Nightmares & Fairy Tales For The End Of Times
Beginning with an ending...
The album NIGHTMARES & FAIRY TALES FOR THE END OF TIMES follows a journey through inner and outer spaces in a post-apocalyptic world.
/ Resisting prescriptive story-telling MILA CHIRAL invites all listeners to envision innumerable tales by following the undertones comprised of past and future. Pure energy leads to prospective actions and an unwillingness to be understood by the sophisticated mind.
/ Accidental encounters and archetypical narratives are caught in the moment and questioned immediately through utopian and dystopian reflections.
/Existential depths in the unforeseeable back and forth backwaters attempt to catch, with traumatic intensity, a way to cope - a way to belong, again, where ever it might be possible.
/ Non-linear pathways, loops through circuitous patterns in pursuit of unknown territory between life and death exploring history and drafted future possibilities.
/ Ending with an open question, which might be another beginning.
/ The underlying oscillations through times are only visible from far away.
The album is connected to a video project with 14 videos by the following digital visual & dance / performance artists, which will be presented following the release:
