Timothy Kearns This duo reminds me of early Sci Fi novels that i started out reading, authors like Stanislaw Lem, Phillip K Dick, Issac Isimov, etc. and early Kraut rock like Ash Ra Temple, Cosmic Jokers, Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk. New and Alt! Makes me all warm inside! Ambient Electronic Bliss.

about

With Escherian devotion to infinity, the electro-punk music charge of Wanda and Nova deViator subtly flows from cool cosmic cyberfuturism to heated dance-floor fever. Drawing on a variety of genre offshoots, Maja Delak and Luka Prinčič use repetition to seamlessly develop the heritage of polyrhythm and deep bass tremors from domestic intimacy into an all-encompassing atmosphere. Their sonic habitat reflects existing social structures with technological precision, throwing a harsh light on flaws without fetishizing criticism. The world they weave from fragments of universality via sizzling electronic impulses and hypnotic vocal expression would likely be described as science fiction three decades ago – but today it is uncomfortable to think how accurately it reflects our own reality.

Building on the foundation established by their praised debut Pacification (Kamizdat, 2013), the diverse artists complement and upgrade the sounds of their upcoming new record with a live performance that reconceptualises their musical hybrid within the framework of intermedia and dance arts. Sensuality meets anger, passion cavorts intellectually with rebellion, yet at the same time, without endangering their own principles, the duo successfully follows the unwritten rule – this kind of music simply has to catch one’s ear willingly, sink in and touch the listener.

Track Name: Recursion
From level to level
Popping and pushing
Eager to shuffle
Stacking, recursing
Track Name: The Wall
It’s here and it’s there
feels like in dreams
bad dreams

It’s wall and it’s a line
idea of boundary
is real

It’s crucial and it’s big
feels like in dreams
bad dreams

It’s here and it’s there
feels like in dreams
bad dreams

And what is inside
what is outside
a dream

It’s here and it’s there
which side you are on
it’s a wall

It’s total isolation
feels like left alone
left alone

It’s here and it’s there
feels like left alone
left alone

To die to lose the self
and rejoin the rest
a dream

It’s here and it’s there
feels like in dreams
bad dreams

To die to lose the self
and rejoin the rest
a dream

It’s here and it’s there
feels like in dreams.
Track Name: Arcologies
arcologies arcologies, the impossible worlds, telling
stories and mythologies re-patching lost cords over
techno-landscapes zoomin’ in to nano-circuits, the
shapes data takes to dominate the markets
sky-scapes are grey like tuned to a dead channel
fly-bys hint on dreaming lost dreams of space-travel
fiberoptic grid supports jacking-in for greed, while
playin’ the drug-field of hormones and speed

cyberspace cowboys with shady techno-criminal games
information power-toys for ice-breaking digital frames
code is survival
but body becomes meat

there’s passion for freedom, but choice’s a devil’s trick
add climate of feardom, and all the world is dick or sick
endless data manipulation, nerve splicing, microbionics
escape to space station, shapers kickin’ into robotics
sky behind the mirrorshades techno is one fragile mask
become the supervillain and take the crazy task
powerful halucination, crazy stories, flash projection
facing the causation, forcing hard self-reflection

cyberspace cowboys with shady techno-criminal games
information power-toys for ice-breaking digital frames
code is survival
but body becomes meat
Track Name: Levitation
As I walk the street I see
people walking, working, talking,
smiling, whistling, touching, kissing,
reaching, reading, singing, running, stopping

I feel faces passing, voices calling,
bodies sweating, arms reaching,
eyes shining, feet stepping,
love melting

As I watch from my window
I can hear people laughing, shouting,
screaming, begging, gossiping, envying,
lying, blaming, fear raising

Alone or not I smell the fear coming
greed rising, teeth grinding,
grip tightening, struggle growing,
grievous falling

Running through the streets I sense
the heart beating, fight rising,
not trusting, hate growing,
bomb falling, gun triggering

I fear that empty
all exhausted world will stop spinning
feet will have no land to step on
hand will no more reach another

I fear that empty
all exhausted world will stop spinning
feet will have no land to stand on
hand will no more reach another

We never really die
Track Name: Wrappings
Nothing is to touch anything else
all is so carefully packaged

Nothing comes as it is
all is so carefully packaged

In a clean fancy paper, plastic or foil
everything comes inside layers of wrappings

In abundance of things touches in wrappings
all is so carefully packaged

Nothing touches anything else
overflow crowd of wrappings
all is so carefully packaged
Track Name: Iffy Night
in the bar band is playing retro
dusty, sticky back in time
solitary needy people hunting meat
bodies radiating heat
plans are up in the air
iffy, it’s so iffy night
ain't sure about that proposition
iffy, it's so iffy night

she used to be a boy with gymnast body
now she's everyone's girl
he's a man with conjurers hands
she smiles, his eyes well hidden
outside the bar, predawn blue
sound of retro band and rain
bodies quivering, vibrating
iffy, it's so iffy night

ain't sure about that proposition
iffy, it's so iffy night
gone, lost, waisted
iffy, it's so iffy night
click, bang, twist
meat puppet - gone
up in the air
iffy, it's so iffy night

he cut, hit, skillfully, abruptly
frozen smile, empty
her body twisted at his feet
palms up, white fingers slightly open
she held a paper in her hand
white paper – message
"i'm not just one of your many toys"
iffy, it's so iffy night
Track Name: Singing Noise
tell me what you want
tell me what you do
tell me what you hear
tell me what you see
tell me what you feel
singing noise

lonely lonely lonely
singing noise

I hear
singing in the ears
not noise
but singing noise
keeping myself from crying
keeping myself from crying
keeping myself from trying

lonely lonely singing noise
I don’t know
I can’t tell
I’ve seen you before that way

I don’t know
I can’t tell
I’ve seen you before that way

singing noise singing noise
singing noise

come on now moon, time is precious
