A musician from the 22nd century, nostalgic for the electro of the 2000s, has come to say that techno-industrial civilisation has collapsed to make way for Compost Collaps!
A world of overcycled waste where nuclear power stations, netflix and inequality have disappeared, but not rave parties.
Compost Collaps is a percussionist and his CC-220L, a homemade 100% recycled percussion-composer instrument, a pile of rubbish that heats up dancefloors, fuelled by one overriding motivation: the desire for electro music to exist and endure without electricity, techno without high-tech, rave parties without petrol. A can, some pipes, a few bits of metal, some sweat... and it worked!
Stéphane started learning percussion at the age of 6: he played in the local wind band, teenage punk-reggae-rock bands, hip-hop and cold-wave brass bands, became a DJ and tried his hand at producing techno with a computer. The discovery of DIY Music* enabled him to play, bringing together the exhilaration of percussion, the jubilation of techno-non-stop parties, and radical convictions such as this project: not using any machine to play techno; staging the waste products of industrial civilisation; feeding imaginations of a more sober and therefore less unjust world; wetting his shirt for the advent of a Compost-Collaps world.
