LISTENER AS OPERATOR

January 22nd, 2009

Found sound is recorded. Interference at the end of the scale. There are no instruments. Nothing is crafted or selected for performance. There is no beginning or end.

Garbage People

January 22nd, 2009

This text is about the homoeopathic distribution of terror as a technique of control. It is also about techniques of resistance in the context of an increasingly totalitarian western world that seems to solidify in a total presence of surveillance, discipline and control.

Garbage People

In a world like ours where the state will get away with mass killings and the media cover it (up) all the way, one cannot but feel a certain relief when someone, anyone interrupts the flow of violence and directs it back at power. [Read more →]
