MountGrove

MountGrove Modulation by Zander Porter, featuring Ashkan Sepahvand and his texts When the body seems destined to experimentation and Everything I know about technocapitalism, I learned at Berghain.

MountGrove is a quantum, intra-psychic environment where post-work and post-body imaginaries conflate as a feeling, an atmosphere, and a rendered world. Our techno-devices are hollow, their presence ethereal, and their relevance amusing, ironic, or even uplifting. Literally, we are lifted up by them; softly floating surveillance cameras are our new standing blocks for slow techno dancing. Water rises but poses no mortal threat.

 

Excerpts from writings When the body seems destined to experimentation and Everything I know about technocapitalism, I learned at Berghain by Ashkan Sepahvand are vocalized into and as MountGrove, a forever in-progress rendering. A distorted affect conjured by the human voice saturates an otherwise posthuman, post-physical landscape, where sociality and sexuality are pictured as interspecies-alien and extra-human.
