Dislocation. Pair objectified bodies with emotion projected in lifeless objects. Combine industrial thumps with layers of ambiences. Watch a sound theme build, dislocate, rebuild, disengage. Use vocals out of context. Take on the ideas of alienation, objectification of roles, identities & gender, uproot interpretation, put it on display, exhibit. Dislocation in sound. Diverting from the traditional single-funnel electronic music format, Dislocation is a closed aesthetic universe. Dark, deep, cold and vibrant it takes forms as a multimedia art piece built around a distinct aesthetic. The project incorporates the 12"/digi release with a two-part video work (3-minute music video and a 5-screen exhibition version) and A/V live performances that blur the lines between a swerving raves and a stagnant exhibition. Dislocation in the concept. Based on a 3-hour sound piece Twwth originally composed for the similarly titled exhibition by visual artist Jesse Auersalo (known for his collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela, Roc Nation, RBMA etc.) at tastemaker gallery The Hole in New York City. Building on Auersalo's concepts: sex portrayed in objects, the interplay of cold-cut industrial design and intuitive, eerie blur. Dislocation for Twwth. Having arrived in the waning ebbs of dubstep--on its way of morphing from a uniform sound to the multifaceted representation of modern electronic music that the press chose to call post-dubstep--Twwth rose to international acclaim with 2011's Shawty on tastemaker DJ Oneman's 502 imprint. With subsequent releases on Ramp, Paris' Sound Pellegrino and establishing his own Signal Life imprint with Desto, Twwth has been continuing to redefine the boundaries of what modern raves could sound like. His latest outpour, Dislocation, offers exactly that, a dislocation of the musical themes he has been known for, spun into a darker, format free, concept-first universe.
