Dem Land Südtirol die Treue

Plunderphonics reinterpretation of the classic tyrolean song “Dem Land Tirol die Treue”

2018

 

The fourteen minutes long EP samples various pieces of the typical tyrolean song “Dem Land Tirol die Treue”. The plunderphonic tracks provoke a sense of confrontation between the rural tradition of the region and the on-going modernization and globalization of its people. The song fuses the traditional accordion, cow bells and south tyrolean dialect, with electronic and videogame inspired sounds.

Like the song itself, the music video takes on the theme of conflict between old and new in the region of Tyrol, or more specific Südtyrol. A mix of culture-based videos and psychedelic effects reflect the EP’s theme, adding another layer of deepness to it.
