Relax & Sleep

The DVD-R and VHS roman duo, The Away Team, releases its surreal masterpiece

  • Text by Riccardo Lionello

Cleaning is important, there isn't a grandmother in the world who has not said that at least a dozen times! We live in a dirty world, and disorder is right around the corner, so can I suggest a tool to balance the day, to bring equilibrium to our stressed our minds?

The brilliant, art-led DVD-R and VHS label Sturmundrugs releases the AA.VV. (that romans crazy guys) masterpiece, "Relax & Sleep", with five chapters for five different levels of head cleansing intensity. With an aural accompaniment ranging from deep, blurry techno beats to oceans of mellow,
ethereal synth drones, this is a 20 minute audio-visual pastiche of visual confabulations. There are fragments of old public service ads and airline commercials, making their way through noise and acid colours dripping from fuzzy TV logos, and finally, an elusive figure through a mist of luminous clouds. The message is clear - relax and sleep.

This Friday, December 2, at the launch event hosted by K Party, AA.VV. will be presented in its entirity.
