snoodbearg Eine Wackelkontakt-Performance überschreitet die Grenzen des Erwartbaren und bisher Erfahrenen. Wackelkontakt zu beschreiben überschreitet die Möglichkeiten des geschriebenen Textes. Zwischendurch scheint es angeraten das Konzert kurz zu verlassen um epileptischen Anfällen vorzubeugen. Verstörend, wahnsinnig, außerordentlich gut.

about

WACKELKONTAKT is an A/V project by the Jerusalem based collective and ephemeral conceptual umbrella organization named Excessive Productions, consisting of Tomer Damsky, Eyal Lally Bitton and Marco Milevski.

Sound, light and space serve the collective as raw materials to create objects which manipulate spectatorship and criticize themselves and the rest. By an aesthetics of excess, multiplicity, intensity and deconstruction, the three examine extreme physical driving forces and their impact on the spectator experience. The state between being addicted to pop and consumption cultures and existential anxiety is the groundwork for the ensemble’s compositions, which are derived from the gaps and interactions in the immediate environment, intersecting cultural inspirations, symbolization and appropriation and mixing Patronizing Exoticism, Post-Orientalism, Psychotrap and Noise textures.

In a WACKELKONTAKT live show the audience confronts a brutal audiovisual flood that acts on all senses, and has to decide whether to struggle or let the body immerse in the experience. The presence of the light and the image steals the spectator's awareness, as the thicket of smoke and frequencies moves the viscera and proves the existence of the body.

In their debut EP the group presents a sequence of songs whose lyrics are based both on quotes of twentieth-century philosophy idols ranked as a hypsterized bible and on Mediterranean pop songs that deal with the basic ingredients of life itself, integrating individual depression with a global political questioning of the right to exist.

Track Name: Zchut Kium
כולם יודעים את זה
ואף אחד לא אומר לי
ההתנהגות שלי זוועה
בושה להיות אני
לא יוצאת מהמיטה
לא יוצאת מהמיטה

לא יוצאת מהמיטה
לא ברור איך אני חיה עם עצמי
חיה עם עצמי
כולם יודעים את זה
אבל אף אחד לא אומר לי
לא אומר לי

אין לי זכות קיום

I propose that we histori-
Size it and treat it not as a
matter for peaceful settlements

Under the terms of some all em-
bracing theory of the signs but
as a struggle that carries the
Fundumental contraditions

THE POINT THEN IS NOT TO HEAL THE SPLIT
BETWEEN WORDS AND IMAGES
BUT TO SEE WHAT INTERESTS AND POWERS IT SERVES

[W.J.T Mitchell]
