Hello everyone! I’m writing just this quick update so that I can type my vague thoughts down. It’s almost 6 AM and I’ve just finished reading “Postmodern Music/Postmodern Thoughts”. I can’t believe I could be so excited by such a topic – things make so much sense now, I feel I have a concrete methodological background.
Circuit-bending is a postmodern process of popular music: performance, actual process, experience, chance, different aesthetics, culture of listening, deconstruction, these are all key concepts. Question: is there a nostalgic feeling when creating/playing a bent instrument? A memory of the past musics? Or not? I’m very curious about this.
There are plenty more things on my mind but I cannot express them. Brain damage… btw, check Bendoverboysfriends if you don’t know them.
I’m almost done with books – still got my lovely Bent DVDs to watch and also, read Neural’s back issues.
I hope I will finish my draft by next week… :S
