RE#SISTER - RE#SISTANT BODIES
The first physical album by RE#SISTER, and what an extraordinary one! RE#SISTER is a community evolving around the electronic music studio at WORM in Rotterdam, encouraging female and non-binary people of all ages to experiment with sound. For RE#SISTANT BODIES, twelve members teamed up, to play together and to work on a unique design which you can see here. The size of the package is that of a 7″ single. The necklace contains a USB stick with the complete album (12 tracks, 2 hours of music!), graphic artwork and lots of pictures of the making process. The artwork and liner notes were printed on 13 cards.
On the album you will hear various approaches to music-making, from solos to small group collaborations, whether composed, improvised, or both, and even a conceptual sound art piece.
This beautiful wearable album will look good on you, or on anything! It was designed by RE#SISTER member Johana Molina and completely hand-made. Materials: stainless steel wire and hand-painted papier maché, containing the USB-stick. The resistor as an electronic component is an obvious choice for RE#SISTER: they are about sisterhood and resistance, a protest against power mechanisms in the music industry.
The makers were: Lucija Gregov, Mariëtte Groot, Ginger Haasbroek, Tig Harutyunyan, Tisa Neža Herlec, Suzana Lașcu, Johana Molina, Johanna Monk, Vanita Monk, Linda Nijboer, Marty Ydema and Mojca Zupančič. You can listen here on the RE#SISTER Bandcamp page, and even choose to just get the digital album there.
Developed and recorded at WORM’s electronic music studio and De Nieuwe Ruimte, both in Rotterdam. Financial support came from Stichting Droom en Daad.
