TÚWAQACHI: THE FOURTH WORLD was created by iconoclast musician/producer Bill Laswell as an alternative score to Godfrey Reggio's 1982 ground breaking film "Koyaanisqatsi: Life out of Balance". Originating as an audio/visual interaction for live/solo performance only. The program has been compacted into a continuous one hour journey. Replacing Phillip Glass' epic original score with a completely contrasting vision (film and sound together to be used for live performance only). The sound alone, "TÚWAQACHI" the new sound track, is a haunting rite of passage, through shadows and aether, darkness and light. Ethereal environmental ambient, enhanced distorted destruction and doomed decay. A new enlightened, visceral and sometimes tortured landscape. Bill Laswell's signature low end theory at its most demonic and illuminated. Proceed with caution.
