TEARS ARE THE DIAMONDS OF SOUL
FOOTWORK/HOUSE/IDM/TECHNO // WORK IN PROGRESS
In 2019 Ryterski started his project Tears are the Diamonds of Soul, which is a mixture of footwork, house, idm, techno and voguing music. During his live acts, Ryterski juxtapose his original tracks with selected pop songs considered as gay anthems.
I was trying to find an answer, if music has gender. Why some songs are considered as gay or feminine, while the others can be described as masculine? In the end, we should only care about music. So Tears… is this kind of music, which tries to to utilize elements from both end of the spectrum. Because man can cry and music is non-binary.
Tears are the Diamonds of Soul shows are based on interaction with the audience - Ryterski dances, lip-syncs and generally try to entertain the audience as much as it’s possible, doing the unexpected, like having a breathing session in the middle of his set or bringing pizza to the audience. His shows also involve visualizations, created by Ryterski himself and/or Aleksandra Ołdak.
