Ultrablack of Music / Vorwort – Technokulturen, unmenschliche Rhythmusmächte und das Ultra-Schwarz der Nicht- Musik

16 Mrz , 2020  

“Blitze explodieren zwischen verschiedenen Intensitäten, aber ihnen geht ein unsichtbarer, nicht wahrnehmbarer, dunkler Vorbote voraus, der ihren Weg im Voraus determiniert, aber (wie eine Gravur) in umgekehrter Richtung. Ebenso enthält jedes System seinen dunklen Vorboten,
der die Kommunikation der peripheren Serien gewährleistet. Wie wir sehen werden, wird diese Rolle, angesichts ...

MP8 John-Robin Bold (Mille Plateaux)

Where do we find a point of such realization of a social that it is also the point of its collapse? It’s exactly like the stereophonic effect. We are all obsessed – and not only in music – with high fidelity; obsessed with the quality ...

Sound of the Abyss

And from here we move yet another step, to a third type of sound. As one of the NASA scientists notes, in order to have enough galaxies in the universe to produce this sound, ‘you’d have to pack them into the universe like sardines […] There wouldn’t be any space ...

How to create with and against Nietzsche a music box for blackness that is no longer a prelude to a deeper – more powerful – perhaps more evil – and more mysterious music, but the music itself: a non-music or a music utopia.

10 Nov , 2019  

A) Nietzsche and the music

Nietzsche’s work Die Geburt der Tragödie deals in depth with music. The book explains that the tragedy originated in the dithyrambos, where lyric poetry was danced and entered into the drama in which music was given the task of tuning the soul into the tragedy ...

ALTER- : A REACTION TO THE ALTERMODERNISM IN SOUND ART

6 Nov , 2019  

For the Automatisme – Alter- album. I am inspired by how the art historian Nicolas Bourriaud is defining the Altermodernism. Bourriaud is understanding the term “Alter” as a way to mean “other”. The altermodernism would be another modernity that is different from the avant-garde modernism and post-modernism. More precisely, this ...

Blackness in der Musik (Ultrablack of Music 11)

21 Jan , 2019  

Politische Musik ist eine Musik ohne Worte (im doppelten Sinn). Sie orientiert sich nicht an der Welt (sie hat kein Objekt in der Welt, das sie einfängt), noch ist sie eine Frage der Perzeption. Politische Musik indiziert eine Nicht-Welt der puren Auto-Impression. Sie ist radikal schwarz.

Was Laruelle als immanent ...

Vermutlich gibt es, wie Randy Martin ausgeführt hat, einige paradoxe Analogien von Tanz und Finanz aufzuzählen; ...

Rhythmächte (Ultrablack of Music 5)

16 Dez , 2018  

Die sich auf den französischen Philosophen François Laruelle beziehende Nicht-Musikologie benutzt die klassische Musikwissenschaft und die existierende Musik allenfalls als Material. Und auch die Nicht-Musiker beginnen damit, die Diskurse der Wissenschaft und die Musik auf reines Material zu reduzieren, um in der Interaktion mit dem Hören-im-Rhythmus neue pulsierende Rhythmusmächte zu ...

Utopia Robotz (Video)

24 Nov , 2018  

For this video Alberto told me he had something wave-ish in mind. I also had quite similar impressions. The track Utopia Robotz feels blury and like a big field of nearly invisible turbulence. For me it describes more an environment than telling you a literal story, it is more like ...

21 Nov , 2018  

It seems fitting, then, that with the “speed” and proliferation of music, artists, and new labels, as well as a “do-it-yourself” mode of production enabled by the new technologies, and the lack of an adequate rhetoric to explain, describe, and theorize the new developments in the music, that Mille Plateaux ...

Mille Plateaux – Ultrablackness of Music

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, ...
