An intimate intersection between modern music, contemporary dance, modular synthesis and film.
Step into a unique convergence of expression and sensory experience as modular synthesist David Castellani is joined by contemporary dancer AnnMarie Arcuri in guiding you through a captivating creative journey.
Dissolving the familiar confines of modern music and dance, Hysteria Dichotic is paired with beautiful cinematography that envelops the viewer into a visceral experience.
This is Castellani’s first collaboration with AnnMarie Arcuri. Their creation is physics in motion, as the dancer becomes a visual depiction of the electronic music making process, flowing to represent the transfer of electricity to kinetic energy.
David Castellani is an aficionado in all things modular. Since 2021, he runs his own label Noetic, which cultivates the creation of smart and dynamic techno with a focus on synthesizers and analog hardware. The label has homed seven releases from Castellani so far, featuring remixes from Redshape, Matrixxman, Voiski and Etapp Kyle.
