BACK AT IT AGAIN AT KRISPY KREME BUT EVERY TIME IT REPEATS IT SLOWS DOWN W/ DISINTEGRATION LOOPS

Disintegration Loops (after William Basinski)

I only find me in the twilit streets.
I am conflict, and conflict is within me.
In the heaviness of dreams, I hear
only the thickness of a hundred bells.
LOOK! I have fear - among other night-mares
- inside of me, that I’ve never had before.
HEAR! My trembling, like a multitude of ghosts,
phantoms over a blackened grassland
just before an evening shines its moon.
FEEL! I suffocate in the thickness
of a thousand biographies ending, smothering me,
like books in free-fall eventually burying me. Look at me!
I am that one soldier maimed,
the enemy you looked upon with disdain,
my yells of pain now only echoes on a field;
should fortune smile, it could remain
in someone’s memory. People remember the glory;
I remember the shit, piss, the stench of fear,
my future unmarked grave. Thus, call me selfish.
I only find me in the twilit streets
because I walk alone. I only find me
in the deceptive terza rima of the changing
positions and dispositions of the times.

— A. P.

i've been following you for years and you are like the person i always go to if i want to listen to new music, but this william basinski rabbit hole you got me down is like major major. i'm currently tripping acid in a ball pit listening to the disintegration loops, and i just want to thank you for making this moment possible. you are amazing, and sorry if this seems crazy

i want to frame this message and put it on my wall thanks

Ambient music for studying

I have been listening to a lot of ambient music lately and figured out that it is one of the most perfect genres for concentration & studying (for me at least). I decided to collect my favourite albums in one place to access them more easily and also to share them with anyone who is interested : )

William Basinski - d|p 1.1

From Wikipedia:

“The Disintegration Loops is based on Basinski’s attempts to salvage earlier recordings made on magnetic tape, by transferring them into digital format; however, the tape had deteriorated to the point that, as it passed by the Tape Head, the ferrite detached from the plastic backing and fell off. Basinski has said that he finished the project the morning of the September eleventh attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, and sat on the roof of his apartment building in Brooklyn with friends listening to the project as the W.T.C. towers collapsed.”

This footage, shot by Basinski, captures the final hour of daylight from that day.

anonymous asked:

Can a mental illness fake a type (for example depression 4, or anxiety 6)? If so, how would you know if you actually are of that type or your mental illness made you mistype yourself?

Yes, mental illness will make typing extremely hard, not only because some symptoms will appear like type-traits at first, but also because disintegrations, loops and/or grips are very likely and will obscure any results when taking tests and doing research on your own.

There is no ultimate solution to this problem but maybe those two approaches can be somewhat useful.

a) for temporary illnesses and lows:
- take the aspect of time into your evaluation
Try to remember what you were like before depression or trauma hit you (if you can’t remember, ask family/friends). watch yourself into which direction you develop once meds are adjusted.

b) for anything more longterm:
- build a framework within the official framework.
Let’s say you have OCD since you can remember and you are always getting ennea1 results. Now make a list of all typical 1-traits and substract every typical OCD-trait. Look at the traits that are left. Can you still identify with them y/n?
Talk to other people with the same illness. What differentiates them from you? Try to think of a chart what ennea/MBTI-types would look like if there were no neurotypicals and everyone had that same illness.

We play the part of a dying astronaut
Uniformed, adhering to rigid protocol
Putting our lives in the hands of others control
Letting ourselves become subjugated to capital
Struggling violently for oxygen in space
Each day feels like the end
A continual loop, perpetual disintegration
The more time is spent in this artificial space
Of domestication and consumption
The more leisure seems alien
And thus, the almighty dollar
Becomes the center of the universe
Even when we know it is nothing
But a black hole, devouring all joy


Wind Sand and Stars free DIY Audiobook

hallo all. I made an audiobook of the section of the book “Wind Sand and Stars” by Antoine St. Exupery that the little prince is based on. You can listen/download here . This was made as a class assignment, I’m sorry that the audio isn’t really mixed properly, I just really don’t have a clue how to do that. music is  “The Disintigration Loops” by William Basinki. I hope you enjoy it a little. 

disintegration loops

Did you ever listen to cassette tapes when you were a kid? Do you remember how your favorite one began to warp and let the sound bleed through both sides as you wore it down? You’d be listening to one song and suddenly the chorus from the opposite side of the tape would pop through for a half second. Time is not so different. If you repeat the same action over and over again, like typing in a cubicle or taking the same route to work every morning, you might start to see bleedthrough to the other side. You may look and see your hair thin and grey, you may catch liver spots blossoming on your hands. You may not be able to do anything about it.

Patrick’s Ambient Hour VI

William Basinski//The Disintegration Loop 1.1

I don’t expect you to sit and listen to the whole thing because honestly I can only count about 3 times I have. William Basinski created this music the day of 9/11 as he was recording out his Manhattan apartment window. These tapes were left for a few years and when he released them the tapes were old and worn out. As he played these loops they slowly wore out more and more as he played them. As your listening the sounds are being erased naturally. These songs emulate the sadness and grief felt on that day in 2001. It’s a documentary in the form of music.

RIP 9/11 Victims
