James Ferraro. Four Pieces For Mirai

James Ferraro - MIRAI

Four Pieces of Mirai is a stunning prelude to James Ferraro’s epic new work about civilisational decline, planned to span four releases this year. The initial transmission finds the preeminent bard and prescient se’er of the 21st Century establishing a dystopian present not dissimilar to our own, where society is in feudal bondage to digital networks, and the best resolution to the problem is a malware DDoS attack that disrupts the hold of the internet.

In keen pursuit of the hi-fi avant-pop themes central to Ferraro’s work since his critically acclaimed Far Side Virtual [Hippos In Tanks, 2011], the criminally unsung hero of the contemporary underground sets the scene for a timely and playfully foreboding vision of where humanity is headed, based on where we are now.

Poetically extrapolating from the present, Ferraro projects a musical allegory of the “technological plague, suburban decay, neofeudalism, hyper-connectivity, social famine and virtual exodus” that feels all too imminent. Integrating ideas from medieval music, Rensaissance music and ambient electronics with traces of hardstyle techno trance, metal, and indie-pop, the results broadly acknowledge and distill the modern sonic ecology to paint a dramatic realisation of humanity at a crisis of technological abundance and dysfunction, conceptually showcasing Ferraro’s uncanny ability to translate the peculiar character of our historical times into precise musical expression.

As the relationship between the scale of big data and socio-political structures becomes inarguably apparent in recent times, few artists are better equipped than James Ferraro - a crucial, pivotal pioneer of prevailing vaporware and lo-fi trends - to incisively meditate and imagine a future the world is anxiously anticipating.
