Tellavision // Dance Divine
TELLAVISION (Bureau B)
“You can’t walk on water / but you can swim in it / the coast is clear / add land from here”: A slow, slightly erratic pulse ripples underneath Tellavision’s voice as she sings – evoking the fears which paralyze us, the fears which inspire us. Magnetic fields crackle over a sharply contoured yet dimly lit beat on “Add Land”, the new Tellavision album. It doesn’t take much for her voice to shine. If the brushstrokes used to paint these sonic images are kept to a minimum, their vibrant energy oscillates like nothing else in pop. “Add Land”, the fourth Tellavision album, is a rigorous exercise in musical reduction,reaching new levels of intricacy and virtuosity which prove to be warmer and more
touching than ever.
For a decade Tellavision has been one of our most exciting sonic inventors, carving out her own inimitable style through her previous three albums, two EPs and countless tracks. New music abstractions echo against a backdrop of old Krautrock mechanicalmotorik rhythms, allied to the physically gripping immediacy of techno and noise. Her concerts have consistently been nothing less than spectacular: she has sung and sampled beats from every imaginable and unimaginable variety of live percussion instruments; a loop station virtuoso, an engineer of a technically crafted musical “i“ in which the innate and the alien mirror one another ad infinitum.
Once again, Tellavision has written and recorded all of the songs herself. She was joined on production by Thies Mynther, better known to us as one half of the Phantom/Ghost duo, who met Tellavision through one of her more recent theatrical works. For the “Add Land” album tour, Tellavision will use a band formation, with drums, bass and synthesizers creating a framework for her voice: a collective effort with an element of theatrical installations: pop as avant-garde and social sculpture, but most of all as pop.
Tellavision has never sounded so immediate, so confident, so very much in the
moment. This is her finest album to date: “Drop utopia, / drop dystopia, / it’s all here.”
As a hybrid foetus of pluridisciplinary arts, she spins on the counterpoint between party culture and queer neovisions, with spontano desire to synthesize sounds in duckosmose you are plugged in. In June 2018 she released her first self-produced LP ‘Cake Space Great Again'. Inspired by spiritual spheres Dance Divine guides confusion to a healing process of the soul, giving birth to immaterial fruits; in other terms, she outcomes on an emotional and sensitive voice design to reveal personal spin & speed of the spectators. Dance Divine changes musical set ups like she's changes hair colour, often and for the best.
