Stepping onto MUTEK's stage with her upcoming sonic odyssey, "Four Pillars," Moon Apple embarks on a profound exploration. Inspired by the timeless divination method of Asian astrology known as "The Four Pillars of Destiny," her performance delves into the paradox of fatalism and agency by questioning astrological animals of an elemental nature: how dare they have the audacity to cement the human condition into fatalistic stone structures. The ancient resonance of Panasiatic instruments is reborn through Moon Apple's lens, resampled, refracted and reimagined as modern tribal soundscapes.
With FOUR PILLARS, Montréal-based Moon Apple offers a sound ceremony - summoning these arbitrary arbiters of fate - partly to lash out, partly to seek compromise. Along with guests Dédé Chen (writer, performer) and Ahreum Lee (multimedia artist, musician), she will address the elemental arbiters of fate, as she weaves manipulated samples through creative circuitry and digital signal processing, creating glitchy ritualistic rhythms that embraces both delicate and powerful.
