PC Music artist felicita shares video of music from dance piece Soft Power, new album coming in 2018
Just lick it.

Following felicita’s recent NTS radio show, the PC Music-affiliated artist has shared a new video for a work titled “hej!” Directed by Matt Copson, the video captures Polish dancing over sparse, fragile piano melodies that bend and swerve themselves through subtle wavering pitches and slight dissonance. The music comes from felicita’s Soft Power, an Unsound-commissioned performance piece featuring traditional dancers from Poland’s renowned Śląsk Song and Dance Ensemble. According to Unsound:

This unique work synthesizes traditional choreography and costume with new music to create a hypnotic multimedia experience. The concept stems from Felicita’s childhood education in traditional dance, and explores folk culture, national identity, tourism, branding, illusion, and farce.

PC Music notes that an album by felicita is coming in 2018. Could be an album version of Soft Power, could be something else. We have no idea. STOP ASKING. We’ll just have to sit tight for now and watch the video for “hej!” below.

And hey, if you’re in or around London, Soft Power will be performed Friday at Barbican for Unsound Dislocation alongside performances from NIVHEK (a.k.a. Grouper) & MFO and The Caretaker — oh, you know, just the absolute BEST musicians IN THE WORLD. More information can be found here.
