≈sheglitchr & Jinkstraüm [FR] – COMMUNION//DESTRUCTION
≈sheglitchr & Jinkstraüm want to conjugate our savoir-faire to celebrate massive video data-destruction and the rise of unholy post-musical sounds. The beauty is at peace, the angels are no longer desirables, thy kingdom is our now. We want to “lock-in” glitch worshippers inside a church where statues and stained-glass windows are in constant move and fusion, where the preacher’s voice becomes a primitive drone. Where death of the sacred is the rebirth of the magnificent.
We want to redefine the notions of exposure and value while destroying known symbols of beauty, luxury and success through a performance mixing pictures, movie references, adverts, symbolic sounds, Bible extracts, dirty analog tapes for both sound and video and incense.
Camille and Christian met through a friend network five years ago and immediately connected with each other across their similar taste in literature, music, experimental art, movies, bad humour and shared love for raccoons. They have always wanted to collaborate but have never found the right formula because of the distance between them. This event would be the quintessence of a long-standing project and a wonderful opportunity to bring them together in a common form.
≈sheglitchr joined the Glitch Art movement in 2015.
She destroys pictures to create new ones. Her favorite phrase: “CREATION FROM DESTRUCTION”. Inspired by the nascent and fractured nostalgia of a time she never knew, she draws her different energies from the music she listens to and from the experiences she makes. ≈sheglitchr
Jinkstraüm is a “one-man-band” headed by Christian aka Emet. At the beginning, it was all about tremolo-picking, down-tuning and immersive misanthropic fuzzy ambiance. Then,it became built less like classical music or songs to become something more organic and intuitive where sound leads the composition (did someone say “ambient?”). Basically, Jinkstraüm is a generator of sonic landscapes, sometimes quite noisy, sometimes quite moody. It’s all about a dude and his pedalboards helped with synths, voices, tape loops, radio, cat screaming in agony and/or guitars with weird tuning. It’s a constant live experience taking the form of an endless quest for fine textures and massive waves of sounds, traumatic rhythms or deep oceanic breath, but always with a certain sense of bad humour. Everything is based on experimentation. After few EPs, few split albums and an LP, Jinkstraüm is ready to play live and open for collaborations especially with non-musician artists/performers.
