Ivy Barkakati – Follón

jwb

 

Ivy Barkakati, sound artist from Barcelona, just released her new track “Follón”.

(We recently discovered her work through this track)

We liked how this track is playing with the dual concept of chaos/organization.

Each sound fragments contributes to this rhythmic noise atmosphere, in which the listener is naturally challenging  his ways of understanding ‘what is going on’.

This track made us think about how medias lately have been using the “information” to disinform and create more fear among societies. The act of watching the news has become such a painful activity but at the same time a necessity because of our  natural desire of being informed..
