about

When Olivier Messiaen set out to transcribe birds' songs and employ them as models for his compositions, he couldn't have predicted that by now wild birds would have started to learn mobile phone ringtone patterns. For “A System of Objects”, RAUDIVE aka OLIVER HO maps an obliquely constructed world in which you lose all certainty of what is nature and what is design.

Raudive celebrates dance and auditory scenes as rituals, employing our surroundings as sources of ahistorical “found sound”: primitive technologies used to reach magickal states. A drum machine and
a wooden stick, a sawtooth-shaped electric current and a split rock all turn into empirical objects of the same class, without a definite past or a predictable future impact. We have become dependent on technology which we don't grasp beyond its display surface. Our statistics deceive us. Lost on reason, we are thrown back on the ritual to reveal the hidden relations of what surrounds us: the club as the emblematic center of the emancipated individual, longing to bond with equals, again.
