We float in an ocean of our thought We swim, so we do not feel a thing We dive in discussions without end We drown our decisions don't make sense Light flashing, car crashing People clashing, water splashing We drink from a cup that's never filled We sink, all our patience has been spilled Light flashing, car crashing People clashing, water splashing

The road is relentless The road continues out Your home is deserted Possessions spread around You've followed your instincts Her fears they did come true A map, navigation A message aimed for you The road is relentless Your home is deserted And you've followed your instincts When something goes missing When someone is missing The road is, the road is, the road is

I have been wondering Whether it's a trick And it's repeating Over and over and over I have been wandering All around this world It has been changing Over and over and over I have been travelling Far away from home But I keep returning Over and over and over So I have been wondering If it's all a trick That we've repeated Over and over and over again

If you would find enough reason to get it done Time's of the essence If you would wallow, self pity, your bed is warm Time's of the essence A feeling of rush, no escaping or fleeing from Time's of the essence I'll give you a reason to stop being so damn dumb Time's of the essence They keep us from questioning, something that shouldn't be done Time's of the essence If you would find enough reason to get it done Time's of the essence If you would find enough reason to get it done Time's of the essence If you would find enough reason to get it done Time's of the essence

Time's of the essence

about

WATER | language-based metaphors related to liquids. Visuals that remind of cymatics.

THE ROAD | endless road-trips, being away from home. Ghostly visuals of travelling an abstract road through a computer generated landscape.

DRIFT | the rich monotony of long distance travel. Ever changing patterns made from a limited set of visual elements, with shifting melodies and drifting rhythms.

about

ALOES Helsinki, Finland

We create atmospheric soundscapes with pop-melodies, vocals and crude beats that interact with live generated images. Through self-built software and instruments, they play with ambient structures, melodic elements, voice, landscape and particles. New media artist Alex van Giersbergen and sound artist Marloes van Son (born in NL, based in FI) combine efforts in this audiovisual collaboration. ... more
