Durchgeknallte Maschinen: Kapital, Staat und Faschismus. (Buchveröffentlichung)

(10.September) „Ab einem gewissen Zeitraum in der Historie des Kapitalismus war das Kapital nicht mehr zufrieden damit, mit dem Staat und seinen Kriegsmaschine eine gleichberechtigte Allianz aufrechtzuerhalten. Die Konstruktion einer eigenen Kriegsmaschine durch das Kapital integrierte den Staat, seine politische, militärische und symbolische Souveränität und all seine administrativen Apparate und modifizierte sie unter den Imperativen des finanziellen Kapitals. Die Ausdehnung der Kapitalisierung auf den ganzen Planeten, leichtgläubig »Globalisierung« genannt, tendiert heute zum Zusammenbruch der staatlichen Souveränität, zumindest drängt sie zu einer globalen Governance ohne Souveränität, ohne dass aber die Staaten von der Bildfläche verschwinden würden“.

Sehnsucht nach der Einsamkeit

(20.Juni) «Ich denke oft darüber nach, wie sich das Leben auf der Erde in einer endlosen Folge von Zufall und Notwendigkeit entwickelt hat. Ein blutiges Würfelspiel hat die Erde geformt und formt sie noch. ‹Trial and error› ist seine einzige Regel. Milliarden sind bereits in diesem Spiel um Nahrung und Fortpflanzung gestorben; andere haben gewonnen und die Welt mit ihren schludrigen Kopien bevölkert.(…)

Album of the Day: bod [包家巷], “Limpid Fear [清澈恐惧]”

(…)But Nicholas Zhu, aka bod [包家巷], has a markedly different approach on their latest album, Limpid Fear [清澈恐惧]. Rather than bludgeoning us with an onslaught of neo-industrial throbs, or drowning us in distortion, with their latest record, Zhu actually finds a cautious sense of calm.

„Alles geheim. Natürlich“

… 2015 kamen Die Toten Hosen, nachdem Ihre Scheune abgebrannt war …

Das war ein Brandanschlag. Es gab in dieser Zeit unheimlich viele Übergriffe und Brandanschläge, unter anderem auf unsere große Scheune. Birgit und ich haben in der Brandnacht Pressemitteilungen geschrieben. Am nächsten Morgen kam das in den Nachrichten, abends sogar in der »Tagesschau«.

Die Telefone standen nicht mehr still. Ständig haben irgendwelche Spinner angerufen: Recht so! Aufs Maul! Ihr seid keine richtigen Deutschen! Und dann auf einmal: Schönen guten Tag, hier ist das Management der Toten Hosen. Da hab ich erst mal gelacht.

The Mask of Anarchy – Written on the occasion of the massacre at Manchester.

‘Every woman in the land
Will point at them as they stand—
They will hardly dare to greet
Their acquaintance in the street.

‘And the bold, true warriors
Who have hugged Danger in wars
Will turn to those who would be free,
Ashamed of such base company.

‘And that slaughter to the Nation
Shall steam up like inspiration,
Eloquent, oracular ;
A volcano heard afar.

‘And these words shall then become
Like Oppression’s thundered doom
Ringing through each heart and brain.
Heard again—again—again—

‘Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number—
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you—
Ye are many—they are few.’

Lie Symmetry by Aperus

„I first heard the term “Lie Symmetry” on the radio segment „Finding Beautiful Symmetry Near Absolute Zero“. There, physicist Alan Tennant described his study of transitions in the quantum states of deeply cooled ions – “when water goes from ice to liquid, there are transitions between these states. At the exact point where you change from one state to another, that’s where you get the really important stuff … In fact, [these transitions] are quite beautiful. The quantum aspect of the system provides a kind of a simplification, an extra layer of order that you wouldn’t expect.” This order or symmetry is known as E8 or Lie Symmetry“.

A rapper from Gaza is about to drop one of the most groundbreaking albums of the year

Step 25 is possibly the biggest Palestinian music album for years. Nobody’s done an album with 25 songs and more than 70 artists participating in it. The album is a mix of genres, but led by a rapper [MC Gaza]. It has more than 15 types of music with 25 subjects. Step 25 is all about what we are living through in Palestine; society, politics, humanity and even some fun subjects are in the album.
I made Step 25 all by myself, with my own power and three years of hard working. Nobody sponsored it. But this is why I made a fundraising campaign – so I can share it to the people of the world. I hope everyone will help and support the album.

Orbit by Snorri Hallgrímsson

The album sees Hallgrímsson expanding his classical background with elements from electronica, choral traditions, and film music. The result is a stunning blend of haunting strings, distorted beats, intimate pianos, and the composer’s own enveloping voice. The album features strings performed by the Budapest Art Orchestra and engineering/mixing by Addi 800 (Björk, Sigur Rós).

Michael becomes increasingly frustrated by overzealous mourning relatives and well-meaning army bureaucrats.

Fight Score by Machinefabriek

Description: Stirring up a sea of texture, ‚FIGHT Score‘ is intensely focussed, powerful and concentrated. The music here has a claustrophobic feel, at times reminiscent of a John Carpenter soundtrack for all its otherworldly complexities. This new 10” illustrates just how masterful Machinefabriek is these days. Cinematic drones and glacial structures.

Fantasia Incantata by Ensemble Libro Primo / Sabine Stoffer / Alex McCartney

Veterum Musica UK
released February 1, 2018
Stylus Phantasticus represents a form of liberty in the composition of instrumental music. The style does not confine the composer’s imagination or force it to abide by strict rules. This way of writing instrumental music can be difficult to define using common structures and forms of the early 17th Century. In this case, the composer’s will to write down and structure their ideas was a natural conveyance of a highly elaborate improvisatory performance practice.

Puzzled by Westworld? Look to Shakespeare.

When we interpret the show against The Tempest’s obsession with control and freedom, Westworld becomes not a “bootless inquisition,” as Miranda, the daughter of Prospero, describes her own questions, but an assertion of a basic truth: The human soul only attains its full value through freedom, which is attained through a series of choices freely made by captors and captives alike.
