Electric Unconscious is an alchemical process powered by the physicality of performers and the amplification of their sound and breath. The music rubs together opposing concepts and emotions: sacred and profane, corny and raw, fear and bliss. In these charged-up liminal and kaleidoscopic zones, a refrigerator is transformed into the archetype of energy.

An immersive sound experience with a twist.

Premiered at Kunstraum Walcheturm, Zürich (CH), (22-24.6.2023).

Commission by Kollektiv International Totem
This project is supported by SSHRC, Stadt Zürich, Kanton Zürich and Fondation Nicati-de Luze.
