"Ma qui la morta poesì resurga, o sante Muse, poi che vostro sono"
The Purgatory returns on Saturday, February 24. For the first time within the series we are to experience a concert in the middle of the night. The curators of this series have been watching the talent that is Patris for some time and now – that we've heard a record is coming out on PPP – we are honoured to be a part of the rise of this musical extraordinaire. Patris combines his skill as a cellist with his love for the electric, the analog and the dark. Patris is bringing both his synths and his cello with him to Riga. And we think that the beautiful sound system and the space of ONE ONE lit by the live visuals of DEE is the perfect environment to experience this unique music. Raw. Dark. Live. Black and white. Purifying.
A guest performance is also to be expected from a friend that we have not heard for quite some time and that we are very happy to welcome – the talented disc jockey AND writer Andris Kuprišs. Also – having his second appearance in the Purgatory will be our boy Trashy Kid.
House Purgatorio is an event series that dares to combine the seemingly guilty pleasures of electronic dance music culture with the aesthetics and conceptual oeuvre of classical art and literature. With a direct reference to Dante and the Divina Commedia the creators of the series use raw, dark, black and white imagery and musical manipulations to create a world within a world – a neatly structured isle of the classical within the tempest of spontaneity in a club setting and vice versa – the alive and daring in a world of where you thought you knew what the owls seem to be.
