The word “tuning,” as in the tuning of a car, is subject to many preconceived notions. One can often hear a drifter refusing it, then considering it again, accepting the Anglo-Saxon origin of the term: the tuning that adjusts, attunes, fixes.
Amour Drift invites the audience to listen to these passionate enthusiasts of hybridisation talking about car culture and the time spent perfecting, improving, and modifying - gradually and manually - their machine’s body and heart. It resonates with a relation to working-class cultures, industrial objects, craft actions, performative obsessions, and meticulous actions.
Drift (from drifting): a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers and skids, being as impressive as possible.
Tuning: The set of modifications made to a vehicle to improve its performance. In music, it is the action of adjusting the pitch of one or many tones from musical instruments to establish typical intervals between these tones.“
