PREMIERE: e4444e performs ‘Suite’ from ‘Invisible Stone’ performance.
Following a successful flagship performance in Newcastle in February, e4444e, Skip Willcox and lovedavid are bringing their immersive collaborative arts performance, Invisible Stone to Sydney/Eora’s Seymour Centre on June 24th, with support from Flower Boy 卓颖贤. Today we are fortunate enough to premiering a vignette into the performance titled, ‘Suite’, which is out officially tomorrow.
Invisible Stone combines art, sound and dance to create a fully immersive visual and sonic experience, guiding the audience through a spacey journey through the unknown. lovedavid takes care of the creative direction, e4444e the sound design and Skip Willcox the choreography blending together to explore the interplay between the cosmic and the mundane.
‘Suite’ is a studio recording of a live track that was performed by e4444e at his performance as part of his Invisible Stone performance earlier this year. The track bends genres, textures and intensity in classic e4444e fashion. Ambient tones mould perfectly with the distorted vocal, reaching their evocative peak when combined with those haunting keys in the tracks latter third.
On ‘Suite’ and it’s distinct sentiment e4444e mentions, ‘To me things seem weak, slowly we will peak and I’ll know what to do with you: take our luck and split in two, Invisible Stone.’ lovedavid also commented on it’s importance to the performance, stating, ‘Suite stood out to me as a track that surmised the kind of feeling of Invisible Stone. Lyrically the idea of being ok with things feeling weak, waiting for the course of space/time to inform our understandings of life. In opposition to this idea that we have to know everything now, we have to quantify it and take stock of the things around us. It’s not about not listening or looking but instead shifting our approaches in observation and curiosity in order to allow for the world to do it’s perpetual shifting free from our attempts to hold it to yesterday states’
