CARES – “LUCID”

“Lucid” is about “brain chemistry, waking dreams and societal collapse”. If you follow each hyperlink in the press release you will find diagrams, wave forms and a phd thesis on theories of wholesale societal collapse. The Canadian experimental artist certainly uses these images to great effect in a sort of Hypernormalization meets Powaqqatsi collection of images and digital debris. Underscoring these effecting images is Care’s deeply unsettling electronic score. Half-parts dark-ambient lurking, half-parts startling fried-circuit power electronics. It hits with the same unexpected gravitas as a Ben Frost noise freak out punctuating a beautiful landscape.
