It chews and grinds Peaks and winds Motivates, keeps us alive A fool bolts fun But what is it, what is it? If pain’s the same Then what feels good? One shows up, the other one not A fool bolts fun But what is it, what is it? Rejecting it is easy ‘cause I’m not easy to please My claims are high A key thing, sure, can’t tell it quite Surprising, sure, can feel it right It’s doing what you can’t do This is it, this is it! We go (what is it) Fishing (what is it, what) For pleasure and pain (what, what, what is) In our (what is it) Mind- (what is it) oceans We’re throwing our lines We go (what is it) Collecting (what is it, what) The good and bad (what, what, what is) In our (what is it) Mind- (what is it) oceans We’re taking our lanes

(Man to neighbour): “Have you heard about this monster Living in a cave far, far away? That no one has ever seen But might come one day?” No one believed him Until one day it really showed up Auauauauauauau Auauaua-a Auau-uauauauau Auauaua Even devil’s forces failed Hell would be forever doomed and banned So humanity, it begged, “Monster, can we ask you for a trade?” “You get two choices. Chose wisely so we don’t all blow up, blow up!” “Ok. Either I leave you all unhurt now And will come back later, let’s say in 20 years And kill everyone then Or You have to give up soy sauce And all your cars right away I’ll leave you alive and won’t ever come back!” So humanity discussed The difficulty of their choice, indeed “But, how should we eat our rice then? We can’t risk to lose our base!” So then they told him They can’t give up their Most beloved affairs Prefer to shift it Procrastinate shit And let the cycle run again Auauauauauauau Auauaua-a Auau-uauauauau Auau-a-u

I’ll let them I’ll let them go Those Perfect Pictures How they got me on The smashed words And flawless vows They’re spelling dangerous quotes But they are sworn to go Go, go! ‘Cause our risks they may or may not Pan out Go, try (let go) Open Other Doors To look behind Go, try (let go) Oh complexity can be So confusing I’ll let them I’ll let them go Those better chances They were born to go And as they And as they crawl Hidden behind fence Hidden behind Hind-uhu, hind-uhu, hind-uhu ‘Cause our risks they may or may not Pan out Go, try (let go) Open Other Doors To look behind Go, try (let go) Oh simplicity can be Easy Go, try (let go) Open Other Doors To look behind Go, try (let go) Oh complexity can be So confusing Go! uhu Go! uhu Go! uhu Go! uhu

We called it home, as time went by The distant feel, concealed by dirty air Stilled in western sky, and around it Twilight birthing, reddening moon Still the western sky is above us A single storm is double in June Ooh Ooh Our swallowed breath, my son and I With whipping wind, in unison we sing Stilled in eastern sky, and around it Daylight ready, silver cocoon Still the eastern sky doesn’t heal us You care to corn the fields at harvest moon Soon You care to corn the fields You care to corn the fields

Romance Scam 02:56
Mmmh… Became victim of his crime I went blind to see more clearly He asked money, asked for love And said: “Right now!” Mmmh… In this world he operates Will we love until forever? His targets, he picks them wisely And doesn’t care at all Everlasting fraud Taught me love is lies Everlasting fraud Be fast and Catch him if you can! Mmmh… Aaahh… Oh my beloved one How far could he, how far did he go? Oh my dear Self How could I not see The games he played indeed? And how deep did he even go? Did he even dig? Oh my Dear Oh Dear! Everlasting fraud Taught me love is lies Everlasting fraud Be fast and Catch him if you can! Everlasting fraud Taught me love is lies Everlasting fraud Be fast and Catch him if you can Catch him if you Catch him Catch him If you can!

You’re dull You’re flat You’re tiring And make me crave relief (e-o-o) Time doesn’t move Can’t touch it, oh What bit of irony! (e-o-e-o-e-e) You please You cure You free my mind That’s trapped by paradigms (e-o-o) In lack of stimulation A creative delight (e-o-e-o-e-e) What paradox! (Enjoy blank space) What paradox! (Don’t fill it up) What paradox! (Get bored by choice!) I say I’m bored I’m bored I’m bored I’m bored, I’m bored, I’m bored! There’s room for pictures, symbols What about the flat tire? (e-o-o) Now let’s get bored Just one last time Don’t trick yourself! (e-o-e-o-e-e-e-o-e-e) What paradox! (Enjoy blank space) What paradox! (Don’t fill it up) What paradox! (Get bored by choice!) I say I’m bored! (I say) I’m bored! (I say) I’m bored! I’m bored, I’m bored, I’m bored! I wave Goodbye! (I wave) Goodbye! (I wave) Goodbye! (I wave) Come by, come by, come by!

What a B 02:08
“Just start over and over again You have to go through that same cycle A million times At least! But the more you do it The better you will get at it I really promise! Just try!!” “Mhkm, ok: What a beauty you are! With your strong eyes. Also your art is… so inspiring. Thanks a lot for… your support!”

You put me inside you In your blood and fertile goo I’m splitting up, cell by cell Designing my fontanelle I feel your strength in my veins Riding your waves of pleasures and pains I’m splitting more cells, I’m kinda bored Producing my umbilical chord I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love Imma love ya, don’t want no other mother It’s starting to get tight I’m starting to want space Wanting to see the light and your beautiful face Twisting and turning round Kicking into your womb And I’m screaming out loud: LET ME OUT! I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love I’m a lover, don’t want no other mother I’m going into position, head down first Mentally preparing for my squished outburst Building up loads of adrenalin Practicing my greeting-grin Everything is black Everything is red Everything is blue And I’m calling you Everything is bright Everything is white and red I’m on your bed I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love Imma love ya, don’t want no other mother I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love Imma love ya I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love I’m in love in love, I’m in love in love I’m a lover, don’t want no other mother

Too Safe 04:08
Their crumpled spines and crippled postures Their heavy heads from looking down night and day Their vertebrae sticking out of their backs like dragon spikes Their bony fingers petting their small creations Giving pushes where they’re needed to sustain the rotation Keep 'em turning Turning, turning Hoonah, hoonah, hoonah, hoonah-ha Hoondah, hoonah, oonnah, hoondah-ha Hoondah, oondah, oondah, oona-haaaa Their small games, creations Consist of a person Who repeats one thing Like the woman who runs in circles ‘cause of two right feet Like planet man who re-dips his orbs into color The creatures say: “Be safe, be safe, be safe Aaaah” They say: “Be safe, be safe, be safe Aaaah” “Continue As I’m keeping you going round in The Well-Known Continue (A circle in a circle in a) As I’m telling you that you’re safe in (Circle in a circle) Your safety zone” (What is my role? Where am I in the game? Am I my own person or am I the same?) Crumpled spines, heavy heads, dragon spikes Aaaah, aaaah In exuberance They’re addicted to The Perpetual Bony fingers are petting their small creations Aaaah, aaaah Giving pushes, sustaining rotation Aaaah, aaaah As they watch their games Turning round and round They themselves are being watched too (Aaaah, aaaah) Aaaah, aaaah Hoonah, oonah, hoonah, oonah-ha (Be safe) Be safe, be safe, oonah-ha (Aaaah) Be safe, be safe, oonah-ha (Aaaah) Keep on turning, oonah-ha (Be safe) “Continue As I’m keeping you going round in The Well-Known Continue As I’m telling you that you’re safe in Your safety zone” Where am I in the game? (Too safe, too safe, too safe) Where am I in the game? (Too safe, too safe, too safe) Where am I in the game? Should I break out or should I push replay? (Too safe, too safe, too safe) Should I break out or should I push replay? (Too safe, too safe, too safe) “Continue (A circle in a circle in) As I’m keeping you going round in (A circle in a circle in a circle in) The Well-Known (What is my role? Where am I in the game?) Continue (A circle in a circle) As I’m telling you: you are safe in (A circle in a circle) Your safety zone” (What is my role? Where am I in the game? Am I my own or am “Continue As I’m keeping you going round in (In a circle in a circle in a circle in) The Well-Known (What is my role? Where am I?) Continue As I’m telling you: you are safe in Your safety zone” (What is my role? Where am I in the game? Am I my own or am I the same?)

Magnolia 03:22
Magnolia, Magnolia The wind was wise, the wind was wise It taught me life, it taught me death It took my mother’s final breath Magnolia, I’ll wait for you Magnolia, when do you bloom? Morning came, morning took The last page of her book Sea splashing, tears of compassion Old selves Buried with my mother’s peace of mind Magnolia, Magnolia The time was wise, the time was wise The night will come, the night will spread I’ll plant a worm in this dirt bed Now I strap you on my back Your weight upon my innocence I walk until your buds will rupture The wind at my back will show me fertile earth Magnolia, Magnolia The night will come, the night will spread The time was wise, the time was true When will you bloom? I’ll wait for you!

about

Marena Whitcher and Andrina Bollinger transform everyday life into a sonic playground. Collecting sounds like shells on the beach or dead insects on the hot summer asphalt, the duo of multi-instrumentalists use their field recordings to create samples and beats that serve as the raw ingredients of their studio album «Open Other Doors.» By means of elaborately crafted rhythms that accompany a capricious dance of dueling vocal organs, Eclecta refract our perception of musicality, breaking it prismatically into cubes of reflection that direct our gaze towards otherness, and yet hypnotically induce a mood of interiority. Eclecta open undiscovered doors, vocalizing their thoughts, pondering in cycles: from pleasure to pain, blooming to withering, coming to birth, leaving by death, re-entering by the force of fate. The tethered velocity of dual bodies, their organs and extremities, seem to have one only purpose: to gift us with music.
