The art-pop collision of 2 North American icons – Barbie + Wire – begins to describe this new project created by Clara Venice and producer Sean Roman. From the incongruous harmonics arising from the interplay of Theremin, DJ spin sampler, violin, and vocals, they have originated a new matrix of sights and sounds. It’s Trip-Hop meeting Science Lab – stapling new onto old as only Barbinewire can. Barbie is the doll who never ages, who never wears the same thing twice. She is made to measure for her vast consuming public. She personifies the twist of provocation, punishment and pleasure, a.k.a. “barbed wire”, a dance she performs with partner Sharpie, a new kind of Ken. This new duo is a current and art-full as they come. contact: listen:
