Self-Organizing Sound, the Technology Fetish, and the Smooth/Stepped Generator



Published
self-organizing systems allow circuits to interfere with each other and organize themselves into musical structures. this is a bottom-up approach to music making that stands in opposition to the top-down hierarchical structures of 'generative music'

in this video i describe the marxist conception of the technology fetish and how it creates an illusion in the capitalist class of technology as a progressive force leading to utopia. the elon musks of the world use this fetish to greenwash their accumulation of wealth and exploitation of the planet

here, i try to imagine how we might use synthesizers to create analogies of distributed, democratic economic systems
