Stroboscopic Artefacts presents the Monad series. Rarefied and introspective, confrontational and extreme, each featured artist will delve into the Monad concept:
“The generation of number series is related to objects of geometry as well as cosmogony. From the Monad evolved the Dyad; from it numbers; from numbers, points; then lines, two-dimensional entities, three-dimensional entities, bodies, culminating in the four elements earth, water, fire and air, from which the rest of our world is built up.”
Tommy Four Seven’s Monad XIII is culled from the creased crevices of our fears and the depths of our desires. Speckled with references to gods of water and air, Sumerian mythology and long forgotten Roman citadels, what emerges is primal, powerful and expressed with utter precision. Pitched-down vocals mumble, broken beats saunter, and bass lines build urgently only to drop euphorically. Created with clarity and curiosity, it slants into your ear drum through the prism of the future as imagined by the past.
