Torschlusspanik – “5α-Reductase 2 Deficiency

TX: Saturday, 26th August, Midday – 12.30pm + Monday, 28th September, 6pm – 6.30pm

“5α-Reductase 2 Deficiency” is a loosely sequential montage of edited found and created sounds created while the author fixated on disciplinarian violence, traditionalist child grooming, self-immolation fantasies, queer venereal horror, childhood trauma, and extreme examples of communication breakdown.

Originated in 2013, Torschlusspanik is a middle-aged Tennessee gal’s outlet for mostly unpleasant and nonrealistic music that has been summarized as “maximalist electro-acoustic” in the past. A wide scramble of sounds are crudely forced into sound collage and (vague) song format intended for weaponizing emotional overstimulation and mulling over lost opportunity as time is near expired.
