2500, ordine geometrico demonstrata
There is no mind-machine duality. Mind thinks through the machine and the machine thinks through mind. Mind acts through the machine and the machine acts through the mind. Mind is erased in the machine and the machine is erased into mind.
2500, Ordine geometrico demonstrata comprises the audio output of a series of attempts to both erase myself in/through an ARP 2500 modular synthesiser and vice versa. Rather than experimenting with uncanny strategies (as I did in the Buchla or the Marinos Koutsomichalis è stato eliminato projets), I herein zero in the fundamentals–carefully thought-of configurations, long rudimentary forms, monophonic audio, limited interaction.
The project resulted in approximately 4½ hours of audio, in 6 parts: Corpus non terminatur cogitatione nec cogitatio corpore, Essentia existentiam est existens, Omnia quæ sunt in alio sunt, Omnis substantia est infinita, Substantia prior est natura suis affectionibus, Unumquodque æternam et infinitam essentiam exprimit.
