ARMENIA - Electronic Live Set and Visual

Armenia, experimental electronic musician, so says about himself:
"As above so below. I realized: I'm an infiltrate in the world of machines and electronic music. Basic a subversive. I go towards man and everything is adjusted for this purpose in various ways and paths. I install a human virus and I go to the result. Then the machines, both software and hardware, begin to bend, to heat up and become alive. Sometimes it's surprising. Alchemical operation in my sight. The Wise commands. In the background the Child and the Doomsayer."
After traveling with the "IO È" show together with Kseij Dance Company, returning from Budapest, Armenia returns to Commenda in Genoa with his live accompanied by visuals. He brings the new restless studio album, WE ARE STILL MACHINES, preceded during spring by LIKE A DERVISH and published on Bandcamp (https://armeniamusic.bandcamp.com/album/we-are-still-machines). "Our true conscience can be, and in fact it's almost always, completely absent from all that we do, think, want and imagine ..."
In "ESPLORAZIONI" by DUPLEX RIDE, Armenia also pays tribute to Georges Ivanovič Gurdjieff, using frames of "Meetings with Remarkable Men", a movie released in 1979 written and directed by Peter Brook, taken from Gurdjieff's novel by the same name.

ARMENIA - Electronic Live Set and Visual

“Si può portare il bue assetato al fiume, ma, se non sarà lui a bere, morirà.
Cadi sette volte, rialzati otto volte.
Memory cluster. I miei ologrammi persistenti.
Solo chi ha il coraggio di scrivere la parola fine, può trovare la forza per scrivere la parola inizio.

Lo stelo del fiore, sapiente percepisce la bufera e si piega al suo arrivo.
C'ero soltanto. C'ero. Intorno cadeva la neve.
Sii come il bambù, fuori duro e compatto, dentro morbido e cavo. Le sue radici sono saldamente confitte nel terreno e si intrecciano con quelle di altre piante per rafforzarsi e sorreggersi a vicenda. Lo stelo si lascia investire liberamente dal vento e lungi dal resistergli si piega. Ciò che si piega è molto più difficile a spezzarsi.“
(Aforismi)

"Memory Cluster - Ologrammi persistenti"
Performance of electronic music and visual at the vernissage.

"FRAGILE / handle with care - 2nd Edition"
Collective contemporary art's exhibition curated by Benedetta Spagnuolo.
" Fragile – handle with care ", a radical extension of fragility's concept, which touches existential questions related to sensitivity, delicacy, human vulnerability and uncertainty, dilemmas and expectations.
This itinerary starts from here and it's not only expositive, but inner, concerning an introspective reflection about fragile and ephemeral, material human condition.

Within A RIDE IN WONDERLAND, festival curated by DUPLEX RIDE

Festival of electronic music and visuals for "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" by Duplex Ride.

"I can't explain MYSELF, I'm afraid, sir" said Alice, "because I'm not myself, you see."
Lewis Carroll was a shy stutterer man who felt uncomfortable with adults. His first book was "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" which was followed by "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There". From the latter the director John Henderson in 1998 conceived an artwork targeted to adults. In his film (included in some visuals during Armenia's concert) Alice is a teenager and all characters are humanized. Costumes and makeup fully reflect the style of the 90's.
It's the latest adventure of a teenage girl who now cannot escape to growth. She must therefore give up games, disobedience, fantasy, to devote herself to life as a wife and home's guardian. Also Carroll has to surrender to time, recognize his advanced age and give the last touching farewell to the girl who led him for a while out of social patterns and human logic. It seems infact that the White Knight who Alice meets is precisely the author, clumsy, full of tools he invented, old on his horse slowly drifting away on the horizon.
At the end the live electronic set will be also enriched by the video presence of the contemporary dance company Kseij Dance, with Alekseij Canepa's choreography for "Balance" that will close Armenia's live performance of his original electronic music, mostly taken from the outbound album "We Are Still Machines".

Within FRACTAL, festival curated by DUPLEX RIDE

Armenia in 2016 presents the new tracks from "We Are Still Machines", in the mark of a new integration man/machine/gesture/dance. For this reason he opened a few months ago a fortunate collaborative research along with dancer and choreographer Alekseij Canepa and his creature "Kseij Dance Company", a young female contemporary dance company which belongs to Studio Danza Alla Poilova. This will lead in Genoa on June 1, 2016 to the representation of " IO È " show's Italian premiere at "Teatro Rina e Gilberto Govi". Already born electronic tracks have been re-assembled around the performance of the young dancers and will go to compose the album's definitive material, which will be mixed probably in September 2016 and which will be released digitally for download and streaming on Bandcamp and on main online stores such as iTunes.
"Balance", "Like A Dervish" are some of the titles that will be presented as a preview.
While waiting in Sala Dogana Armenia will present for the first time ever part of the material, enriched with new visuals, in a colorful performance that will range from the most energized by rhythm tracks to the more obscure and introspective ones.

Within RETROFUTURI, festival curated by DUPLEX RIDE

When imagining the future was a dream.

WE ARE THE ENEMIES - NOI SIAMO I NEMICI
ARMENIA, with his experimental music and processed visuals, will approach an Orwellian future, currently disguised in a dystopian present and underlying theme of man's awareness and his mechanical nature.
The new album, "We are still machines", is undergoing advanced production. As above so below. We are still machines creating other machines.
"We are the enemies", which also contains small audio samples of the reciting voice of the Futurism's founder Marinetti, is the first track that will anticipate everything and will be presented in preview at the concert for the festival RETROFUTURI at WOLFSONIANA by DUPLEX RIDE. Together with the previous "Slave" with the voice of John F. Kennedy and "Facing the abyss" with the text of the speech by Bush after September 11, the new track will complete the concert's lineup with an electronic triptych trying to grab the doublethink of our Western society. "You are the task" and "My secret heart" will bring us back to the heart and a more human dimension.

Within REPARTO OVEST, festival of electronic music and visual by Duplex Ride

Armenia presents an electronic layered multi-level sound, in search of awareness and knowledge between instinct, emotion and mind. The inherited name ("Armenia") now looks like a destiny or an omen: his eyes and sensitivity connected to the most hidden East, bearing a versus narrative that counteracts the mainstream of today's society ("Facing The Abyss") and the enslavement of individuals and populations to needs that alienate their real nature ("Slave"), Armenia uses every modern tool to find and draw a line of energy capable of piercing and revealing the world ("A New Beginning").
Increasingly close to the realization of their nightmares and their own dark side the human machines must be restarted ("You are the task [Human machine needs rebooting]").
"We Are Machines" is today's new album in production after "A New Beginning", released in 2011 on iTunes.

Within DUPLEX RIDE, multimedia festival of electronic music and video

Armenia presents the new electronic live show based on tracks of "A New Beginning" and enriched for the occasion by new sound parts and for the first time by the live performance of "New Worldline" and two versions of "You Are The Task (Human Machine Needs Rebooting)", a track that saw its genesis on stage last year and reached the final elaboration, anticipating the new album in progress "We Are Machines".
Particular emphasis will be given to the visual, which will insist on a strong sync sound/image (particularly for "Facing The Abyss" special guest G. W. Bush) to increase suggestions and impressions and which will collect new videos, such as "Saving Energy", recently filmed on the Celtic pyramidal building located near Rovagnate (LC), IT.
