"performed and recorded live on stage in may 2019 by meira asher (voice, electronics), eran sachs (no-input mixer) and dave phillips (electronics, field recordings). part 2 of a trilogy released on cassette via rr.
this is a sound-text rendering of three cases, described and analysed by frantz fanon as they appear in his book ‘the wretched of the earth’ (1961). in it fanon deals with the problem of mental disorders born out of the national war of liberation waged by the algerian people.
rather than charging full steam ahead, this creation creeps slowly forward, letting both the psychological and physical horrors of fanon’s words echo in negative space.
“colonialism is a disease of reality itself. the disease as a condition rearranges reality according to distorted principles, which we find hard to understand to the core. from the cases that fanon presents and analyses in his book, we have extracted fragments that reflect these distortions.” meira asher and eran sachs.
