Robin Storey With Mystified- Grasslands Dream Of Electric Sheep [treetrunk 381]

Grasslands Dream of Electric Sheep / Sound installation by Robin Storey with Mystified / Exhibition at loop30 – the listening room at the abraxas arts centre, Augsburg, Germany, November 2017–July 2018 / Grasslands Dream of Electric Sheep is a dense, atmospheric sound sculpture by Robin Storey (UK) with Mystified (US). Musician and visual artist Robin Storey (b. 1955) has been a seminal figure in the development of experimental sound culture since the early 1980s, both as co-founder of legendary post-industrial band Zoviet France and with his ongoing solo releases as Rapoon. By contrasting harmonic sheets of sound with hissing, “polluted” noises, Grasslands Dream of Electric Sheep evokes the sonic image of a natural landscape that gradually disappears or rather gets disfigured by industrialisation, buildings, and environmental pollution. This meditation on change is well suited for the exhibition at “loop30 – the listening room at the abraxas arts centre”: Until the 1930s, the site of today’s arts centre was a pasture which had to make way for the barrack buildings of the German fascists.
