Alejandro attempts to build a bridge linking a peak mystical experience with feelings of insatiability that find solace in addiction. Diving into deep listening, he unearths intergenerational trauma anchored within the nervous system. Nomadism and exile forge complex links that weave a mnemonic matrix. Through somatic improvisations and repetition, he empties myself, which invites awareness to be channeled through his body, echoing ancestral possession dances. His music, from oneiric vocal voyages to relentless repetitions of distorted samples, is a polyphony of archetypes. His movement revisits territories and objects with a relationship oscillating between physical, energetic, mental and imaginary states, allowing new neuropathways to emerge and restructure the nervous system. This myelination enables new mythologies to take root and open futures. This process highlights the spiritual wasteland in Western society, while unveiling contemporary ideology. It’s a quest for lost fragments, a yearning to once again reach the cosmic orgasm.

Alejandro Sajgalik

An interdisciplinary artist and energy worker, Alejandro Sajgalik is a descendent of restless blood. His current practice honors the transformative potential of transient deep-rootedness, exploring performance and music and their integration. Drawing from his experience with somatic movement, architecture, sociology, experimental music, and queerness, he dives into deep listening as a channel to critically de-identify the body from memory. His work includes videos, installations and writings. He holds a bachelor's in architecture and a master's degree in urban sociology.
