Language Burier uses collage elements, both audio and visual, to mimic the complex collection of voices that combine to shape an individual’s understanding of self and existence. (click individual songs to see visual collage art.)
13 musical compositions created by Alan Goffinski each explore different elements of this theme. Art collective Know No Stranger and Alan Goffinski have curated a collection of 13 visual collages from diverse mixed media artists. Each collage accompanies a musical composition and shares its title with the musical composition.
The lyrical compositions of Language Burier scrutinize the influence of a wide range of voices - family, friends, religious figures, cults, nation states and the broader zeitgeist - as they apply to the formation of one’s worldview. Language Burier attempts to uncomfortably confront the disorientation associated with an honest examination of one’s beliefs.
The musical compositions of Language Burier integrate a collage of audio samples appropriated from both popular and independent music. These sampled sounds have often been incorporated in an altered manner, so as to emulate the inherent role of personal interpretation in the process of forming one’s worldview.
The visual compositions of Language Burier further the collage motif by utilizing mixed media methods to create companion pieces corresponding with musical compositions. Each paired visual piece and musical composition create a diptych offering a broader examination of the theme.
