BASTET

LCC + PEDRO MAIA

Live AV

2017-2018

Bastet AV was a live audiovisual performance in collaboration with filmmaker Pedro Maia presenting LCC´s homonymous album released in 2017 on Editions Mego.

 

Bastet is a ritual study gliding the path from the rites of the ancient to the realm of the modern. Bastet is the name of the ancient Egyptian goddess closely linked to music and female power who coerced humans to entertain her in order to keep her untamed animalistic side in check. Whilst absorbing this legend the second LCC release presents itself as a vast canvas of ritual, restraint and spacious sonorities. Stark and unnerving Bastet is not reliant on pure electronics as abstract theatre but rather utilises these tools to conjure a world circling the spheres and planes of symbolic human activity.

The show was presented at Berlin Atonal, Barbican London and Sonar Festival among others.
