Museoteatro della Commenda di Prè piazza della Commenda - 16126 Genova
free entry
start h 17,00

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/alb…/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.

Upgrade/compare. Armata di nanotecnologia all'avanguardia l'intelligenza artificiale risolverà tutti i problemi del mondo. Share/upgrade. Armata di nanotecnologia all'avanguardia l'intelligenza artificiale risolverà tutti i problemi del mondo. Compare/share/upgrade/upgrade. Compare/compare/upgrade. C'è una domanda ancora che rimane senza risposta: su quanto potremo spingerci oltre e rimanere ancora umani. Mentre ci fondiamo con le macchine (e io credo che ciò sarà inevitabile) ci trasformeremo in qualcosa di nuovo; mentre la tecnologia diventa ampiamente superiore a noi la piccola parte che sarà ancora umana diventerà sempre più piccola fino a essere del tutto trascurabile. Quando la nanobiotecnologia si sarà impiantata fermamente in noi sarà facile aggiornare o declassare chiunque e qualsiasi cosa in ogni modo. When nanobiotechnology will be firmly implanted in us will be easy to upgrade or downgrade anyone and anything anyway.

"Like a Dervish" is my killer Digital 45 of the year on Bandcamp (https://armeniamusic.bandcamp.com/album/like-a-dervish). It anticipates the release of the album "We Are Still Machines" in 2017.
With "Like A Dervish" I wanted to experiment with my voice, creating something intense and shareable, very close to the song format. The ambience is strange, mysterious, with unexpected openings toward the light. Rhythm doesn't give breath and the whole comes close to something that could be defined as "alternative dance".
The text (which mentions the imaginary character Slender Man, the so-called "boogeyman") says:

I'm not your Slender Man
I live in a broken day
I'm not your Slender Man

I eat like a dervish
I drink like a dervish
I think like a dervish
And I live like a dervish
Like a dervish

I arranged the song in two versions. The second is named "Waving". It sways. Like true dervishes, of course. :-))
On Bandcamp 2 tracks ?. 1,98

"Like A Dervish" è il mio singolo killer dell'anno su Bandcamp (https://armeniamusic.bandcamp.com/album/like-a-dervish). Anticipa l'uscita dell'album "We Are Still Machines" nel 2017.
Con "Like A Dervish" volevo sperimentare con la mia voce, creando qualcosa di intenso e condivisibile, molto vicino al formato canzone. Il clima è strano, misterioso, con improvvise aperture verso la luce. Il ritmo concede poco respiro e l'insieme si avvicina a qualcosa che potrebbe essere definito come "alternative dance".
Il testo (che cita il personaggio immaginario Slender Man, il cosiddetto "uomo nero") recita:

I'm not your Slender Man
I live in a broken day
I'm not your Slender Man

I eat like a dervish
I drink like a dervish
I think like a dervish
And I live like a dervish
Like a dervish

Ho arrangiato il brano in due versioni. La seconda si chiama "Waving". Ondeggia. Come i veri dervisci, ovviamente. :-))
Su Bandcamp 2 tracce ?. 1,98
