'“We are creating a bridge between basically contrasting ideas. Between the material and the spiritual. Between classical, pop, gregorian and hard techno compositions. The music lifts the spirit and also provokes erections.”

The music has an almost mystic component, like an initiation ritual, to accompany the progress of a young woman who abandons forever the world of strict moral rules and fully enters into a career of sex and pleasures.

The key word to define the soundtrack of XXX , which proposes a critical and sarcastic view of the world of pornography, is MISCELLANEOUS, or to use pure pornographic language, GANGBANG.

The first term we use because we are up against a project where, with the collaboration of the record company SUBTERFUGE, fifteen composers of different styles are participating, each of them with their own personal view of sex. The second term we use because it redefines the idea from a provocative point of view, with the use of contrasting or opposing styles that, once mixed, or are put one in front of the other, open a new way of listening to sex

For beginners, GANGBANG is a sexual fantasy about the number of pricks a woman can wolf down, touch, and be penetrated by, similar to theatre performance and action exhibitionism.

Where the setting and the plot of XXX stirs people’s consciences, by proposing criminal acts as an alternative and non-reprehensible liberation, the show’s soundtrack instigates the same pattern of provocation by entering the abstract and thorny world of musical ideograms; from pagan to sacred, from archaic to ultramodern, from popular to elitist, from therapy to pain, from violence to relaxation, from superfluous to significant, from the cliché to the subtle, or from the digestible to the nausea.

Music has all these qualities and many more which are assumed by each individual in a different way (I have seen a man sleeping peacefully while listening to Heavy-Metal: music therapy makes me laugh), but the rules of society oblige us to put each style in its place, sacred in the cathedral and pagan in the disco. The desire of GANGBANG MUSICAL PROJECT is to subvert these rules in order to achieve a different and shocking effect, by looking for new iconoclastic formulas to suggest the atmosphere for a scene or by repositioning the spectator, at each step of the story, in other parallel ways of comprehension.

I am human, I have fears like everyone else, I buy answers but no-one sells them, I listen to Gregorian music when I fuck, I hurry to confess, I sleep alone, and I dream that I am a river of sperm, I get up and put the radio on, I hear young corpses as an example of dignity and hear their blind executioners winning elections, I buy more than I want and when I realise I hide in a sack and let myself be beaten.'
