Wanda & Nova deViator: ARP 339

Music-dance performance ARP 339 is a sonogram of cyberfuturistic potentiality. Instead of being caught in a concert format, though reminiscent of it, ARP 339 springs from all directions at once. The performance is an attempt at constructing a utopian world that explores the decomposition of spatial limitations of the three-dimensional reality, introducing into it the elements of time and mental leaps. It raises epistemological questions that consider the way the world and society are perceived not through rational analysis, but through the register of emotions and corporeal impulses. Through emotional and corporeal understanding, ARP 339 addresses also political questions, not in the relations of dimensions that are known and normative on this planet, but in relation to the universe and potentiality. Whereas the abbreviation ARP (Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies) designates 338 galaxies, totally unique and spiral in form, ARP 339 is a yet undiscovered galaxy that proposes a different world, one in which it is possible to think about the undiscovered dimensions and nonnormative forms, wrapped up in a sonic vortex.

The upcoming album by Wanda & Nova deViator is a continuation of the duo's highly praised debut Pacification (Kamizdat, 2013). It takes us from progressive rhythms to a new sonic spectrum full of deep bass lines, repetitions, melodic vocals, broken rhythms, and texts, intensified by literary references William Gibson, cult science fiction writer, and Ursula K. Le Guin, the author of the novel The Dispossessed. A sonogram of potentiality ARP 339, accompanying the concert performance of the same title, is charged with sensual and emotional passion.
