an_outskirt’s Night Breaks

an_outskirt is a story-telling project. @anoutskirt is a Brooklyn, New York based story-telling project. its focus is Filipino folklore, superstition, chant, ritual, + electro acoustic sound worlds warped thro their immigrant experience. 

Night Breaks is an excerpt from our opera called Mga Stasyon (The Stations). Mga Stasyon is an opera structured as a series of vignettes where conversations on history – personal and (multi)national – clash, mix, and synthesize with our immigrant experiences. Mga Stasyon is derived from the ritual reading and reenactment of Christ’s Pasyon in the Philippines. The pasyon text was a Spanish colonial tool to inculcate the natives and promote docility. In an unexpected turn of events, this text became the spark that fueled popular uprisings against Spanish and subsequent American rule. Rice grains, brass gongs, bamboo, and chanting are sounds rich in symbolic significance for both pre colonial Philippines and for us, growing up. These along with voices, loopers, samplers, mixers, synths and guitars comprise the opera’s sound world.
