Mosiah: A Red Tape in Future Time

“RED TAPE” (for short) is a sound project by DJ Zanj Rracc’s in commemoration of
Marcus Garvey’s earth day for August 17 2020. It is a haunting hollow of electronic static
that briefly redesigns the history of the future. It passes through the insignificance of past
realities that have become severe experiences today. “RED TAPE” is a lost voice
reverberating with nuisance, a loss of the last feelings of clarity as to what really is; and
what really is, has now become just another theory about the world.
