Differenzproduktion und sich verwertenden Wert. -Die Geldform kann nicht logisch aus ...

29 Apr , 2017  

April 2013: Darth Vader proudly presents her first unpluged piano track @IVI-club (squatted since 2003). The performance was crossed by oldschool-techno-freaks (copyriot honx) with Roland TR-505 and TB-303. By hacking in the PA, they got a technoid hegemony over the sound-architecture in the space.
