The Anti-Post-Primitives by Anna Stereopoulou

‘An Art Response to the Era of Live & Virtual Streaming’

Sound Installation commission by
ohrenhoch, der Geräuschladen‘ sound gallery
Sundays 9 / 16 / 23 / 30 MAY 2021 | 2pm – 9pm

The Anti-Post-Primitives are people who are inspired both by the Past and the Future, and they love both Nature and Technology. They combat Noise and spread their message for Substantial Communication and Contact, encouraging the use of human Brain, Senses and Psyche. Sometimes, they meet and perform their rituals in the forest, at the coast, on a rooftop, or even in a basement. They recently travelled to Berlin, to make peace with ohrenhoch, the famous Noise Shop, where they can be heard from Underground, on Sundays 9, 16, 23 and 30 MAY 2021 (2pm – 9pm).

The Anti-Post-Primitives is a term invented by composer Anna Stereopoulou and her same-titled poem inspiring her latest AV ArtWork, titled ‘WATCH LIVE‘ (February 2021).
The present Sound Work is an audio meditation of Social-Cultural & Ecological character, and of Tribal, Techno, Sound Art and Spoken style, mostly consisting of Beats and Voice, interpreting the poem itself.
It is a dialogue between different Opposite ends in an eternal weaving towards Unity [Heraclitus].
In other words, it is a ritual performed by Acoustic and Electronic musical instruments, building up in an in-between succession that accompanies the poem, as recitated by machine generated Voice (Poem’s part 1) and Morse Code (Poem’s part 2).
In parallel, the chosen Sounds demonstrate the evolution of the Drum and different means of Human Communication, from Antiquity to Present times and via Acoustic – Analogue – Digital mediums. It is a work that praises the Past and envisions a brighter Future, whilst, at the same time, it draws our attention to the Present situation of fast-and-easy, yet insubstantial communication, as Cancelled and Masked by Noise; i.e. an overload of misleading information and social restrictions.
