Promonews - 3rd Sept 2018

Daniel Sannwald has created a performance piece for Warp's latest signee Yves Tumor that builds considerable atmosphere with the classic techniques of lighting, and simple in-camera effects.

Tumor looms out of the shadows, bathed in scarlet light, sometimes distorted, as in a hall-of-mirrors, sometimes masked and interacting with other masked figures.

The overall effect is haunting, mesmerising and visceral. It's also as subversively sensual as the title of the song: Licking An Orchid.
