About DROMOS 

"In the field of science and technology that built the Western world there are only machines which accelerates. Whoever invent a machine to slow down would be considered as an absurd man "- Paul Virilio, 1991

The artist duo Fraction & Maotik will perform a very singular live performance in 20.6 surround and 360° visual, esspecially developed for the Stratosphere of Mutek Festival.

DROMOS is based on the conceptual works of French Philosopher Paul Virilio, which started two years ago. Recognizing the vital role that the speed in the organization of our societies, the French philosopher and architect Paul Virilio has developed several years ago the general concept of dromology (the science of speed in human society). He laid the foundations for a new paradigm of thinking about the role of new technologies, of our interactions with them, and of the question of our future. DROMOS is a  technical and metaphorical allegory of a sound and a visual world in which speed is the main factor in the interaction between the media. They immerse us in a sensory landscape in permanent construction and deconstruction, causing accidents aesthetic, and poetic movement of changing times.
