The sessions of Tutu are odes to life, between pure adrenaline and the most innocent curiosity. Like windows that open to horizons both near and far, her sets run through the landscape with the same intensity that she lives other creative facets of her life. More than just a possible classification of styles - that range from bass house to cosmic trance, abstract grime, schizophrenic tribalism, acid techno and various experiments - Tutu on the decks can go from underground dance to the most experimental sounds, which direct the feet and brain to maintain the brain occupied and sensations that run skin deep.
On this occasion Gemma Planell presents A volar! (Let's fly!), her first installation, in which she mixes sounds and trampolines. With the adrenaline characteristic of all her projects, Tutu brings to a close a year of adventures inviting everyone to fly in the Atrium at MACBA.
Gemma Planell has performed under the Tutu pseudonym for a number of years, always displaying exquisite taste and personality, with her DJ sets putting into practice her idea of storytelling. Preferring to remain out the spotlight and away from media attention, she has forged a personal style heard in clubs and festivals, with online recordings of sets and mixes for radios and magazines that demonstrate her unique talents.
While there are ideas about psychological and emotional developmental processes held within the sculptures I make, the things themselves are actual physical explorations into thinking, feeling, communicating and relating.
