This album is based on the performances in Moscow, St.-Petersburg and Yaroslavl, during the Russian tour organized by Monochrome Vision.
The concept of Stif(f)le is to create a virtual world based on the use of digital technology. Since first performance, nearly 25 years ago, progress has been made by P231 in creating and controlling the performance in a real time environment.
The equipment consists of a single laptop, connected through MIDI to an upper torso
exoskeleton and a data projector displaying the visual in sync with the sound feed.
Abolishing the instrument liberates the performer as motion sensors on the body
facilitate gesture found in dance or in sculpture.
The minimalist aspect of the performance makes the spectator closer to an altered state
of consciousness, a format used since the early sixties repetitive school of music to
include the public as part of the event as a cerebral feedback loop.
Handnumbered edition of 150 copies.
