M.ELA_Q 2.0
M.ela_Q is an audio/visual performance, composed by Massi Frateschi. Its name is derived from the strong influence that the vaporwave cultural current has had on the artist. Every track recalls the dysfunctional act between the human being and the web and digital technology that surrounds them as a representation of the distortion resulting from their fusion.
Mela-Q or Ctrl-Alt-Canc / Del is indeed a combination of keys on the computer keyboard designed to perform closures or reboots in case of problems. The artist interprets this command as a deliberate act of a human being, of forcing a system to stop, reset or quit, taking the control of it.
As a stylistic trademark, the artist uses the sounds of the surrounding environment and of distortions from chemical reactions that they create and record. That’s why they call this genre of music " hi-fi and chemical”
