Assembling ideas through modifying rhythm and texture, Robin Buckley terraforms the terrain of contemporary dance music, pulling from YouTube clips, EDM sample packs, vibrators, Euro-pop hits of the 90’s, and computer music—to reframe relationships to sounds previously thought to be familiar. Within immersive sonic worlds, Buckley’s rhythms serve as cultural critiques, crafting hopeful narratives while also implicating violently normative social orders, moving through different mediums, narratives, and even Venga Boys edits to impart meaning.

Appears as part of Amplify.
Amplify is led by the British Council, MUTEK and Somerset House Studios, with the support of Canada Council for the Arts.
