Atrium Obscurum Presents "RESISTRANCE"
Viva la Reistrance!
Write-up by: Sean Cook
The dancefloor held tightly to the subtle escape of light, holding for moments like a celestial blister in the vastness of space. The stirring vortex of dust and vibration hesitant in the midair weightlessness glides seamlessly between all bodies that, like the earth, moves as if on a feather. A murmuring frequency of the ground raises its voice. The brilliance of this darkness and its beauty reflect in the light that escapes. The beat continues, thick and breathing like a celestial birth, like designed chaos fulfilling its destiny. Bodies in motion with scientific precision. The murmur of the ground is now a war-cry. The beat a cadence. The void an army. The light escapes again…
In between this dancefloor that breathes light and the distance of stars that reflect the expanse of time, an unmistakable roar arises. A thunder of bodies moving like electrons to an atomic symphony that collapse the measurable barriers of universal truth and transcend beyond where light has dared to travel. A rumble within our core that expresses our time to unite in one movement, a movement that rejects the idea that we are not transcendent, a movement united in trance,
We are the ResisTrance!
