A live, improvised sound collage experiment, going back 28 years, weaving mesmerizing new soundscapes from found and collected materials right in the present moment.
Pop music, speeches, live phone calls and spontaneous monologues become ambient loopy layered threads riding the liminal spaces between waking and dreaming. [On hiatus.} (Visit homepage.)

The Crimson Permanent Assurance

"Humans have always been striving for freedom, and resist constraints on their activities. Now, this can be suppressed.

"So, take something in our ordinary experience: Getting a job. Suppose you're out of work, you don't have anything to eat. You look for a job. It's considered a wonderful thing to get a job.

"It wasn't always that way. You go back to the origins of the industrial revolution, mid-19th century. Take a look at the working class literature, it was very rich. The idea of having a job was considered a totally intolerable assault on elementary human dignity and human rights. Why should you be subjected to a master? Why should anybody spend most of their waking hours following orders given by a totalitarian ruler? That's what having a job is. It means you're following the orders of a master.

And in the early stages of the industrial revolution, this was regarded as not really different from slavery. In fact, it was called wage slavery. It was different from slavery only in that it was temporary, until you could become a free, independent human being again."

    - Noam Chomsky, December 2020
