ILYICH: »Grounded Outer Space People«
ILYICH is a semi-fictional space pilot exploring holistic, inner-spatial dimensions through sound, rhythm and visual art. The journey aims towards the unifying collective spaces of the ecosystem, beyond the oppressive boundaries of the individual egosystem. For the first time, the futuristic music project will beam a crew to our planet for Pop-Kultur. »Grounded Outer Space People« is the manifestation of an improvised band who disperse themselves among the festival-goers, with various spaceship modules as a sound system, opening up a decentralised audio portal and listening network. Electronic music with soul and jazz influences, with narratives interwoven by ILYICH, welcome guests to take off into ego-free space. These people are down to earth and yet far out, imaginatively reflecting on what’s transpiring around them, or even just dancing mindlessly.
