James Ferraro: Anno 6G CE
North American artist James Ferraro, that was at the beginning of what has been a series of new thought and stylistic movements in the field of music, presents a new audiovisual piece commissioned by maat. Anno 6G CE presents an exceptionally updated reading — as seen many times previously in Ferraro’s work — from an analysis of several layers of contemporaneity. The title, Anno 6G CE (as in Current Era), exercises a new way of measuring and of chronography, from telecommunication systems which have now started to overlap with other tactics, on an essentially theological basis.
Since the beginning of the 21st century James Ferraro has been working on visions which may often look futuristic, but are brilliant works of present-time syncretization, operating in a way that regularly gets to those results before… everyone else. So many ideas have flourished from his brilliant imagination that new genres and styles have risen from them, with their very own niche parallel socio-economic way of functioning. Nevertheless, Ferraro continues to do what he has always done — to think, to dream and to produce again. His work has been published in several well-known record labels — every new release of his ends up in every year-end list — and showcased in several important stages and museums, beyond his career in different music circuits known for being attentive to what is being done now.
Oracles is part of the Terra Irada [Angered Land] programme — focused on community music, curated by Pedro Gomes and showing at maat — that presents work by artists who, in their visionary island, are beyond culture, to the extent that they synthesise several ample heterogeneous readings on human experience, beyond the collective — and they came to the world to help us.
