Sometimes, Falling Through the 🅝🅔🅣


Granada Theater

We know,
there are known acquaintances.
There are things we know that we know.
We also know that
that there are known unknowns.
That is to say
we know there are certain things
that we don’t know.
But there are also unknown unknowns,
the ones we don’t know
we don’t know.

Generated from experimental virtual synthesizers – which will soon be commercially released -, Sometimes, Falling Through the 🅝🅔🅣    is a sound performance that leaves nothing to guess about its unpredictability – one of the characteristics of Osborne-Lanthier’s work. Musically, his compositions are inspired by such eclectic sources as grime, rap, noise, techno, ambient, contemporary classical, electronic and heavy metal, to create singular and strangely accessible sounds. Above all, Osborne-Lanthier works with the idea of intensity as if it were an immersive engagement tool. His music is tactile and stretchable, quickly moving from the strange valleys of EDM tropes to vast expanses of sincere choral synthesizers.
Created around the idea of “knowing / not knowing”, the piece presents itself as a mise en abîme of sound events, which are revealed and hidden at the same time – making sound as much data X as the initial equation can contain. And sometimes, even the first formula disappears.
