Moor Mother - The Motionless Present

Moor Mother has this torque in it, this tension. What she’s talking about, the sound of it and how fast it moves, it's uncaring in a way, but it’s there to represent something extremely real and earth-bound. I'm not aligning what I do with her at all, but that sound, that crunched up thing, it's dreamlike in a way that isn't about a removal from this dream that we're in. Because things feel so surreal at times. Nobody knows what's going on: Trump, Putin, the DUP, this is a kind of fiction, a phantasmagorical thing.
