Fly Pan Am have composed some of their most direct, visceral and immediately
satisfying music for the acclaimed modern dance piece FRONTERA by Montréalbased troupe Animals Of Distinction. Juxtaposing stern foreboding electronics
and minimalist motorik avant-rock, the Frontera studio album superbly captures
the bristling, sculpted, intensely evocative instrumental pieces that Fly Pan Am
developed in close conception and collaboration with the dancers. The Frontera
recordings track faithfully to the narrative of the original work, where eight
movements (featuring a company of 10 dancers) flow from controlled chaos and
tensely choreographed kinetics to slow, wrenchingly austere set pieces. This also
music stands powerfully and exceptionally well on its own, resonating with the
themes of the devastating dance piece. Oscillating between tension and release,
evoking anxious interzones and claustrophobic spaces, borders and surveillance,
resistance and separation, solidarity and cooperation, bodies blocked and
restrained, monitored and pursued, hiding and escaping, yearning and
overcoming - Frontera conveys an overarching landscape of forbidding and
foreclosure, of determined and desperate movement, and the unfathomable
multiplicities of trauma and resilience that occur under dehumanising
international apparatuses of inadmissibility and control. Deluxe 180gram vinyl
includes artworked inner and 6-panel fold-out insert featuring photographic stills
from the original dance production. RIYL: This Heat, Faust, Mika Vainio, Felicia
Atkinson, Lucretia Dalt, Moon Duo, Liars, Suuns, Mogwai
