Sampling-in-der-letzten-Instanz (Ultrablack of Music 6)

18 Dez , 2018  

Eine Rhythmacht ist instabil, ihre Theorie ist auf das Ereignis bezogen, sodass die Axiome der Nicht-Musikologie immer vorläufig sind, während gleichzeitig ihre theoretische Praxis von den Samples abhängig ist, die zur Verfügung stehen, und zugleich durch die Schaffung neuer Samples überprüfbar wird. Die Rhythmacht wird durch die axiomatische Anti-Kausalität des ...

Noise (Ultrablack of Music 2)

5 Dez , 2018  

Was ist Noise? Auf der einen Seite ist er beobachter-relativ, sodass man ihn durch technische Systeme, die seine Grade der Randomness bzw. der algorithmischen Funktionen beobachten, messen kann, auf der anderen Seite ist er beobachter-unabhängig, wenn er als radikale Kontingenz oder als Hyperchaos definiert wird. Noise bleibt hier gegenüber jeder ...

Deleuze/Guattari und der Schizo-Attraktor (Ultrablack of Music 1)

30 Nov , 2018  

Für Gilles Deleuze befindet sich die Kunst in einer ständigen Spannung, insofern sie zwischen den Polen Chaos und Ordnung oszilliert und ständig zu schizophrenen Aktualisierungen kommen muss, wenn sie aus der Triangulation ausbrechen will. Diese negentropische Metastabilität nimmt bei Deleuze die Form der inklusiven Disjunktion (weder … noch/ dieses oder ...

Mille Plateaux: The Ultrablackness of Clicks & Cuts

29 Nov , 2018  

Clicks & Cuts

With Deleuze or Boulez we can speak of rhythm in terms of non-periodic clicked music. There is a transversal disjunction, which is articulated in the track intern and in relation to other tracks, and this achievs the transition of „Clicks and Cuts“. Transversality is originally a topological ...

Bienoise – Most Beautiful Design (Mille Plateaux 1)

16 Nov , 2018  

“Whatever you now find weird, ugly, uncomfortable and nasty about a new medium will surely become its signature. CD distortion, the jitteriness of digital video, the crap sound of 8-bit – all of these will be cherished and emulated as soon as they can be avoided. It’s the sound of ...

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, ...

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 ...

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 ...

Black Accelerationism

1 Nov , 2017  

 

If accelerationism has a key idea, it is that it is either impossible or undesirable to resist or negate the development of the commodity economy coupled with technology. Rather, it has to be pushed harder and faster, that it has to change more rather than less.

It is an ...

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 ...

Wie man mit und gegen Nietzsche eine Musikbox für Blackness herstellt, die kein Vorspiel mehr zu einer- tieferen – mächtigeren – vielleicht böseren – und geheimnisvolleren Musik, sondern diese selbst ist: eine Nicht-Musik oder eine Musik-Utopie.

A) Nietzsche und die Musik

Technodeleuze e Mille Plateaux

… Il primo motivo dell’importanza dell’azione di Szepanski, dunque, è legato al movimento verso l’esterno della filosofia deleuziana – un pensiero-rostro che uncina l’ electro , la ciberne- tica, così già predisposto nella sua stessa essenza astratta. Ne-gli anni novanta, infatti, si trattava di collegare tale gesto alle istanze artistiche ...

Passing now from the genus to the species, I have to denounce as the most inexcusable and scandalous noise the truly infernal cracking of whips in the narrow resounding streets of towns; for it robs life of all peace and pensiveness.
