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 ...

Pegida-Pop: Hirn ausschalten, Bier aufmachen!

26 Jan , 2018  

Die Legende, dass unsere Musik, unsere Filme, unsere Comics automatisch mit dem Progressiven, Sozialen und Liberalen, mit der Verbesserung der Welt verbunden sein müssten, mit dem Geschmack von Freiheit, Gerechtigkeit und Geschwisterlichkeit – diese Legende haben wir schon seit geraumer Zeit begraben. In beinahe jedem musikalischen Genre, jeder Mode, jedem ...

Dromology, Bolidism and Marxist Accelerationism. Fragments of Communism Between al-Khwarizmi and Mach

21 Dez , 2017  

Dromology, Bolidism and Marxist accelerationism, an odd text by Obsolete Capitalism written in the summer of 2015, represents the first endeavor in the speculative philosophical sphere known by the equally eccentric name of “accelerationism”. The main source of the book is Matteo Pasquinelli’s Algoritmi del Capitale (Ombre Corte, 2014), followed ...

God Only Knows What Devils We Are: An Apopologia for the Black Bloc from the Community of those who do not have a Community.

4 Sep , 2017  

What they find so disturbing about the black bloc—the contagion of an anonymous collective force—is precisely why and how it continues to outlive every social movement from which it emerges. These generations—we who fantasized about Columbine and now only know metal detectors at school; we who expected September 11 and ...

Foraminifederalogie contra Non-Ökonomie. Teil 2: Bedingungsloser Grundbesitz, spekulativer Kommunismus und politische Negativierung

7 Aug , 2017  

Anna Newspeak: Wir wollten noch näher über Derivate-Kommunismus und bedingungslosen Grundbesitz sprechen. Was ist für dich der sogenannte Derivate-Kommunismus?

Achim Szepanski: A-Mathematisch wird der Derivate-Kommunismus folgendermaßen angeschrieben: Eine komplexe Zahl besitzt zwei Teile: einen realen Teil und einen imaginären Teil, so zum Beispiel 2 + 3i. Wenn man in der ...

Paradroid-Alien Musik aus der n-ten Dimension

29 Jun , 2017  

Während Kraftwerk noch die Kraftquellen der Industrialisierung anzapfen musste, saugt Paradroid die Informationsflüsse der Kommunikationsindustrien auf, dreht sich durch das digitale Equipment, um sie als clickende, entropische und nonsequenzielle Sequenzen, bei denen das nächste Pattern nicht weiß, was das erste war, als total nervöse Sounds und als angedeutete Strings auszuspucken. ...

Dead Detroit Lies Dreaming: Techno (Anti-) Accelerationism

24 Mai , 2017  

Detroit may not be dead, but the corpse has already been consumed. Detroit is the site for symmetrical fantasies of dystopian social collapse and urban disintegration, on the one hand, and utopian urban gardening and the ‘greening’ of post-Fordism, on the other. It forms a type of national sacrifice zone ...

Fully Automated Luxury Individualist Anarchism

12 Apr , 2017  

Revolutionary Luxury, Bureaucratic Administration

Any politics that seeks an encompassing notion of liberation and freedom must, first and foremost, be oriented towards the future, and must pursue this horizon through goal-oriented actions. This effectively sets up a feedback system, linking together the shifting and modular futurity that is assembled by ...

Accelerated Fantasies (Lapo Berti)

5 Apr , 2017  

Lapo Berti:

… I have already said how I was struck by the lack of analysis of the Accelerationist hypothesis. I also want to stress that this is the least Marxian, if not the most anti-Marxian, conduct. According to Marx the crucial effort was constituted by the critique of the ...

The Governance of the World

5 Mrz , 2017  

The hyper-industrial state of fact takes what Deleuze called control societies, founded on modulation by the mass media, into the stage of hyper-control. The latter is generated by self-produced personal data, collected and published by people themselves – whether knowingly or otherwise – and this data is then exploited by ...

Human Clay, Hardened Clay, Ordinary Stones english/german

3 Mrz , 2017  

In many respects, it would make sense to read Andrzej Steinbach’s series “Ordinary Stones” in continuity with his last work, “Figur I, Figur II”1. The works bear similarities, perhaps even obvious ones, but approaching this work via analogy would mean ignoring a key element of Steinbach’s artistic practice: the production ...

Blackness in Zeiten, in denen jeder das Ende der Welt in der Hand haben will.

16 Okt , 2016  

Version 1

Black Dada antwortet mit Grausamkeit. Entwickelt einen Geschmack für die Destruktion. Geschmack an der Destruktion einer Welt, die im Nanosekundenbereich heißgelaufen ist. Einer Welt, die mal wieder ihre Kriege hat. Manche Städte werden von Kampfflugzeugen bombardiert, andere von Kunstmessen angegriffen. Der alternative Künstler schwärmt von rhizomatischen Gärten, der ...
