Dasha Rush y su techno de vanguardia

Nacida en Moscú ha visto en el techno de vanguardia su punto de partida pero su trabajo se ha desarrollado en ocasiones lejos de la pista de baile.

Su reciente álbum, Sleepstep, para el prestigioso sello alemán raster-noton es un ejemplo de esto:  con pasajes de lecturas de textos “…que son transmisiones de ese estado entre el sueño y la vigilia”. Dasha dirige también su propio sello Fullpanda desde sus comienzos en el 2005, y realiza colaboraciones artísticas para danza y teatro, creando instalaciones sonoras y explorando los aspectos emocionales de la música electrónica. Al mismo tiempo está muy presente como DJ en el circuito internacional, recorriendo los mejores clubs y festivales. Antarctic Takt es un directo AV, desarrollado en colaboración con el artista visual Stanislav Glazov, a través del cual buscan retratar los rincones más remotos de la Antártida y nos invitan a una viaje sensorial hacia los amplios espacios abiertos y los ambientes gélidos del continente helado. Una marea de frecuencias cubiertas de escarcha y ritmos minimalistas nos hará flotar como icebergs hasta chocar con las rocas, generando un ambiente sonoro que nos hará imaginarnos perdidos en el espacio.

ENG: Dasha Rush is a Russian-born artist who sees the genre as a starting place, not a destination. She is a respected and well-traveled DJ and live performer, but her work is equally focused away from the dance floor, and sometimes away from the music itself. Combining her activities as a dj and techno producer on her Fullpanda imprint, which founded in 2005, with other multi-artistic collaborations alongside visual artists or dancers. Dasha brings up a mixture of rather rare electronic experimentation’s and synthesized sounds more akin to the brief movement of underground music the roots of such partially go back to the early 20th century and rise to significant Art Movements to this day. Her recent album for Raster-Noton, Sleepstep, could be a metaphor for her work: “These 16 pieces are transmissions from that state between sleep and wakefulness,” said Tony Naylor, a reflection of the in-between zones her music often inhabits. Dubby but intense, brutal but tender, foggy yet clearSleepstep was a wonderful mass of contradictions.

Sleepstep-Dasha-Rush

Not being one thing or the other is vitally important to Rush, which goes hand-in-hand with her strong independent streak. Dasha likes to push the boundaries of contemporary dance music to the limit, encourages experimentation with various musical (and non-musical) forms and assembling into a thoughtful composition and interaction between the media, like her recent audiovisual project named “Antarctic Takt”. Which was premiered at Atonal festival in 2014, following the presentations at Mutek Montreal 2015 or Volt Festival to name a few. Antarctic Takt is an Audio Visual performance with the collaboration of Russian visual artist Stanislav Glazov. With this performance the artist will represent the remote recesses of the Antarctic. The listener will be proposed an Abstract visit to the vast open space and cold ambiance of Antarctic continent. Intense ice-filled frequencies and subtracting like iceberg rhythms bounce from undulated outcrops relaying to acoustics so foreign-one may just be stranded in space.
