This year the Picnic Sessions are celebrating their 10th anniversary. Like every year, we will be taking over the art centre’s roof terrace every Thursday from 31 May through 12 July, turning it into a place mixing body and sound, a place to meet, to dance, to sing and watch the sunset.

“Let’s see … INTERNATURALTECNOWAVES means something like we are all connected through techno waves. It makes reference to electronics, though more recent. And also to the interconnection generated by all those of us who gather together for these Picnics. They take shape as itinerant communities of meaning. I also like electronic music but without electronic instruments. For me, these Picnics have a digital, sentient touch but are never nostalgic. And another thing we liked was the idea that even though it is trash-techno, there’s a lot of light in the programme in itself. That is what we were looking for. There has to be something hypnotic about it. Definitely, and colour too.”

“Do they want us to start recording? Fine, I’m already at it. In on-mode. That’s how everything happens in an internaturaltecnowaves desert, electronic and recent, where everything with a black sound has magic, is full of sparkle, magnetism, metal howling, fluorescent highways with irreverent songs, soft material machine, a techno-trash collage with luminous power. Hypnotic and full of colour or colours. Very Móstoles and very southern. With a couple of pink hoods on our heads and some marks on the body. A pact of permanence in a Polaroid photo. A mix of bodies vibrating to the sound of chants and sweating hormones among neon tubes lighting up a moonless night full of stars, dancing in the freedom of what is firmly rooted. ‘Among spring flowers, the buffaloes lie down surrounded by upright pine-trees, the white cranes rest. With our voices, the sunset falls over the terrace.’ Are you up for something like that?”
