Papaphilia is the solo project of Fjorn. For a decade Fjorn explored anxiety-ridden embodiment in live performance through improvised harshed out electronic effects and tape manipulation. Under the Papaphilia pseudonym she aurally interrogates the aesthetics of political representation in the contemporary settler-colonial context, by morphing samples of sensual vocalizations of exaltation from RnB, disco, pop and traditional pop standards, into an experimental electronic palette. Her current releases include 4 Animals Dream of a Shadow on Nice Music and À L’état Brut on Happy Endin’. Together these releases are a two-part exploration of the sonic possibilities of finding political resonance beyond discourses of objectivity and objecthood, proposing disorientation as an embodied and durational opening to recalibrating confluences between poesis and praxis in techne.
