ATYPICAL TRADITIONS introduction
Presented by Discrepant Records
What happens when we re-evaluate the past? When, bound by no rules, we rewrite history, deconstruct clichés and reassemble preconceptions into a new and daring landscape?
Atypical Traditions is a series of concerts that aim to reconfigure our perception of history and traditional thinking to shape a brave new vision of the past, present and future. Taking a no-holds-barred attitude to the past and proposing a complete reinterpretation of the future, artists from different backgrounds and geographies (Portugal, Spain, US, UK) present new musical perceptions that try and find new meanings in an everchanging ultra-globalised society. In keeping with each evening’s theme — Visions at the End of the World, Lost Futures, 4th World Wonders and Do You Miss the Present? — two concerts per month (dates to be announced) develop this idea of alternative spaces in which visitors can travel and dream beyond the limits of comprehension.
Curated by Gonçalo F. Cardoso, the programme Atypical Traditions involves, in addition to the live performances, a series of playlists compiled from the Discrepant catalogue. These selections can be heard on the Sound Capsules, maat Mode's audio stations, and online, in a condensed version.
