Doug Aitken's epic, trainbound art event Station to Station pulled into its final destination last week, but Koreless, Ghostpoet and film director Alex Turvey are making sure that the boundary-pushing spirit of the "nomadic happening" chugs on. Supported by Levi's, whose Fall collection revolves around the idea of the modern frontier, the three creative talents are creating a multi-platform immersive experience in London that encompasses the fields of music, literature and visual art, as inspired by the question: "What moves you?"
Exploring the power of the natural world to move and inspire people to create, Koreless travelled to Snowdonia to collect field recordings, creating a track with Ghostpoet that digitises the earthly audio, layering the nature sounds under layers of distortion and synthesiers: so the snapping of twigs forms a twitchy baseline, while the cascade of a waterfall transforms into tumbling synths.
"Stepping outside your comfort zone is a huge element to the collaboration, I'm excited to see it come together," Koreless told us. Dazed has a short preview of the resulting track, which will be premiered at the live happening on 9 October alongside Alex Turvey's film, also shot on location in Snowdonia.
A Journey to the Modern Frontier takes place at the Oval Space in London on 9 October. You can apply for tickets here. levi.com/makeourmark/London
