Piotr Macha, SIKSA

Visual electro-noise album from Poland’s radical queer scene

SIKSA are Piotr Buratynski and Alex Freiheit. You could call this film a visual album: Every song of the real existing LP (Discogs calls it Non-Music or Punk or Spoken Word) gets its video clip, like a tableau, precisely staged, almost illustrated with high gloss, to often screamed lyrics and haunting noise. Here, contradiction to the conditions in contemporary Poland is expressed loud and clear.
