Ereignis is like conceptual art created by machines to taunt us with our own mortality‘ (Russell Cuzner, The Quietus)

Ereignis (coming into view), is reached in a quasi-religious manner through an intoxicating process of self-elimination that eventually leads to the artist’s submission to the machine.

The project consists of a series of sound performances and audio pieces, all based on the raw output of the ElektronMusicStudio’s (the Swedish national centre for electronic music and sound art) Serge modular synthesizer. Employing a series of non-compositional stratagems, I attempted to “eliminate” myself so that the machine’s foundational material attributes are eventually accelerated and foregrounded.

un disque de «noise» avec une attention au détail accrue, avec cette impression de pouvoir observer les vies minuscules du son en train de se faire. A cet égard, on est bien plus dans le noise « classique » celui qui préférait un discours monophonique à un amoncellement de voies, à une polyphonie des timbres ; un discours unique, une ligne, mais d’une grande complexité qui ne paraît jamais plus agitée que, paradoxalement, dans ses moments les plus statiques. (Kasper Toeplitz, Présent Continu)
