a decade's dust. witness the rise and fall, a civilization's worth of creative tools and machinery. the sediment of a lost heaven, universal shipwreck. ten years ago while traveling i came upon an old copy of jacques lacarriere's _the gnostics_, a strange attractor. weird poetic phrases resonated, a body of unfinished recordings grew. each attached to a place or person or moment. what is finishing, anti-enlightenment, knowing more but actually less. war and nutrition, intervening archons: operating systems, social media, techno-utopianism. blurry realities blocking the path forward, looking beyond, no path. just here. an embodying and not dividing force, the ash and the stars.

I love the way Dan Derks describes the instruments and their qualities; I can listen out for exactly what he's talking about. His acknowledgement of his collaborators is also really generous and indicates a cool person. mitgui
