It's like this: You come home from CRACK! and you're happy. A little bit like you're still on CRACK! mentally. This happiness lasts for a few weeks sometimes. It's not that you want to go back but more like you never really left the Forte. The rest of the year you do what you can to make the rest of the world a better place. Around December usually, you start thinking about going back. A feeling that gets more intense as June gets closer. You start to plan for the next one, try to think of a bigger, better contribution. You want to return to the family, return home. CRACK! is the real world, the rest is just inbetween.

Mattias Elftorp
The destructive character sees nothing permanent. But for this very reason he sees ways everywhere. Where others encounter walls or mountains, there, too, he sees a way. But because he sees a way everywhere, he has to clear things from it everywhere. Not always by brute force; sometimes by the most refined. Because he sees ways everywhere, he always stands at a crossroads.
Walter Benjamin

Piekny Pink/Green (Beautiful Rosa/Verde) è una performance audio video di Andrea Noce e Scott Sinclair, presentata in esclusiva per Crack. Andrea è una cantante-polistrumentista-producer, coinvolta in numerose collaborazioni ma conosciuta ai più come metà del duo pop/dance le ROSE. Scott crea collage aggressivi e umoristici attraverso l'impiego di diversi media - computer music, video art, costumi custom-made - il cui risultato finale è altamente interdisciplinare. Un mare aperto di colori primari bagnati di delay e sinuosi pad arpeggiator, virando finché il "pink" diventa "green".
