behaviour, fusing these with a defiant tonal grandeur and an ever present sense of chaos.
Tarik Barri is responsible for providing image to this audiovisual experiment. He is also the mastermind behind this praised visual compositions by Thom Yorke, Atoms for Peace, Nicolas Jaar o Monolake.
Paul Jebanasam and Tarik Barri’s Continuum show was as sonically impressive as well as visually astounding and it supposed a personal universe whose aim is examining whether the conditions that support life and the digital and atomic mechanisms that surround it can continue to work together as one ecology in the face of dynamic and unpredictable change.
