Calvin Carrier / Over-time
A YouTube comment on Kraftwerk’s song The Model says it quite well: ‘listening to early electronic music is like listening to a brighter future that never happened’. I have always wished for music to exist as more than just sound. A song is 3 minutes of music, but it’s also: dancing, space travel, badness, love, conversations, listening, sitting, faces, new planets, fiction, impossibility, all brought to reality by sound and storytelling.
In over-time Calvin Carrier explores his desire to create a song that could dance and speak for itself. Navigating through and conversing with Applicant (1961), a text by Harold Pinter, Room 29 by Jarvis Cocker & Chilly Gonzales and his fictional collaborator Chumprolo, who shares with him his poetry, original music and movement phrases.
