Live AV / 2020
Our audiovisual album ‘home’ is forthcoming later spring 2021. It can be seen as a sanctuary to escape in, and as an homage to daydreaming with unexpected departures from small details in your living room. That sense of surrender to the inevitability is palpable throughout the whole album: all the chapters have deliberately pragmatic titles to define the stationary place the music & visuals were conceived in.
‘Home’ is full of warm, lighthearted, almost naïve melodies - visually embraced by soothing natural worlds slowly evolving in the distance. In the performance at NXT Museum Acket and Rang have tried to introduce the world of ‘Home’ with a darker prequel. In the hour-long performance chemical reactions in Rang’s aquarium gave birth to eerie icey forests and abstract rock formations. Emerging from this world, we will slowly experience the first signs of what seems to be an organic world, ultimately leading up to what ‘Home’ is going to be.
