Reptilicus performed an improvised piece titled Re:Written at the Grand Finale of the Tectonics festival in Harpa, Reykjavík, yesterday. GIM and Jóhann collected raw material during the festival by recording bits and pieces from other performances which were then manipulated and edited on stage.

Apart from emphasising the way the piece was put together, the titled refers to the human tendency to take things out of context and infuse them with new meaning. For the visuals, a live microscope was utilised on stage — for as a visual aid, it does an excellent job of removing whatever it hones in on out of its immediate context.

The visuals were operated by Kári Hrafn Guðmundsson.
