Discombobulated troglodyte Bonehead – Smash – Bird
PRODUCTION DATE: 2017
DURATION: 3min 37sec
The video performance is about the artist, who plays a concrete cube in a domestic surrounding which is actually his home. He plays it as a drummer. He does this by the means of moving the object out of the room. Even if it doesn’t seem like it, he finds himself vibrating it by playing a rhythm, a drum part from an unknown, imaginary, non-existent, made up band “Discombobulated troglodyte” from the album “Morning warble”. The song is “Bonehead – Smash – Bird”.
