After Hour. 1997.

I think one of the important evolutions is that we no longer feel compulsively the need to argue, or to justify things on a kind of rational level. We are much more willing to admit that certain things are completely instinctive and others are really intellectual. – Rem Koolhaas

note: Remember the late 90′s? It was the peak of popular electronic music in big label. Even Aphex Twin was signed by Warner to produce an abstract work like Druqs. Name like Authecre, Amon Tobim, The Orb was popping out on both side of atlantic, with UK leading the output. Powerful computer software was available for the first time to everybody with little money to start experimenting just like Brian Eno. Electronica moves beyond simple dubbing and LP sampling and into tweaking the actual soundwave digitally. Exciting time, if not somewhat obscure. Moka is building a giant decade size list, maybe I should make a little side list for electronica while she is yelling at me for not helping. :P heh. Anyway, here is a short electronica list from the 90′s. Without going too far into the crazy bleep land.

    no, I don’t do social networking site. Don’t really have time to keep the pages fresh (do’t even have time to clean up my email), on top of that my net paranoia side says “no”.

    Moka has a myspace page, not sure if she still keep up with it.

    I remember getting that Peace Orchestra album with a little elastoplast on the front

The song makes its imprint
in the air, making itself felt,
a felt world. Here, there,
the stunned silence

of knowing I will not remember
what I heard;

futures that will never happen,
a fluidity we cannot achieve
except as a child
creating possibility.

This is the untranslatable song
hidden in the earth.
