Fritzia Irízar’s practice reflects on the psychological, economic, and symbolic conditions of value. On par with big tobacco and big alcohol, the sugar industry invests heavily in fictions and sleights-of-hand to downplay the life-threatening realities of their product. White Chameleon / HFCS presents first a proof of production – the literal machinery of a sugar refinery – and symbolic measures of worth as antidotes to the shadowy machinations of capital. Irízar punctuates this backdrop of machinery and evidence with the low tones of a bassoon, resonating inside the body as the ultimate site of resistance.

Jogjakarta’s Senyawa embodies the aural elements of traditional Indonesian music whilst exploring the framework of experimental music practice, pushing the boundaries of both traditions. Their music strikes a perfect balance between their avant-garde influences and cultural heritage to create truly contemporary Indonesian new music.
