‘Excerpt From An Atypical Brain’ is a 13 minute scroll thru bleakly inclement electronics and field recordings, pieced together by Dis Fig as partial score for Chinese performance artist Tianzhuo Chen
“"This (music) is taken from the piece’s most suspenseful climax, where a psychological twist turns into a violent murder scene. The main character sings a final love song to her husband before she slaughters him, over and over again, until he is finally destroyed and her mind can rest in the bloodbath."
'An Atypical Brain Damage' is the latest 90-minute performance piece by China's Tianzhuo Chen, in which a delusive world is created through the fusion of techno culture, queer aesthetics, and social media horror stories to surrealist folk-stories by Chinese avant-garde fiction writer, Can Xue. These tales play with communist ideology while referencing American living and dreaming, all within themes of existential struggle.”
