darkness suits me
John Common a boy 17 years of age received an invite with much excitement from his friends to attend a dance party. John curious, and seeking information about this celebration asked his mum “mum what is a dance party?’. His mum responded with describing…
[blockquote author=”Statement by John’s mum Elma Common” single=”true”]…a dance party as a place where a group of intoxicated people meet, all orchestrated by the devil himself. Crowds are dancing to glitch style music with darker themes and celebrating the darkness. Describing the ceremony as Bacchic rites with having the power to alter people’s moral judgements manifesting in the loss of traditional boundaries. An industrial-inflected music orgy indulging darkness in creating that eclectic, highly danceable, don’t care holiday feel.[/blockquote]
John Common that night had a dream which I will share with you.
John’s dream starting with the music playing trap, dubstep, and some form of glitch music with a high level of future bass, some tracks slow paced. The background noises include high pitch Vox, keyboards playing consistent notes, beating drums, as well as enticing dropping sound created by strings. The music has lyrics and the words are somewhat repetitive. Phrases included many sexual or deviant suggestions that John finds it to be stimulating.
Slowly and almost balanced to the beat the place in John’s dream takes shape. The curtain cleared the stage is set, the dream morphed in a festival of extraordinarily unusual, unrestrained activities, intoxication and ecstasy. Paid corrupted officials standing by making this event impunity with open to all social classes, ages and sexes to achieve an ecstatic union with the divine. There is this massive rush of hitting John, filled with happiness, and a genuine brilliant atmosphere. With everybody mainly feeding off each other, where everybody’s shouting and screaming and dancing. And all of a sudden John got this huge whoosh running through his body and out of it sort of thing – John didn’t know where it went – a tremendous energy force almost. And then going mad again, just dancing still and going crazy.” Feeling great!
John being here in his vision was like playing out narcissistic, infantile fantasies. It felt to him like total ‘masturbatory’. John temporarily’ freed from ‘fixed identity’ defined by gender, race, class or sexuality as the divisions and boundaries surrounding these identities become blurred. A dance track playing on the confusion between past and present to create an intense, chaotic reality and a synthesised contraction anything is available, everything can be delayed, slowed down, or distorted. It is this contraction creating a powerful emotional experience for John in his dream as all revel in Dionysian bliss.
In his dream, John an attractive man, with a beautiful body, and using his strength and lean body mass to impress women and scare men. Women seduced, fascinated by his mystique taking part of alcohol-fueled sexual promiscuity, in which screams of the abused were drowned out by the din of drums and psydub…blissed out and in complete overdrive John wakes up sweaty wondering about his dream and not fully understood whispers “darkness suits me”.
