Also known as ‘National-Rant-Writers-Moment’. (You too can participate when the urge hits.) My current rant-why do Ambient recording artists think it is accecptable to introduce pops, clicks, static or scratchy noises into their digitally recorded work? DJs and program directors are as much at fault by placing them into their playlists. If I wanted to hear a crapped up performance I would pick up some much abused vinyl LP from a flea market! I like my Ambient a la Eno, non-intrusive and free of irritation, thank you very much.
Though not a true student nor a follower of any authority on the topic, I’m still intrigued with the idea of distributed consciousness/unconsciousness. Specifically, is the instability I feel on occasion a result of problems affecting the greater (un)consciousness that make their way out to my insignificant brain or is it my own personal problem? If mine alone, does the larger mind sense I’m coming unhinged?
