ferociously independent, underground based, I'm a free artist
Arode is an artist who mainly works with musical performance. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, Arode seduces the listener into a world of ongoing equilibrium and the interval that articulates the stream of emotional events. Moments are depicted that only exist to punctuate the human drama in order to clarify our existence and to find poetic meaning in everyday life.
Her performances never shows the complete structure. This results in the fact that the artist can easily imagine an own interpretation without being hindered by the historical reality. In a search for new methods to ‘read the wave's sound’, she tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.
Her works sometimes radiate a cold and latent violence. At times, disconcerting beauty emerges. The inherent auditive seductiveness, along with the conciseness of the sounds, further complicates the reception of their manifold layers of meaning. By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language, she wants to amplify the astonishment of the dancer by creating compositions or settings that generate tranquil poetic images that leave traces and balances on the edge of recognition and alienation.
Her works are often about contact with darkness and basic nature elements. Energy (heat, light, water), space and landscape are examined in less obvious ways and sometimes developed in intense ways. By emphasizing bass aesthetics, she focuses on the idea of ‘sounding space’ and more specifically on spaces where anyone can dance or not at any given moment: the non-dancing space, the techno owned space, space that is musically liberating.
Her works appear as dreamlike images in which fiction and reality meet, well-known tropes merge, meanings shift, past and present fuse. Time and memory always play a key role.
