Dasha Rush & Stanislav Glasov

Dasha Rush & Stanislav Glasov (RU)

Over the last decade, Russian-born electronic wanderer Dasha Ptitsyna Van Celst has self released the bulk of her conceptual production – part ambient, part techno, all impervious to quick and dirty labeling. The ambitious experimentalist cut her teeth with multidisciplinary live sets at gallery exhibitions and theatre performances, while also toying with the boundaries of gabber at venues in Paris, London and Japan. She released her first two albums of fragmented, synthesized compositions on her own labels – the techno minded Fullpanda and its more soundscape prone sublabel, Hunger to Create. Appreciated by peers for her minimalist melodies, thick atmospheres and industrial bass lines, she released a pair of EPs on Adam X’s esteemed Sonic Groove in 2010 and 2011, which paved the way for Sleepstep – Sonar Poems for My Sleepless Friends (2015), her third full-length collection of dreamlike, downtempo micro-collages for Raster Noton. For her MUTEK debut, Rush will present Antarctic Takt, a monochromatic A/V performance that takes us to the remote recesses of the southernmost continent by way of abstracted ambience. In collaboration with videographer Stanislav Glazov, Rush churns out intense, ice filled frequencies that convey the sparse landscape’s isolation, chilling spellbound patrons to the bone. Dasha Rush is represented by Berlin Current, a CTM Festival-led initiative funded by Musicboard Berlin that aims to identify and support emerging sounds from the city. This Audio/Visual performance will be developed especially for Atonal festival with collaboration of Russian visual artist Stanislav Glazov.

WHO: Russian born, Berlin-based French citizen Dasha Rush, and Russian born, Berlin-based Stanislav Glasov (aka PRCDRL)
WHAT: Transparent multiscreen audiovisual performance exploring poetic implications of black holes.
MORE: Development support for this project was provided by The Banff Centre in 2016 as part of the Convergence: Electronic Music + Visual Arts Residency; Dasha is also performing a solo live set at the festival this year
MUTEKs: Montréal: 2015 with Antarctic Takt; Mexico: 2015

Constantly searching for new mediums to express ineffable emotions and concepts, and working within the evolving language and codes of audiovisual performance, Dasha Rush once again teams up with co-conspirator and visual artist Stanislav Glasov.

Always concerned with creating narrative and evoking poetic effects, yet mindful of not letting the (technological) means overwhelm the ends, Rush lends her cinematic and emotive sound design and compositional sense. Glasov’s background is in computer graphics, visual effects, installation work, film production and software development – the basis of his Licht.Pfad Studio and his A/V creations as producer and performer PRCDRL.

As with last year’s Antarctic Takt, the duo’s monochromatic and abstract exploration of the most remote continent on the planet, Dark Hearts of Space takes an interest in remoteness, but of a more galactic type. This layered screen production investigates the metaphor and mystery of the phenomenon of black holes; the gravitational effects from which no particles, sound or light can escape; visualizations of electromagnetic radiation and vibrations that characterize the vacuum of space, a place in which sound itself struggles to exist.

Developed at the Banff Centre for the Arts as part of their Electronic Music and Visual Arts Residency, MUTEK is pleased to co-present the world premiere of Dark Hearts of Space.

Presented in collaboration with the Banff Centre.
