I was asked to compose and produce the soundtrack of Tímea Sebestyén's contemporary dance performance: SUPREMA

wrote a serie of tracks called "Tape" as a reference to the machinery
that dr. William Moulton Marston invented such as the lie detector. You
can find sound references to the different mechanical parts of those
machines. I also used the sound of piano hammers as the personification
of dr. William Moulton's voice/mind. The track "Nutter" was my take on
illustrating the frenetic journey of a lost mind leaning towards
schizophrenia. Finally, I remixed one of my earlier track "False Truths"
to support the climax of the show.
performance was inspired by the character of Wonder Woman, a female
ideal created by dr. William Moulton Marston, professor of psychology. A
female ideal born through a man’s perspective, a female ideal knitted
by its creator into two women: his wife and lover, a female ideal that
is the “fruit” of a polygamous relationship. Thanks to the psychological
grounding of the character, she is the only superhero to be truly
popular to this day. Equality has become a symbol of truth and feminist
propaganda. An attractive and strong character with which millions of
women can identify, know themselves, as it has many qualities that can
be found in everyone individually.
production is the interpretation, processing and questioning of the
character from a female perspective. In terms of her subject matter, she
does not speak of her oppression and does not discuss the issue of
female existence. Rather, it shows a grotesque world where reality slips
into fantasy and returns to real space. It examines the layers of our
personality through our desires, sexuality, and fears. What does female
power really mean? Are the two actors one and the same or two separate
entities with different desires and needs? Can the “perfect”, the “real”
or the complementarity necessary for this be realized in one person?
