Tetine, Music For Breathing (video release)



“Music For Breathing” is the new video and single by the tropical mutant punk funk duo Tetine taken from their new album After the Future - out now on Slum Dunk Music, 2023.


Formed by Brazilian musicians/artists Bruno Verner, Eliete Mejorado and cellist Yoko Afi, Tetine have been producing a series of singular works intersecting electronic music, performance art, film/video, and spoken word, and acting in experimental contexts both in the music and art scenes since their creation in São Paulo in 1995.


“Music For Breathing” is a dreamy electro-acoustic meditation for cello, treated voices, electronics, and organ, dedicated to our planetary ecosystem in erosion.  Conceived by Eliete Mejorado, the video is an ode to Earth’s ancestral future as the only possible future. One that was already here: a non-human cosmic, forested and aquatic inherited future moved by the movement of rivers, trees, the stars, insects, birds, plants, landscapes, roads, stones, light, the sky, and the sun. It is a slow piece about electricity and a poetic allegory against the centrality of humans and capitalism as the mufflers of other presences.


“Music For Breathing” dwells on such complex relationships motivated by a strong desire for collective change, a shift towards a greater understanding of the cosmos without the need to produce for ‘progress’.

The track also comes with “Spaced Out in Paradise”, a washed out, hypnotic melancholic track sung by Yoko and Bruno as they search for another planetary contact.
