DeForrest Brown, Jr. is presenting a mixed media proposal for Lorem Ipsum in a distance work with the space developed for the occasion. Likewise, armed with drums, a laptop and visual elements, RRUCCULLA's fit is based on her very unique approach to polyrhythmics and boxes, as well as her fine synesthetic sense of image and sound.

DeForrest Brown, Jr. is a North American theorist, journalist, and curator (he describes himself as an ex-American) whose work spans theoretical research, writing, curating and artistic production. Brown, Jr. explores the links between the black experience in industrial work systems and black innovation in electronic music. He also claims artistic expressions such as techno for blackness from different fronts, including the Make Techno Black Again campaign, which celebrates the origins of this style of electronic music, its roots and the experience of the African-American working class. He expresses himself musically as Speaker Music, a proposal with which he extends his interest in hybrid media and proposes building bridges between private space and public space. In 2020 he released the album Black Nationalist Sonic Weaponry (Planet Mu) and in 2021 he will publish the book Assembling a Black Counter Culture (Primary Information), a general history of techno focused on the black experience.

RRUCCULLA, alias Izaskun González, shares her synesthetic and kinaesthetic experience of sound. Movement and gesture are strongly anchored to the rhythmic in her musical proposal, whether through her mastery and enjoyment of drumming or the polyrhythmics that she shoots out through the computer (using self-designed programs). Free jazz, echoes of rave music and all kinds of unexpected samples make up a sonorous composition in the encounter and collapse of both flows, completed and accompanied by her visual and image-based work, which is exhibited live and also on the covers of her works. Rhythm that moves and is seen.
