STEREOSCOPIC POINCARÉ: “The Labyrinth of Solitude” is a collaboration between Mauricio Reyes (Telekinett) and Adi Newton (Anterior Research), it features rare archival recordings of poetry read by Octavio Paz.
As defined by the Mexican Nobel Prize winner in Literature, Octavio Paz, the bee is the living depiction of loneliness. The bee is perhaps the only creature that is born with a true sense of its destiny. It grows, lives, and produces without questioning its labor. It is a social outcast with tremendous knowledge of its purpose, a being that lives with others in a lonely world.

STEREOSCOPIC POINCARÉ: “The Labyrinth of Solitude” is based on a song composed in 2005-2006 by Mauricio Reyes called “Love Song for Duchamp” and the essays of Octavio Paz.
Paz was a gentle writer with a fierce spirit. As defined by many, his poetry is “beautifully brutal”. He observes that solitude is responsible for people’s perspective on death, celebration, and identity. Death is celebrated but at the same time repelled because of the uncertainty behind it. “There is no such thing as going back home once you’ve left it”.
His work focuses on the loss of identity, of love for one’s self, and for the relentless quest to belong somewhere, to be heard, loved, and cared for. The solitude that comes from this quest was translated into music that is beautiful and cerebral, sharp and violent. The two final mixes are the fruit of audible poetry, concrete poetry in a three-dimensional form.

Poetry that triggers mental states and touches the listener’s very soul. Step into our aural labyrinth.
You are welcome.

“Solitude is the profoundest fact of the human condition. Man is the only being who knows he is alone, and the only one who seeks out another. His nature – if that word can be used in reference to man, who has ‘invented’ himself by saying ‘no’ to nature – consists of his longing to realize himself in another. Man is nostalgic and in search of communion. Therefore, when he is aware of himself he is aware of his lack of another, that is, of his solitude.”
Octavio Paz
