What do you prefer: the incessant sound of a textile factory during a work day or a rave party for three days? In AFTER-WORK there is no choice, as in life many of us, work and party go hand in hand. Old textil factory without workers. The continuous sound movement of machines introduce us in a hypnotic journey to past. Different spaces with specific machinery creating an rytmic engines sound that evoque workers memory and the beginning of industrialization. In this context – accompanied by electronic music – arise the rave culture.
