The production of Collapsus took place from the end of 2019 until the beginning of 2022. Ironically, its initial proposal placed it in the “ambient carbonic techno” genre.
About twenty electronic sequences were created using modular synthesizers or audio software (Max msp, Voltage modular, VCV rack, etc.). These were sent to a dozen of artists: musicians or/and authors, who volunteered to participate in the project. They responded by sending in contributions made in their own workspace. Others came along for the recordings.
Started just a few weeks before the explosion of the pandemic, during these two years of gestation, the project was of course affected and questioned by these events. During this complex and depressing period, the initial conceptual framework, centered on collapse and an ironic-derisory imagination, evolved without disappearing. A refocusing and a certain redefinition have taken place.
However, many of the initial elements have survived, including:
– production by calling on multiple and varied collaborations
– the multiplicity of forms of finalization (audio CD, videos, «site album», download spaces, etc.)
– the desire not to adopt a strictly experimental and “underground” positioning or, at the very least, to explore more equivocal boundaries.
