Plutonic Love Songs started as an after-hours studio experiment, where two fairly up-tempo recorded performances were broken down into individual tracks and their playback speed manipulated before being put back together. The reference point for the speed manipulation was the difference in planetary RPM between Earth and Pluto, hence all tracks were slowed down by 670%. The pop structure of the original performances was preserved, with liberties only taken in the mixing and panning of the tracks. The experiment yielded two long-form pieces that were epic in sheer size, dense in texture, yet intimate in sound.
The Plutonic Wall Of Sound was born and for its public unveiling OOHS! collaborated with artist Silvana Ilieva, who created two one-shot films that suggest the vastness of space or the intricacies of a molecular landscape, to accompany the musical pieces. Ascension is one of them. The Plutonic Love Songs A/V installation ran at Æther Art Space, Sofia, between June 29 and July 5, 2018.
