Rhythm and movement around you.
Your nose sensing the smell of sweat.
A hairy arm, or a leg, touching you.
Did you notice anything? the officer asked.
Where did you wear your wallet? the officer asked.
You never know what happens in the dark.
You could get fucked in the dark.
That's why you go into the dark.
music for darkrooms mix #1
Music for darkrooms is a mix series dedicated to these red lit rooms where body interaction is processed. It is Mikrodisko’s invitation to sound the depth, dim the gravity and space the freedom of the dark. We believe in acoustic penetration as an act of humanity.
The first mix of Music for darkrooms comes from Tom Pascalis. It was recorded at Hot Club Zürich, Switzerland in October, 2018. Here, in the Werkstatt at Koch Areal the darkroom for the first time ever at Hot Club turned into a separate floor with a DJ line up all night long. The title “Take Off Your Masc And Show Me Your Heart” refers to the topic of the event, which explored the phenomenon of “hypermasculinity” on poetic, aesthetic and audio/visual ways.
For Tom, poly|motion resident DJ at ://about blank Berlin, the minus 8 pitch-down of conventional turntables is far from enough. Besides filling dark floors with his slowed-down sets, he works on light objects on other days. His favourite cruising spot is the public park in the dark.
