Here’s the latest stuff I’ve been working on…

The arsenal. Radio, 2 recorders, 4 walkmen, and an answering machine.

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 failure: so much modern art is the sound of things going out of control, of a medium pushing to its limits and breaking apart. The distorted guitar sound is the sound of something too loud for the medium supposed to carry it. The blues singer with the cracked voice is the sound of an emotional cry too powerful for the throat that releases it. The excitement of grainy film, of bleached-out black and white, is the excitement of witnessing events too momentous for the medium assigned to record them.

Here is the first demo(?) or final product from a new podcast(? eventually ?) / cassette series I am starting. Had deja vu the entire time I wrote this. Even now. More later.


Glitch artists
Come and go
But it’s nice
To see those
Still around
Taking their
Digital destruction

If your art doesn’t make you a little crazy, you are doing it wrong..

A start.

Conrad Jon Godly (Switzerland)

An inner knowledge of the essence of mountains grows in us when we look at Godly’s paintings. And it is precisely such internalized knowledge of the mountains that the Swiss artist has continually brought on to the canvas. Godly paints such works exclusively, basically always the same - pictures of mountains in all kinds of weather, sometimes only of rocks formations, big, small, very big and very small paintings - and nothing else really. (cf. What is a mountain? by Philipp Meier)
