We are thrilled to bring you the premiere of the Cut Tongues & Golden Ratio Syrup ‘A Screaming Comes Across the Sky’ film. Golden Ratio Syrup’s project up until now has been anonymous, but today via Noisey, it was announced that the project is the work of Planet Mu / Mad Decent affiliated producer Rudi Zygadlo! You can read the whole article here.
The artists had this to say about the project.
“This is a highly personal project. The three of us have spent a lot of time together, listening to chamber music and taking certain mind exploding chemicals. The idea to collaborate came from that psychotropic period. We (Cut Tongues) were greatly inspired by Rudi’s piece of music. Our starting point was the piano sequence. Its painfully slow tempo connoted an image of laborious and aimless struggle. We then began to look into Erik Satie, who is explicitly referenced in the composition. Satie was an eccentric, to say the least: he claimed to only eat white food, kept two grand pianos stacked on top of each other, one for storage, and once sentenced himself to death in a letter to a Parisian newspaper. His sense of carnival and penchant for games inspired a whole series of invented sports, a Breugelian human landscape if you will. This is the central idea for the film: life as a meaningless sport with an arbitrary set of rules. And yet we must throw ourselves into it with joyous abandon.” – Cut Tongues & Golden Ratio Syrup
