we are opposite like that – Vinyl
Himali Singh Soin
‘we are opposite like that’ is an ongoing series of interdisciplinary works that comprises fictional mythologies for the poles, told from the non-human perspective of an elder that has witnessed deep time: the ice.
Pairing poetry and archival material, this track recounts the tale of the omnipresent anxiety in Victorian England of an imminent glacial epoch. The disorienting fear of an invasive periphery sent shudders through the colonial enterprise, the tremors of which can be felt in contemporary times. An alien figure traverses the blank, oblivious whiteness, and undergoes an Ovidian transformation into glimmering ice.
The vinyl ‘we are opposite like that’ will be released towards the end of 2021. It features the original score performed by the Krystallos Quartet as well as ‘Subcontinentment’, which reflects on the potentiality of South Asian Futurism to anti-chronicle the geopoetic links between the poles and the subcontinent. The vinyl includes a limited edition print designed by Cecilia Serafini, comprising imagery and poetry from ‘we are opposite like that’.
