Russian Mountains is an audiovisual performance that puts the musicians behind the wheel of an invention vehicle that tends to focus attention toward a common centrality, a unique source of light and sound. Born from the collaboration between the duo Barokthegreat and the Dutch musician Michiel Klein, the project reinterprets new media in a physical way, exalting the details of the gestures of craftsmanship and the mechanics of human movement, symmetry and perspective. Symbolism and geometry are remixed in an aesthetic of reverb.
