The Field Rrcordings set uses raw and untreated recordings made in natural habitats in thailand, vietnam, indonesia, ecuador and
switzerland, of insects, amphibians, mammals, weather and other natural, non-human phenomena. individual tracks are layered and mixed into
a composition. no effects or manipulations of the sound sources are applied. this set evokes a force of nature and addresses the importance
of the insect world for human existence in the form of an accompanying text on a leaflet distributed in the audience at the end of the set.
Under the heading "Anthropocene (The Dark Abyss of Time)“, Anemone Tube explores the (unconscious) collective forces of humanity and its relation to (its) nature. With ritualistic chants, archaic rhythmic sounds and infernal abrasive noise, based on field-recordings made in China and Japan, and imagery of consumption-oriented modern society confronting with ancient mythological worlds, Anemone Tube transcends our worldly, material universe into an apocalyptic vision. A place of longing or a suicidal fantasy? In the search of itself mankind seems to find its real determination either in self-destruction or in a revival to a new life, detached from the varnish of civilisation, subordinate to nature and one with god.
