Xerox Exotique #082: Remetemen – Gergely Pápai – 28.11.23

In relation to Remetemen‘s music, we cannot talk about dreams, feelings, clouds and other virtual things. At the beginning of the ’90s, he started playing music simultaneously in the punk and traditional folk music scenes. This created his musical education… For 20 years now, he has been working as a hermit in electronic music. He works with many different styles, likes to mix different elements, or rather wade through them. His concerts are characterized by a lot of improvisation and an ever-changing setup. It never repeats itself…

Gergely Pápai films present a slow journey or floating above familiar landscapes that are impossible to connect with on a tangible level, yet emotionally we become entangled with the unfolding visuals and the deeper layers they conceal. It’s a drifting between not-too-close and not-too-far, an unusual pace of contemplation, an analysis of the impact and reflection on our own city or living environment, on its landscapes and nature, and on its effects on us—ourselves—providing an opportunity for experiencing or contemplating upon it, all through these two slow films.
The films are silent films, accompanied by sound/music utilizing a plethora of devices. Analog synthesizers, random structures, gritty audio textures, emerging and dissipating soundscapes. This live-act experiment will attempt to tame an uncontrollably complex system, often generating interferences or happy accidents.
