Perform and Surrender
Silicone Records (SR011)
December 4, 2020
Perform and Surrender, is the result of a series of performances presented between 2018 and 2019 in Copenhagen, Vienna, Helsingør, Munich, Montreal, Toronto, St. Petersburg, Tromsø and Nantes.
The series of presentations was later adapted to a full-length album backed by poem recitations. Here, Rezanejad's aim is the distillation of each city, jacketed in the appetites of its spectators.
“On the day of performance, I wrote small scores, bits of stage direction, or themes of half-lit phantoms to activate the set. The performances became special to each space, each contributing a fragment to the record’s whole.”
