DIE KRAFT

Demian Licht

Demian Licht's debut album

Demian Licht debut album ‘Die Kraft’ reflects a refinement of her cinematic aesthetics, in continuum with her previous, well received ‘Female Criminals’ EP trilogy where she co-directed and co-produced videos in collaboration with Ricardo Soto, with shootings at Berlin’s Soviet War Memorial and Mexico’s Guanajuato. Music and videos are all out via Demian Licht’s Motus Records.
Sonically scripted under the concept of ‘Die Kraft’ (‘the force’ in German), boarded as the ‘Ometéotl’ (the dual god/goddess of creation, according Aztec mythology) and represented as a unified dance among light/darkness, fragility/strength, femininity/masculinity.
‘Die Kraft’ has grown between Germany and Mexico, where Demian Licht had ancestral ceremonies with women shamans too. It’s the sonic interpretation of ‘El Camino Rojo’ (the red road), the path through where ancients cultures in Mexico used to invoke their ancestors and masters.
‘Die Kraft’ narrates these ceremonies track by track. ‘Invoke’ to begin, ‘Ollin’ (‘movement’ in Náhuatl) to proceed, ‘Pneuma’ (‘spirit’ in ancient Greek) to receive the invoked deities. Moreover, ‘Bellator Lumins’ (‘guardian of light’ in Latin) to explore the dual energy, ‘Hexe’ (‘witch’ in German) to meet the shamans, guardians of ancient heritage. ‘Instinto’ (‘instinct’ in Spanish) as the inner truth, ‘Schwingung’ (‘oscillation, vibration’ in German) as the main source of the entire ritual, the singing. ‘Selenophile’ (‘love and fascination for the moon, madness for the moon’ in Greek) is the unit of duality, an astronomical body revered by Aztec religion as goddess Coyolxauhqui.
‘Die Kraft’ is also an immersive live show, orchestrating music, light and architecture in collaboration with Fragments and Forms, a multimedia studio in Mexico City.

Berlin - Mexico
1Projects
From Mexico City's vibrant, heady underground dance scene Demian Licht emerged in 2016 as an electrifying new voice in techno with the self-released debut Female Criminals Vol. 1 through her label Motus Records, a brooding, fiercely intellectual, floor-orientated call to feminist arms. Her well-received Female Criminals EP trilogy, alongside her cinematic live performances & A/ V shows, positioned her within the international music scene, coinciding with Demian's qualification as an Ableton Certified Trainer, making her the first (and as yet only) woman in Latin America to hold such certification.
She had also released music on Eotrax & Phantom Limb.
She is recently based in Berlin.
