Después (After), a party that took place at Can Serrat, El Bruc, Catalonia, Spain. January 2018.
You don’t need anything to dance
A sensation (your body being your’s).
And that space is still revolutionary to me
It shouldn’t be, but it is.
Después (After) was a gathering of bodies within a cave, on a temporary but well-versed dance floor. This particular cave rests in the shadow of Montserrat mountain, a range that is made up of pink conglomerate, a form of sedimentary rock.
The Montserrat range has long been regarded as a sacred and spiritualistic place, here the partition between this world and that of others feels much thinner here, the possibility to think and hear differently presents itself.
The sound became louder and louder and a strong and vibrant echo filled the mountain.
The conglomerate catches the noise from a distance car stereo system. And the suggestion of a soundtrack and the idea of a party presents itself.
A party happens.
Soundtracks were made in collaboration, the field recordings of these findings, mixes from memories, hauntology, spectres, phantoms, and being part of a moving crowd.
Soundtrack and Mixes
