Yllis: Parade

must see www.yllisparade.lol

Parade explores narcissism in today’s world. It questions the ecstasy of parading the self to the world—duplicating the self or achieving the image of the ideal self as a means of achieving a sense of value,‌distinction or immortality.

How do we construct our identity in a post-representational digital reality? Parade is a fantasy rainy world, where hearts together with hundreds of other emojis orgasmically fly across the screen.

‌Yllis makes experimental electronic pop, melding a myriad of sonic influences to create a musical image of the future—a vision of globalized culture streaming through wireles internet pipelines, borderless and‌hyperconnected.

Parade, an audio and visual collaboration with Czech-Dutch experimental design studio‌The Rodina, takes us into Yllis’ deeply personal and ultimately expressive post-Internet universe.
