Sixteen tracks in 21 minutes, loud and tight: that’s Remap, debut LP for art punk four piece Volta, from Novara, Italy. Songs like splinters, splinters of a hammered mirror, still reflecting and vibrating noise, post-hc, screamo (especially their demo ɒ), crushed through fierce drumming, synths, punching bass, and a visceral guitar demanding and controlling chaos, plus, male vocals. Remap your dance style: do dance over these splinters, bare feet. Somehow they bring me back to Putiferio, Lucertulas and latest Afraid! (hey, no need to cite someone abroad): a different nervation, still, nerves in the same leaf, captured in a restless fall, driven by violent wind swirls. Take 353rd, Super Isovist, particularly dizzying, as well as the 28 (yes, twenty-eight) seconds of Open. Breathlessly fresh, solid and never disappointing in its massive load. Differently, Drive-in Classes take an hypnotic slowdown, the eye of the cyclone. And that’s a saxophone aching in Motown Ed. Fully enjoyable, fully loaded with bitterness. Your daily dose of oxygen.
Qatsi bitter. A superlative, brainiac, visionary soundtrack. What is society? Civilization?
"Koyaanisqatsi (English pronunciation: /koʊjɑːnɪsˈkɑːtsiː/), also known as Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance, is a 1982 American experimental film directed by Godfrey Reggio with music composed by Philip Glass and cinematography by Ron Fricke. [..] The film also defines the word as "crazy life", "life in turmoil", "life disintegrating", and "a state of life that calls for another way of living"" [wiki]
A nomen omen title for the plot. That good.
"Reggio stated that the Qatsi films are intended to simply create an experience and that "it is up [to] the viewer to take for himself/herself what it is that [the film] means."" [wiki]
A 2010 episode of The Simpsons, Stealing First Base, features a parody Itchy & Scratchy film entitled Koyannis-Scratchy: Death out of Balance.
