Paul, James, Alice, Hugh, Kate, Mark… Their voices sing memories and desires, nostalgia and ecstasy: only irony sees a technological and efficient world, but very little human. The speech synthesizer plays some of the most famous songs of music history. The compilation triggers an uncanny process of recognition and denial of what is simultaneously in the past and in the future. The playlist wants to be ridiculous and grotesque, creepy and attractive at the same time.
The title HIT MANIA 2084 stands in an incisive and mechanical way: letters and numbers are converted in a composition of intriguing drawings and graphisms.
