GALOBA | night 2

GALOBA is a performance that happened at night, and will be streamed at night. It started from 7 tones, 8 images. The sounds and images are inspired by Eastern lament songs and noise music that establish over a long time with a morphing and insisting penetration. A lamenting chant uses a very limited set of notes that through repetition of harmonic variations elevate into complex structures. The title "galoba", is the word for chant in Georgian. In Slavic the same root gives the name to seagull, and pigeon.

The main theme Milo Moje Zlato (direct translation "my beloved/dear gold" from Serbian) is seductive and obnoxious like the song of the sirens, it insists and then bangs and thrusts, always back again, to where you were at night.

*NOTE: The content occasionally uses flashing images and disturbing sounds to offer a journey in and out of daze.

For full experience keep lights off, be close to your screen and use external speakers.
