Abiboss is a Noise musician based in Neryungri, Russia. Neryungri is a town in the far east of Russia, with temperatures reaching -50°C in the winter. Due to it's intense climate, rough surrounding terrain, and lack of connecting infrastructure to other major cities within Russia, all of which are at great distances, Neryungri is greatly isolated from the rest of the world, entailing very little outside influence.
Within such an intense climate and without the stimulation of fellow musicians around her, Abiboss makes music reaching far beyond melody and rhythm, resulting in sonic extremes. Her music reaches the limits of one's audible bearings to become an overwhelming abstract expression of herself, and arguably of the elements she has to coexist with on a daily basis.
About the series: No View, The Radio
The arts are taking a break. Theaters, museums, concert halls and galleries are closed. To a large extent, the art that is so desperately needed right now is inaccessible. Imagine being quarantined at home without films, without books, without music.
Though we may not access the art, we can still think about it. The enforced rupture of this isolation can also be an opportune moment to reflect on and from, the arts. Every Friday for the upcoming weeks we will showcase original musical works by different artists, selected by Alex Andropoulos.
