OCTOPUSSY at home.
The following text has been written, looking down from the balcony onto a usually quite lively square in front of the station, and looking out for modes of exchange and collaboration despite staying at home during these current times. OCTOPUSSY thinks that sharing interests is existential for survival, and gives some observations from being on tour, and exchange with hosts and friend musicians.
While reading the text, this track can accompany you. It was recorded on May 30, 2020, on the balcony, listening to music of those musician friends, whose tours OCTOPUSSY was organizing and retracing in 2017, and with whom OCTOPUSSY has been collaborating since, sharing interests. While writing the text, OCTOPUSSY was remembering some of the paths they have crossed since 2016.
1. Ohtakekohhan, “TxY” from the album “Vortex”, released in 2016, Tokyo, Japan.
2. Così e Così, “Hourglass” from the album “Impermanence In The Time Of Heavens“, released in 2017, Montréal, Canada.
3. Fullruhm, Techno, unreleased, 2020, Berlin, Germany.
