Danse Macabre (Dark Metal Baroque)

Danse Macabre (Dark Metal Baroque)

Danse Macabre (Dark Metal Baroque) unfurls whirling Baroque choreographies of life and death, invention, extraction, rejuvenation, exploitation, deterioration and obsolescence. The morbid pieces included in the program dance in the pestilent fumes of madness, folding together algorithmic and procedural transformations, incongruous details, overflowing streaming media, shrieking skeletons, dissonant sounds, perspective distortions and fast tempos.
