El Bus, by AntiQuark, the 1st track from the album Riches To Rags, originated from darker periods of life.
Role-playing Bukowski, one sits on a metro bus for its entire route along the southern tips of the city. The story begins: ‘hopeless…we all work so hard and nothing will ever change’. But one also learns that simple changes in perspective and pattern can slip you out from the cage forever.
Music written by Ant Dakini. Vocals & lyrics by Sergio O.
beat us to death
leaves no hope
no hope for us
never hope for us
the dead on their feet
they drip drip drip
along the streets
the drip drip drip
their language speaks
if you only believe
then how can you conceive
little losses of life
beat us to death
and i do
and all i see
this march of death
come walk with me
that so old book
(they) told me to read
get Jesus Christ
lay down with me
but you only believe
that which only believes
little losses of life
…i am only breath…
i am breath
the rest is death
march to all the rest
the rest all leads to death
still just working so hard
just to live dead.

AntiQuark on stage with 3D Holographic Design by Selwyn Lissack titled “Inner Space” (for movie backgrounds and concerts). According to Selwyn, this is meant to remind people that whatever exists in outer space also exists in InnerSpace.
Videos by Patty Rangel and Intrinsic M.
Holography (from the Greek ὅλος hólos, “whole” + γραφή grafē, “writing, drawing”) is a technique that allows the light scattered from an object to be recorded and later reconstructed so that when an imaging system (a camera or an eye) is placed in the reconstructed beam, an image of the object will be seen even when the object is no longer present.
The image changes as the position and orientation of the viewing system changes in exactly the same way as if the object were still present, thus making the image appear three-dimensional.
This effect can be seen in the figure on the right where the orientation of the mouse is significantly different in the two images and its position relative to other parts of the scene has changed.
The holographic recording itself is not an image – it consists of an apparently random structure of either varying intensity, density or profile.

Di provenienza artistica americana (California), gli AntiQuark sono un duo elettronico composto da Ant Dakini (italiana) e da Sergio Ordonez (panamense), e questo Skydancer è il loro primo (ed al momento unico) album.
Composto da 7 tracce inedite più vari remix e new mix il lavoro si snoda tra un’elettronica orecchiabile composta da atmosfere spesso eurodance e/o da club, come nel caso dell’opener “The man from Mars”, dove il l’evocativo cantato di Ordonez rende il brano efficace e di grande ballabilità. La scelta dei suoni appare sempre azzeccata, e l’imput di base è quello di ricercare nelle sfumature pop di molte canzoni qui presenti l’elemento dance, ma senza scadere nella banalità di molto musica del genere, cercando di conseguenza anche di sperimentare modalità sonore più dark wave (“Shameless”) e più nineinchnailsiane come nel caso della corrosiva e groovosa “Planet X”, dove la parte vocale si fa confidenziale e sensuale. Davvero ottimo il lavoro della Dakini nella strumentale “La fine”, tra percussioni jungle e ampio uso di synth, ma in generale le sue basi emergono sempre varie e stilisticamente interessanti, e quando lo sono di meno vengono in soccorso gli interessanti remix inseriti nella seconda parte dell’album.
In sostanza Skydancer è un buon album di elettronica a 360°, non rumoroso ma efficace e divertente, ben eseguito e prodotto che ci da la possibilità di apprezzare il lavoro di un interessantissimo duo dance da monitorare per il futuro.
