Drum Set Situations are a series of video loop compositions by R/A, constructed to disrupt any form of auditory or visual continuity in the performances. Each situation conjures up a specific method for fracturing the musicality within the performance and manifests a dialogue surrounding the schisms between utopian and dystopian impulses. The performers oscillate between conflict/struggle and cooperation/exhaustion. Harmonies rise and collapse throughout, highlighting the difficulty of composing anything "new" in an hyper-saturated media world where compression of materials and ideologies lead to a unique feeling of disorientation, rupture, and endless copies.
