Programme Note:
“…the immediate experience of the world, its perceptible pleasure has been totally exhausted to the extent that by now everything is filtered, mediated, distorted by technology…Romitelli insisted that art could not resist technological violence other than through a response that was even more violent and artificial.” -Interview: Plouvier about Romitelli*thank you to Martin Bédard, Dennis Patrick, Graham Banfield, and Evan Bowen for their invaluable assistance with the electronics in this piece.
