From The Daily Dish. This one is worth sharing, and very much cleverer than the average art school project…


By the way, the music, which I like even though techno pop is generally not my cup of tea, is by Royksopp.  Here’s a link to the video page at their site.

So…I went and looked and listened around.  Truly the video is more interesting than the music.  In the Deadline piece, they at least had a harmonic change thrown in at one point.  A lot of the music just repeats the same thing over and over and over…

There is a problem implicit in using too many primitive 21st century thinking machines while writing music.  The music gets locked in as code in an embryonic 21st century computer, and never has a chance to self-organize in the mature technological environment of the human bio-computer – which, after all, has been evolving for thousands, nay – millions of generations (if you count apes and early mammals and reptiles and whatever else we’ve evolved from all the way back to the most primitive self-organized nervous systems…)

Oh well.
