Masterfully filmed and edited by Kurtz Frausun, DALLAS WAR DANCE is a document (limited to 70 hand numbered copies) of a live performance by three very distinct American post-industrial artists in Dallas, Texas, USA in January 2015.
DAVID E. WILLIAMS headlines as a cabaret-style solo act (with assistance from Jane Elizabeth of Tesco USA, Erin Powell of Awen and The Muskets, and Katrin Powell of Awen). Virtually a revue of his 30 years crafting wickedly demented chamber pop, Williams’ surprisingly raw set runs the gamut from the surgical pornography of “The Curious Pediatrician” to the devastating grief of “Here Comes the Cold Narrator” to the historical satire of “Hymn to the Genius of Idi Amin.” He also performs Muskets-favorite “The Ballad of the Green Mountain Boys” in a militant rendition with the Powells.
Featuring members of Awen and Void Prototype, DEFORM UNIFORM produces a kind of Industrial music that harkens back to the pioneers of the genre, with an emphasis on live improvisation, lyrically and musically incorporating contact microphones and physical hardware via effects processors and drum machines.
ORGULLO PRIMITIVO translates
into “Primitive Pride” or “Primitive Arrogance.” Stefan
Gonzalez’ describes his project as “experimental grindcore/noisecore/avant
garde/industrial/performance art for restless minds.” Through a
combination of traditional and non-traditional percussion, an array of pedals
and guttural vocal outbursts, he seeks to “exorcise the demons of (his) daily
life as well as bring to the forefront (his) ability to channel a
guttural echo from the underbelly of this Earth and within the universe
surrounding… a sense of meditative purpose which stretches the musical
concept into the territory of the ritualistic.”
