MR. CARMACK: RED EP

In June, Carmack announced the Red EP, dropping 4 new tracks to tide us over. The EP’s out now on BitTorrent Bundle.
GRAVITAS VENTURES: ADVANTAGEOUS
Advantageous unfolds in an American city a hundred years away. It feels eerily familiar. Gwen Koh is a single mother working as a spokesperson for the Center for Advanced Health and Living. (Spoiler: definitely not as benign as it sounds.) In danger of losing her job, and her ability to support her daughter, Gwen trials a dangerous, untested Center procedure to continue her career. Advantageous intelligently investigates present-day society’s perspectives on femininity and motherhood and how they intersect with questions of beauty, surveillance and the economy.
