alchimia organica | bauer | lucchese
The avant-garde movement in the arts, theatre, music, the study of voice and the interest in diverse cultures are the common subjects that link the two artists. In their outstanding performance we can witness a sort of an ‘rational inconsistency’, that it doesn’t try a synthesis between the extremes, but it exalts the contradictions instead, actually taking its dynamics from their tension.
The actions are instinctive, vibrant, dramatic, deep and charged with energy – from vocal virtuosity to brilliant ironic reflections – in a suspended and magic atmosphere of extemporaneous anarchy.
In ‘’Anthropology of the unconscious" we see them engaged individually and together in the realm of theater, musical avant-garde and improvisation: an hallucinatory excursion which takes the spectator on a sensual and emotional journey.
..."suspended and magic atmosphere of extemporaneous anarchy, and hallucinatory excursion, a cathartic esthetically experience", where listeners can suddenly catch a certain sense of humor and spiritual tension that often impetuously burst into lines such as on fifth and tenth tracks.
