CD – Low Impedance
Silent architectures, barren urban landscapes, empty and corrupted spaces, a general dystopic vision of the future of our cities seems to pervade the inspired ‘Zeropolis’ project, made by The Missing Ensemble (Daniel De Los Santos, John Sellekaers and Mathias Delplanque). Skilled in manipulating drones and frequencies, the members of this combo underline in an abstract way the complex nature of transformations, with decaying sound structures and images, in the subliminal perception of hostile environments, then put into sounds, often gloomy and oppressive. Rot and decay reminiscent of ghostly visions, of a sense of majestic impotence, relegating us to the role of passive watchers of an already written story.
