52 mixtapes: Real is a Feeling

"You watch too many films. Too many films for real."

This week’s mixtape is inspired by… wait for it…

Deleuze!

Mainly, the maxim that “the brain is the screen” or as Gregory Flaxman puts it, “[t]his screen is a form of relation, of interchange, of mutual synthesis between the brain and the universe” and by exploring this interval, we experiment with how new realities are constantly created and composed. Hoorah!

Believe. CANT

Systems Breaking Down. Anna

Real is a Feeling. Pictureplane

Unreal. UNKLE

Open Eyes (demo). The XX

52mixtapes: A Night

"The skylines lit up at dead of night, the air-conditioning systems cooling empty hotels in the desert and artificial light in the middle of the day all have something both demented and admirable about them. The mindless luxury of a rich civilization, and yet of a civilization perhaps as scared to see the lights go out as was the hunter in his primitive night."

Jean Baudrillard

52 mixtapes :: C E R E M O N Y 

This is why events unnerve me.

Okay, so I didn’t meet my goal of 52 mixtapes in 52 weeks.

But sometimes goals are stupid, as are other meaningless ceremonial processes (cue New Years resolution speech here). Fuck your goals, fuck ceremony.
