Iku presents her debut longform work "Fugue: Some Temporal Patterns Other Than the Forward March" on Genot Centre. The listener might imagine theirself in a teenage bedroom, suddenly realizing their frame of reference is arbitrary, surrounded by a vast, unknown space that is neither inside or outside. On closer inspection, the familiar objects that inhabit the room seem made of alien materials. Sometimes, a familiar sound appears, but there is something uncanny; how much of this sound memory is real? Using inventive, associative sampling a new vocabulary arises, an intimate trompe l'oreille, an impossible object where components blend, their boundaries becoming fuzzy - where it is no longer clear where one object ends and another one begins.
"Fugue" is a multi-component musing on recursive timelines, non-linear appearances and knotted self-modifying patterns. The construction and internal logic is suggestive of the never-ending process of correction, necessitated by the realisation that one-time lucid narratives turn out to be pure falsifications in retrospect. About an eternal unfolding, a continuous new creation of new spaces, new frames, new rooms to make sense of new realisations and contradictions, in her words a "repetition ~ leading back to its own beginning, initiating its own interruption, its own standstill. Immanent and intrinsic becoming, simultaneously frightening and comforting ~ a cheerful failure."
