Program

Brothers Christian and Fredrik Wallumrød take the criticised concept of machine fetishism to new extremes. The duo’s sound is aggressive, contrasting with the trend in electronic music toward repetitive, symmetrical patterns, mainly based on loops. Brutter works on arrhythmias, hence bringing dance to a standstill through our clumsy bodies’ awareness of irregularities in the division of time. Through the use of sound, the spotlight is turned on human beings’ tendency to seek symmetry, an inclination so often questioned in the visual arts. Similarly, there is also a breakaway from any expectations relating to the instruments that they work with: the percussion is mechanical and the synthesiser avoids more “electric” sounds, creating a backdrop in which disintegrating rhythmic patterns achieve discursive continuity. Electronic sound is not used to complement the percussion’s expected rhythms, either harmonically or through melody. Instead, one instrument’s possibilities merge with those of the other, at times leading to interplay and, at other times, to interruptions.
