WIRECUTTER with Lara Alarcón + RHIZOPHORA
LARA ALARCÓN (https://lara-alarcon.bandcamp.com/): vocal art & noise, deconstructed beatbox, chorale pop fantasy
Her work as a vocalist/composer is based on the performativity of the instrument in prosthetic dialectics.
Gloriously wretched stuff, Berlin improv duo with Micha Hoppe on the drums and Sid Werner on the diddley bow. Hoppe’s drums sounding like they are being beaten out of shape and Werner’s endlessly deep squall evoking some form of primal flatulence, as if the Earth itself groaned from a case of irritable bowels.
Michael Hoppe and Sidney Werner’s walls of sound stand so tall and strong that they themselves can’t even surmount them. As Werner describes the music: “Extremely slow, extremely loud, extremely ornate, and extremely minimalist!” Practically everything else is self-explanatory. “Extremely massive” might come to mind as well.
