Ya l’Aïon Agartha is a study on interfaces as transformative contact zones where hallucination is an operating modality in order to generate hybrid human-machine entities. The mutation of the performative body through its electrical, electronic, sonic and textual mediations generates a score in real time which is deployed in various ways for the four movements of the piece. In the first movement, an electronically transduced saturated voice is the textual oracle for the lyrics sung during the second movement which become the score for fetishistic performative actions in the third and fourth movements. These existential performative rituals stimulate various analog and digital machines in order to produce sonic mutations of these actions from which proliferates a computer language which is heard over the market of the center of the earth.
