Disorient presents: COUNTRY CLUB XI - SATELLITE SEANCES
Join Disorient for year 11 of our annual journey of deep chilling, off-the-grid futurist relaxation. Country Club is a lake and lush green woodland oasis where blissful self-reliance meets massive multiplayer techno and technology participation. We invite you to roam the wild forest adventuring in constantly shifting blank canvas of music, art, and performance. Country Club is a fundraiser organized by an all volunteer team. All profits are used for Disorient art creations at Burning Man.
We know our annual journey of deep chilling, off-the-grid futurist relaxation is amorphous and can leave the uninitiated more questions than answers. Details, forms, links, FAQ and more at https://countryclub.disorient.info

Spring is a time to contemplate our steps into the year and to plan our footprints ahead. “Oriented” invites you to venture beyond the trees, down the path and into a mystical realm where the elements of nature are reimagined and reinterpreted. Your senses will be engaged by a variety of delights, including projection, music, flora, lights, elixirs, and other treats. This experience is designed to create an ethereal outpost within an outpost that invites you to connect with nature up close and far away. Join us for a special ritual on Friday and Saturday night, where we will deepen our connection with ourselves and our environment. This will be a multi-sensory experience where you can explore the transformative qualities of nature.

insect flights and otherworldy transformations is a 3D sound sculpture that acts as a giant antenna for a theremin within. This theremin is also a light hanging in the center of the sculpture itself mirroring the shape of the structure that contains it. It attracts humans and bugs. And can be played, reflecting human electromagnetic energies in quitet high pitched tones reflecting the insect world. It’s many faceted dome, reflecting the facets of their eyes. During the opening week at kochi the artist will come and play selected pieces in the sculpture to create a sound sphere environment for visitors on the inside, further contextualizing and activating the sound sphere. Dedicated to the flies, the mosquitoes and the wasps. Buzz buzz Three re-interpretations of “Fight of the Bumble-Bee” by Rimsky Korsakov. More about the music: In “The Tale of Tsar Sultan, The Great Bogatyr, and the Swan-Princess” the Bogatyr Gvidon is turned into sometimes a fly, then mosquito, then bumble-bee, and surely other countless variations on a series of insects, but a famous opera song has only been written for the bumble-bee sequence. Many of us are familiar with "Flight of the Bumble Bee" but what most of us don't know is it's not a composition about a bumble bee, it's a composition about a magical being "neither male nor female" according to Pushkin's version, who turns into a bumble bee to go fly from their liminal land of wonders to the kingdom of their birth to spy on their father who is being held prisoner by an evil witch who is also their grandmother. The bumble-bee is their third transformation, the first or second one was a mosquito (and the other a fly). There's an amazing rendition of the space the flies fly through through in the movies Night Watch and Day Watch. Though unlike director Timur Bekmambetov I was always taken with the mosquitoes. Flies carry disease, pestilence, dysentery, plague. Mosquitoes suck our blood, and carry Malaria, DengueI, Zika, West Nile, and other viruses. Wasps, while being important pollinators have a powerful stinger and evoke visceral fear in us humans. In “The Tale of Tsar Sultan, The Great Bogatyr, and the Swan-Princess”, transformation into insects is used to travel between the three and thirty kingdoms. It is said that birds travel between the realms, but I like this insect strain, they feel more other-worldy. Opening a rift through liminal space. Listen to them buzz around the sound-sphere and create your own buzzing with the metal itself.

Disorient has very few rules, but two require declaration and elaboration: 1. Respect personal boundaries. 2. Take responsibility for your own experience. The interplay of these two rules forms a social contract that makes our events safe places to explore your own boundaries while encouraging respect for each other. Talk to those around you about anything that makes you uncomfortable.
