The digital body: Vulnerable, unstable but also frozen. M O U T H T R I P serves as a flowing force dragging you beneath its digital skin, into the medium itself. We experience a series of heterogeneous transitions through moments that never quite settle down. This exploratory trip is lead by an uninterrupted flight in a dense environment reminiscent of video game cut scenes which blocks all input from the player and force them to witness the events. As a powerless observer, we pull back in the digital wild life as the shell morphs into a crystalline aberration. The soundtrack from the album of the same name by KAGAMI Smile on BLCR Laboratories is a chaotic trip through an organic microcosm: the human body. This abstract, post footwork sound collage superposes saturated digital manipulations of looping samples resulting in a feeling of anxiety along a double presence surrounding us.
