In addition to the already classic relation between sound and image in the live performance, Rokolectiv questions the relation between electronic music genres and socio-cultural codes. In the Romanian context, electronic music is still perceived as a division of different genres, each with their own urban and social codes and a very segregated public. This particular situation is quite specific to the local scene and is usually not to be found internationally. The new program of Rokolectiv reflects the current tendencies of reducing the differences between codes or genres, the oppositions between experimental/p0p, dance/non-dance, analogue/digital, mainstream/alternative.
