about

WREST is a collision; a dueling violent negotiation of form, theme, and texture. Starting in May of 2010, WREST was a performance project, a locus for intermedia exploration and is now a visual album of music and video. Over the last two years composer and intermedia artist, Jules Gimbrone, has cultivated a place for collaboration and cross-medium exchange with filmmakers, dancers, and artists. Centering around Gimbrone's 7-piece electroacoustic ensemble, WREST depicts moments of imperative change housed within the queer body. Gimbrone’s ensemble creates a symphonic landscape through a dramatic mash of polyrhythm, grand melodic gestures, abrasive sound textures, and primordial vocalizations to be explored through a variety of vantages.

about

JULES GIMBRONE Los Angeles, California

Jules approaches sound and composition through the lens of architectural, sculptural and choreographic interplay. Jules attempts to erect system and structures, which are conceptually sound but simultaneously house their inevitable demise and fallibility, specifically within the multiple failures and queerings of the performative body. ... more

Track Name: LOCOMOTION
Locomotion through the hills
Raise our flag, we tear and tear
Through the earth, forge and flame
Taste our blood and call our name

I am shadow, rock and stain
Looming vision to obey
Send your hungry tombs away
We will not release to you
Away, Away

I forgive your
Green-eyed lusting
Your rumbling belly
Your swords for thrusting
Your hands for stealing
Your heart for hushing
Your ink for lying
While we are dying
While you are dying
Track Name: FROM ON THE SHIPS
From the outside
You are bigger
Fallen Fortress
Full of Rain

Concrete Vision
Let me light you
I will enter
Call my name

I am neither for or from you
I am either for or from you
Track Name: BEARING DOWN
It came from on the ships
bearing, bearing down
Black death upon their lips
bearing, bearing down

People huddled, prayers for dawn
bearing, bearing down
Press their white eyes up to god
bearing, bearing down
This is where my face first felt light
I brought my air to her
When I cried

White cotton flush with red
bearing, bearing down
Sweet oil upon my head
bearing, bearing down
My mother’s seafoam eyes
I sailed to them
When I died
Track Name: O MICHAEL
Grey Field
Bathed in holy light
Oh what
I see

Two wings

Two eyes
holding me in flight
golden honey

Oh Michael Oh Michael ( )

Give your body
Two arms
Sever the Tethers

Heed the calling
Lit sky
Fall without warning

Wait, wait, weight, weight, wait, wait, weight, weight

Who
Who
Who
Who do you think
Who do you think
Think you are?
Track Name: SPOOL OR NEST
Wound unmoving orbit
A spool or nest, a spool or nest, a spool or nest, spool or
Catch the taste of metal
Bones they snap, bones they snap, bones they snap to
Armor built to weather
The fools and traps, the fools and traps, the fools and traps
Light just like a feather
I rise and flap, rise and flap
Wound
Track Name: A FORMING
Now a forming
Now a holding
Now a dense, warm swish like a breath

Sweet and brimming
Soft shell swimming
Roam in circles through and away
Track Name: SHINE
And for you I’d be the bitter ore
For you I’d be the flame
Just hot enough to shine through

Metal bars upon the window
Metal locks and metal chains
Hold my head, you are my captor

Prod the embers
Sweet like honey

Give me signs
Of your intentions
Fear I am too strong
To let it
Track Name: WAIL
No light
Ever touched my face
No lines of fortune to erase
No call
Of figure form or trace
No movement for or from the race

A sound
Like an opening
I am forgetting everything
