Genesis Breyer P-Orridge: Write Your Own Code. A film by Carl Abrahamsson, Sweden, 2021, 47 mins.
As Genesis and I were working on the documentary film “Change Itself” (released in 2016), we agreed that it would be great to also have Genesis reading poetry in the film. One clip was eventually used. “Write Your Own Code” contains all of the material we shot in Oslo, Norway, 2014. These sessions also became the creative ignition for the spoken word album we made together in 2017, and which was released in 2019 by Ideal Recordings: “Loyalty Does Not End With Death.” I have left the casual tone of the sessions, including some mishaps, as untouched as possible. Write Your Own Code! – Carl Abrahamsson, 2021
