Ritornello is a concatenation between The Disintegration Loops, a track by William Basinski, and a few pop songs.
Pop music creates boundaries of a specific culture, a slang and legible music. When this kind of music hurts the movement, something happens in dance, maybe dance itself happens. Transition from Basinski to pop tracks is a dark corner, something that can’t be ignored but at the same time it isn’t important. Body knows that something has changed and gets aware of it as a fact.
Refrain is the main element of a song, the evocative part which gives the access to a mutual language by memorisation. The imagination baggage of the song, overlapping the movement, empty and release the dance which gets ephemeral and meaningless.
