SMETNJAK x JOHN MAUS

Ena ura, en sam plan, en monolog, črički (škržati?) in veter kot soundtrack, youtube posnetek na velikem platnu. Anti-spektakel, ki prej povleče na Johna Cagea, a ta pripada drugemu glasbenemu postopku resnice. John Maus o the old guys: »They are great and we should enter into a conversation with them, but they didn’t grow up watching E.T.« Zavest, vzgojena ob Živ Žavu in nato priklopljena na internet, požira le byte-size – 3-minutni komadi, članki kot slikanice, filmi brez tišine. Ko thrill popusti in zaslutimo napor, sežemo po miški ali daljincu. Kaj nas zagrabi v plitvinah koncentracije, med besnim, a bežnim procesiranjem podatkov in resetiranjem spomina? John Maus stavi na pop in spektakel: estetsko sublimnost robota, ki se dviga iz plamenov, kofeinsko maničnost zvoka, skompresirano v verz in refren. Radikalni potenciali popa. Smetnjakova metoda se postavi pred ogledalo.

Projekcija video intervjuja z Johnom Mausom: 22. november ob 20h @ Kiberpipa (kinodvorana), Kersnikova 6, Ljubljana. Vstopnine ni. Facebook event.
