WTM #1012: The World Under The Visible One

Wreck This Mess / Ethno-Illogical Psycho-Radiographies

Radio Patapoe 88.3 ~ Amsterdam ~ 31 maart 2008 // 17.00-19.00

“Nature is a word I never use; I think everything is natural, even artificial things; it’s a different kind of nature. Not everything that’s natural is wonderful as anyone who eats the leaves of the hemlock will easily find out. I don’t associate with any group; maybe no group will associate with me. I think the 60s was a search for community because American society has none; it has small groups organized to exploit small groups – and then larger groups. At first anarchism has to be an attitude; it starts with disrespect for institutions. If you have a general disrespect, you might slight something worthwhile.”

Automatic Writing > Robert Ashley [Automatic Writing / Lovely Music]o Note to myself: No headphones, can’t cue, should be interesting ad hoc improv. This is the vexing thing here at Patapoe. Because it is a moveable feast [or trashbin] and is never comforted or burdened by the concept of permanence the studio is always like one of those dark forgotten corners in a city where garbage blows up and late night revellers urinate. Some interesting flyers, grafitti is also left behind but the equipment suffers. It is already fragile, out of fashion, barely working, ancient, donated, hooked and connected in strange ways so that there are loose cables and you have to jiggle the plugs to get sound flowing through the output. I am unsure if this weekly pilgrimage here keeps young, flexible, thinking on your feet, able to improvise OR whether this doesn’t age you prematurely because of the sometimes high levels of stress involved in trying to figure out the arcane mysterious new set up.

o Note to deal with feelings of fading ether glory: We are the recyclers of sound, reusing what is already out there in a world crammed full of too much idle sound, sound that yearns for attention at the behest of its maker and many of these sounds do not need to be, in fact, we would be better off without them [but this goes for the music already out there for years as well]. what I mean is, we are dealing with / suffering from an over-abundance of music and sound. And it is our task [need] to make sense of it, give it shape, create a pattern a narrative of sorts for all of this EXPRESSION. There is so much of it that everywhere you go has its own soundtrack and so the mall, the sporting event, the park all have their “DJs'” defining and determining what we should be hearing and thus determining how we experience the everyday. I resent this and am myself a radio DJ. I resent it because most of it is a commercial sham and most of it reeks of cliché of the stimulation of consuming impulses etc.

“Leave the old and dying America and use your creative energies to help form a new America, which would be demilitarized, more humanistic, where the police are less hostile and closer to the community, where the wealthy are not given unleashed power for the exploitation of the people, and mostly because it’s now a matter of life and death, reassert an ecological balance with the environment, which means the people in the oil companies and the car companies and the space industry will have to be brought into account, so there will be a new definition of government which has to be closer to the people and less close to special interests which are far more harmful than any revolutionaries.
