Organizers of the wonderful annual Rewire festival in The Hague will release their first ever LP release next month. Remotely Together drops June 2.
It features three pieces, all of which were commissioned for a virtual edition of the festival in 2021. The lineup:
- claire rousay & Morita Vargas – Humo De Margatina Dulce
- Maria Chavez & Valentina Magaletti – Particle
- KMRU – MicroVerse
The recordings are edited versions of the original live performances. From the release notes: “In the midst of COVID-19 lockdowns, Rewire initiated these collaborations between disparate artists from all over the world, connecting them remotely to explore new creative practices both online and in isolation. The audiovisual results of these residencies were presented during the online edition of the 2021 festival.”
