IMMERSIVE 3D AUDIO LIVE

what's on

'INTERO', inspired of the album ‘83% INVISIBLE’, taken form as an artistic creation project, it draws on various researches in sound therapy, and relationships between sound and body sensory information.

Using an immersive audio 3D experience combined with specific sounds, the music can alter the consciousness of corporeality as substance, unifying inner and proprioceptive qualities. This immersion leads to a consciousness of totality, beyond our body limits, a supernatural art. The performance 'INTERO' conveys to the idea that there’s no distinction between human and nature, in fact Human IS Nature; 'INTERO' evokes ideas related to our future and lays bridges between art, nature and prospective sciences.
En français,
Bien que prenant la forme d'un projet artistique, 'INTERO' s'appuie sur des recherches sur la sonothérapie, plus précisément les effets sono-somesthésiques (son et sensations du corps) et cénesthésiques (sentiment d'être).
Par l'expérience immersive sonore en 3D et l'utilisation de sons spécifiques, la musique peut modifier la conscience de la corporéité en tant que substance, elle unifie des qualités intérieures et proprioceptives. Cette immersion aboutit à une conscience de l'entièreté, du tout, au delà du corps, un art du supernaturel.
Ce projet  amène l'idée qu'il n'y a pas l'homme et la nature, mais que l'homme est aussi la nature ; il  porte des idées qui touchent à notre devenir et créent une équation passionnante entre les arts, la nature et les sciences prospectives.
By means of the sound spatialization, snakes move and whistle on the walls, tigers run to the four corners of the room, it rains, we are caught in an earthquake...

The artist don't use these elements as minor events or to lead the narration, but they are strongly integrate as core musical elements.

The performance takes place in complete darkness in order to facilitate the immersion which will be experienced as unusual ; a disruption of perceptions like a wild life process, not only primitive, psychological but also technological because of the efficient sound design. Senses are fooled and tricked... thereby technology becomes as nature, a liberating environment instead of a binding one.
En français,

Par le biais de la spatialisation sonore, des serpents se déplacent et sifflent sur les murs, des tigres courent aux 4 coins de la pièce, il pleut, on est prit dans un tremblement de terre... L’artiste n’utilise pas seulement ces éléments sonores issus du réel comme des événements anecdotiques, ni même seulement pour servir la narration mais les intègre avec force en tant qu’éléments musicaux à part entière.
Le live se déroule dans le noir afin de faciliter l'immersion qui est vécue comme quelque chose d'inhabituel, un bouleversement des perceptions, ainsi se déroule un processus de vie sauvage, non seulement primitif, psychologique, physiologique mais aussi technologique car le sound design opère avec efficience. Les sens sont trompés, la technologie ainsi devient au même titre que la nature, un environnement libérateur et non plus contraignant.


With ‘83% Invisible’, Kruger creates a living document of such an event. A convergence of ideas situated across art, nature, technology, and science, where ‘wildlife unfolds’.

INTERO - LIVE PERFORMANCES

Traversing sound design, binaural 3D sound for radio documentaries (as part of the collective Les connexions oubliées) as well as electronic and electroacoustic composition, Natali Kruger work is influenced by animist philosophy, shamanistic knowledge, and the practice of ‘sound massage’ pioneered by Peter Hess.
September 2020, '83% INVISIBLE' album has been released on 180g black vinyl with a silkscreen printed matt black cover.

REVIEWS

August 2020, THE WIRE MAGAZINE - Below The Radar 34 - Track 6 "La Reine Noir"
83% Invisible is a profound reflection on her research, extending her thematic scope by focalising the relationship between sound, the corporeal, consciousness and the natural world. Aiming to mirror the perception of natural sounds as a living 3D environment, Kruger creates an enveloping sound world.

 “Abstracted techno” occupies Natali Kruger‘s 83% Invisible, a deep excursion in which sound design is as important as beats and voices play a textural role.

DISCOGRAPHY

Natali Kruger releases have left a mark on the territory of quality IDM, electronica and techno artists that still live on.
Her debut album ‘Selkie’, released on the Schematic label (Richard Devine, Crash Course in Science) - set up by Warp affiliates Phoenecia - fused elements of IDM, acid and industrial in an ‘absorbing, all-encompassing slab of surreal electro’ (Igloo Mag)
On ‘siis’, her next release, this time for Leipzig / Amsterdam based imprint Doumen Records, Kruger expanded upon these foundations with a four-track EP of mesmeric, heavily abstracted techno.
Kruger’s work since has been dedicated to a sound research project focused on altered states of consciousness - especially trance states - and their subsequent therapeutic and creative value.

CITATIONS

Natali Kruger malaxe les basses fréquences, fait palpiter le flux sanguin et calme nos battements de coeur, apportant à nos sens profonds une sensation de retour à la nature, auréolé de magie et de fantasmagorie, de poésie et de mystère, de danse et de réflexion. Hypnotique.
Les fans de Coil et de Psychic TV, ainsi que les amateurs du Côté Sombre du très estimable label Warp et de field recordings (comme en enregistre Chris Watson) se sentiront chez eux sur cet album de celle que l’on connut “sur la scène bruxelloise” sous le pseudonyme de Baby Kruger.
