Hysteria Dichotic is An intimate intersection between modern music, contemporary dance, modular synthesis and film.

Step into Hysteria Dichotic, a unique convergence of expression and sensory experience as modular synthesist David Castellani is joined by contemporary dancer AnnMarie Arcuri in guiding you through a captivating creative journey.


Dissolving the familiar confines of modern music and dance, Hysteria Dichotic is paired with beautiful cinematography that envelops the viewer into a visceral experience.

This is Castellani’s first collaboration with AnnMarie Arcuri. In his words:

“The interaction embodies physics in motion, as she interprets the sound generated by the modular rig and becomes a visual manifestation of the music, speaking to the transfer of electricity into kinetic energy”.

David Castellani is an aficionado in all things modular.

Born in Italy, but based in LA, since 2021 he runs his own label Noetic, which cultivates the creation of smart and dynamic techno with a focus on synthesizers and analog hardware. The label has homed seven releases from Castellani so far, featuring remixes from Redshape, Matrixxman, Voiski and Etapp Kyle.

AnnMarie Arcuri is a New York-born contemporary dancer.

She has danced/performed works by Laurence Blake, Dimitri Chamblas, Peter Chu, Rennie Harris, Wayne McGregor, and Spenser Theberge. As a motion capture artist, she has worked on Coldplay’s ‘My Universe’ and holds down a professional position for AMGI Animation studios.
