Mille Plateaux – Ultrablackness of Music

21 Aug , 2018  

Project for book & compilation: Ultrablackness of Music

When we look back it seems that Mille Plateaux was always dark. We never confirmed techno-utopism, accelerationism or Eshuns afrofuturism. Rhythm, not speed was the term. As we wrote: »If Rhythm is distinct from metrics, we enter the field of non-frequency politics, ...

Roots and Wires

1 Jun , 2018  

Deleuze and Guattari’s new concept of rhythm, repeated by the first wave of commentators, is then very European, white, masculine,  academic and elitist. It will be only in the 1990s, that Achim Szepanski, Kodwo Eshun and Erik Davis will update the minor sound lines with the revolutionary nucleus of rhizomatic ...

Techno-Kunst und Derivat

30 Mai , 2018  

Laut McKenzie Wark fungiert das Kunstwerk heute als ein Derivat seiner Simulation. (Wark 2016) Wir würden eher sagen, es fungiert in seiner Verbreitungsweise und Diskursivierung ähnlich einem Derivat. Es gibt verschiedene Arten der Simulation; es kann ein MP3 sein, das mit einem Text an ein Label verschickt wird. Das Label ...

Has Techno Decelerated? On Technoculture, Acceleration and Breaks

19 Mai , 2018  

Reflecting on the last thirty years of techno music, I am not alone thinking that it has decelerated. By deceleration, I mean that since the 1980s the beat per minutes of techno music – which varies, usually, between 120 and 160 bpm – slowed in pace. Techno has become somehow ...

Pop und Kulturindustrie. Eine heitere Symbiose.

15 Apr , 2018  

Wenn im Pop heute alles Retro ist, dann braucht man sich gerade in Deutschland nicht zu wundern, dass Versatzstücke des Antisemitismus integraler Bestandteil des Pop sind. Während der postnazistische Deutsche die Resultate des Nationalsozialismus noch in der Form des Büßers verarbeitet, der aus der Erfahrung der Vergangenheit gelernt haben und ...

Non-Musicology (from) Rhythm

25 Feb , 2018  

A sequence of non-musicological praxis corresponding to phases of Non-musicology:

Marked by a rebellious apprenticeship in experimental music, the first period of non-musicological praxis is not thoroughly non-musical. Throughout Musicology ?, terribly uncreative secondary works of experimental music were composed.

The unexpected discovery of ‘The Principle of Musical Sufficiency’ occurred ...

Manifesto for future ambient

15 Feb , 2018  

Ambient is a music of lived moments.

Ambient recognizes control must be forgone with respect to how the music is encountered (but not how it is composed).

Ambient is experientially discrete, but not musically so.

Ambient acknowledges the deceit that is the promise of repetition.

Ambient is never only music ...
