Alien Nation is a live music performance that focuses on the concept of alienation and the complex relationship between individual and universe. When in conflict with reality, an individual’s consciousness, as well as whole societies, can become alienated from their environment, leading to isolation from or dispute with their universal surroundings. Alien Nation is the continuation of Makimakkuk’s research into supporting traumatized generations. The performance includes original electronic compositions, singing, spoken-word, music samples, and sonic objects, each of which has a subject/topic that sonically triggers a memory or feeling from the performer.
