We discovered Robin Buckley aka rkss with a set of free downloads edits of Eurodance tracks, and it was love at first sight, or first listen to be more accurate. Stretching, looping, grinding materials that built (consciously or not) our musical background, she gave a fresh, conceptual and funny twist to the plunderphonic legacy. If most of the music we’ve been listening in the recent years have been labelled « deconstructed » it may be rkss that took this deconstruction work the most seriously. Seated at the desk and projecting her Ableton screen during her live, using the most basic and recognizable sample packs available to produce her tracks, she’s questioning our relation to music production and the magical aura surrounding it.

This concert is held with the support of SHAPE platform.
