_ 1. unfamiliar body
_2. body of immigrant
_3. an object that has come into something else, usually by accident, and should not be in it
There are people who are not integrated into society, not only in their own country where they were born, but also in a foreign country where they stay. They are hidden, unprotected and stateless.
Historically and recently, there are always people who search for the land where they can stay safely. From diaspora till immigrant, there are always foreign bodies who stands on other´s land.
A pure body describes their / our journey how they / we come, where they / we stand, about their / our instability in a metaphorical realism. A body moves from unfamiliar to familiar, from abstract to realistic, from hidden to open.
Through electronic sound-scape and field recordings, the music creates unfamiliar surroundings, disharmonious ambiance and follows the path of the movements.
