Zoviet France - The Tables Are Turning 2xLP
Label: Vinyl On Demand
On The Tables Are Turning the duo of Ben Ponton and Mark Warren present a studio version of their live soundtrack to Designer Body, a contemporary dance production by Ballet Lorent. Ballet Lorent's 2009 production featured dancers on revolving plinths. At first fully dressed with hats, scarves and full make up as the performance progresses they continuously remove their clothing until they are naked. It's a transformation where the dancers remove all items of artifice until they are unadorned and in their natural state - another form of designer body. The specially commissioned score by :zoviet*france: accentuates the performance with a powerfully atmospheric score featuring the sounds of music boxes and run-off grooves amidst synths, drones and rhythms.
