THE OTHER SOUND: ISSUE #10

The Other Sound #10

The Other Sound #10

Welcome to “THE OTHER SOUND: ISSUE #10“. This is the second issue, and much the same as the 2012 issue (technically Issue 9) this issue is spread out here via blog version – or a print magazine re-deux of the early 1980’s magazine published by John Zewizz – “The Other Sound“. There were 8 issues printed before the magazine stopped being pressed. My goal is to have one of these out every 3 months. I can’t guarantee that I will make it, but I am giving it a shot.

THE OTHER SOUND: ISSUE #10” picks up where Issue 2012 left off. Inside you will find information about various Inner-X-Musick artists (Batcheeba), as well as Friends on Inner-X-Musick (klanggalerie/Walter Robotka, Rat King), and items that just interest me (Reviews, SexMagick). A Special thank you goes to John Zewizz, Madhav Ravindranath, Walter Robotka, Michael Ford, and Janne Berset for their help and support.

A little about “THE OTHER SOUND“… we are an organized group of people who do believe in musick. Special musick that is… we believe in keeping our musick prersonal. Not for the masses. Our musick is made to satisfy the doubt and demand for obscurity. We aim to fulfill the desires in ourselves and the desires of similar to us.

Our interests fall in the lines of obscurity and obliqueness, be it to look at… to listen to… or to engage in. Bound by a pledge to bind oneself and keep the betroth of cryptic interests alive inside oneself.

And so comes the name “THE OTHER SOUND“, the sound remaining…. remaining from the majority – (the larger number, more than half) – the masses. “THE OTHER SOUND” is our musick, our beliefs, our interests, OURS what belongs to US.

THE OTHER SOUND: ISSUE #10”  is available as a PDF HERE.

The entire “THE OTHER SOUND: ISSUE 2012” is available in a nice neat package as a PDF available HERE

Thank you,

plugin to the kkaotikk source kkore

i can’t do those thought-inspiring posts, not with prose, or lyrics.
(which is pretty obvious when reading my petty blogging efforts)
i can only express myself in audio, in code,
binary zeroes and ones, waveforms, abstract concepts and ideas…
so,
the last year or so, i have been obsessed with coding (c++),
started an(other) opensource project: axonlib.
but now it’s time to merge all that with ‘proper’ musical/artistic projects.
(especially kkoagulaa)
we have a ton of self-produced audio effects/software available now,
and there’s a lot more coming.
software made for our own use, for our own ways of working,
we don’t need to adapt to some other genreric/a4 methodologies,
we can be our own tool-makers.
software inspiring our art, and our art (re-)inspiring the software…
megalomanic dreams, grandiose thoughts, other-worldly ideas.
in repetitive cycles.

fortunately, inspiration has never been a problem of ours, we have almost too much of that, we just need to filter out the realistic ones, the ideas that can possibly be made into ‘real life’.

if you (for any reason) are interested in following a more technological side of kkoagulaa, have a peek at axonlib (source code) or ccernn.audio (software, the binaries, plugins, etc, linux/windows). things are updated regularly…

and finally, if you have any ideas for a plugin or other software, or anything else,
we could try making it happen!
don’t be afraid to get involved! don’t hold back, follow your inner voices. (that’s what we do)
we would like to see the kkoagulaa “kkollektivee” grow!
happily lose some control.
so that things feel exciting and fresh again!

also, there’s too little chaos and confusion on the world, so i gladly contribute what i can to that!

and, btw, ‘i’ might mean ‘we’, and ‘we’ could mean ‘i’

Kkultural Bolshevism? The kkoagulaa manifestooo in Bulgarian

In a wonderful display of the spirit in which we carry out our humble endeavours here at kkoagulaa towers, Boris, our friend from Bulgaria has done us the kindness of translating thee kkoagulaa manifestooo (alpha test) to Bulgarian, and an interesting discussion has started over at his blog.

For those who don’t read Bulgarian, we give you a convenient google translation, for what it’s worth.

I want to bring some bits of Boris’ intro and subsequent discussion so we can give our own thoughts, and perhaps bring some more discussion as we polish some new work, and bring the next iteration of the Manifesto bearing in mind the thoughts expressed.

Here goes. First, from the intro. I have tried to recover as much meaning as I could from the jumble that was left from the google translator-bot:

Manifesto “kkoagulaa” (alpha test)

02/06/2009 – kriegor

I decided to translate and publish this document alive mostly because I like that line of reasoning and objectives, voice and says there is implied a similar attitude towards culture. Here defend freedom and art works by a living “… so Nice. To understand it in purely pragmatic plan, a culture based on present state of copyright arising from hiperteksta, the free exchange of information and ideological opposition to the free and non-free software. I encourage people who have not heard of the Copyleft approach and the licenses to be familiar with Creative Common s and the GNU General Public License; when it comes to free art, free (except for all that might mean in practical and ethical level) here is the same as in “free”. Without these basic principles, the writing is unclear, “impossible” and even crazy. From a legal point of view, there is no new ideas, in Bulgaria this approach is validated by the time of the project, which has its own manifesto: “Open Culture Bulgaria”; therefore, more important is to seek and philosophical reasons to think that respect (eg in terms of hermenevtika, artistic evolution and philosophy of life).

Once the manifesto has greater scope than just a legal problem you need to know that this is a form of thinking (and philosophical), which legitimized not only the right attitude, but the whole aesthetic. Understanding of philosophical texts in the plan is needed spiritual (for) freedom, or at least reject the structural, pozitivistki, behavioral, and other psychologially reductionist approaches. On this issue and will publish my next essay.

And another thing: some might think this is just an ad for kkoagulaa, designed to get attention (and money?) Why it is not so clear from the text.

The translation of the declaration was made on 22.05.2009 by Boris Radev and Ralitsa Todorova, however, does not mean it can not tolerate change. If anyone has a proposal for better translation to make it to publish the relevant passage in the comments.

Please be critical because, as evidenced by its title, this is the spirit and advocate.

A refinement and it is not manifest in the traditional sense, with the strict nature programming, but in the words of its author: not so much a statement expressions as conversation assumption proposal.

We are extremely grateful to ahve this motivation to give the kkoagulaa manifesto a complete overhaul. Soon to come is Thee kkoagulaa Manifestoooo (Beta), along with the examples our kind translator suggested we shoud give.

And the comments, largely from an individual calling hirself :

Pretty naive to manifest in my PERSONAL tai rear its objectives such as “Zeitgeist” and the like, not like it and that movement of otazhdestvyava “free art” with (as you said) disgusting name “kkoagulaa” is like PATENT? People from the – superior intellect and spirituality will know that small capitalism against which this article declares shall not preclude the Creator and one has to start thinking before you “cut and added to reappoint himself

The problem of free beauty and art (as described in the manifest) begins where thinking begins.

It is very close to the human mind to say that whoever would have the right to sell its ownership, no matter toothbrush or bear is free to do so.

And he who wants to issue their creations with the free license is free to do so.

Ultimately, copyright is only on paper;)

Movies, music, games and programs should not be used without a license and software purchased and pictures can be plagiarized and if placed on the internet no one pursues you;)

All movement is air pressure.

Thanks to Martin for this light to form-critical comments.

I do not know whether the objectives are like traffic Zeitgeist, as I am not the author, but an interpreter. I do not have such large targets, but does not mean that we do not accept some of the tasks. For identification between art free content and kkoagulaa a word can not be done because on the one hand in the face of the project are an example of how one could create (and could, in countless other ways) of other hand, this is a concept that is responsible for certain content, which can be parallel with the creative impulse of life and evolution of Bergson, for example. Whether the sound sucks, boring, stupid or disgusting is phonological problem.

I have no intention to divide the people of higher and a lower intelligence as it is unjustified, but it is apparent that there is a certain misunderstanding of izkustvtoto and creative potential in everyone. This “small capitalism, which belong to the biggest financial giants of the music and film industry (and many other communities) create an attitude in people that produce them, and any other potreblyavat forms of art. What is written here is directed (apparently) to people living with art remained present. He understands that and him, nothing to be angry that reads something familiar. On the other hand, most profound thought is not a condition for beautiful works of art. And if you go beyond lizentsite here thinking about life, the universe, society, culture as constantly happening creative products. And if so (and it might be thought so in existentialism hermenevtika +, say), then only one step remains to understand that we as artists in their own life, destiny and freedom, and picture (art). This is the only way to transtsedirame existence through the things that we do as actors: subektnost our products, by which expression and communication. I do not mind people want money for how to express. I have a mind to expect that others will pay for their zasvideltestvat respect (this practice anyway not ever happen).

What exactly does that do not use certain things in a certain way is a matter which in legal terms is relatively easy to clarify, but not ethical. This is the most important problem (with the aesthetic dimension), which is here.

This movement, now that I think most – well described as “cultural Bolshevism” very wild words freedoms for all those things and still absolutely nothing in particular, how can one believe, what?

“Natrapva our position that art is something that the man from the crowd and just sit indifferently observed, if art has a role in his life. Vital to reject this thesis. Demonstratively discarded it, and move the next step. “

What is the place of human beings in art? Is obliged to participate in it?

This invocation of the phrase «cultural Bolshevism» by Reichsprotektor is not the first time the idea has come up. Earlier comentator Mr. Trippy brought up how artist would function in a communist society in his comment on our answer to Altermodern, the attempt to transcend post-modernism, or of one curator to increase his international profile. As a hermit who would perish in a collective living situation and who has no drive to be “part of something bigger” or to belong, it’s a tough line of thought to follow through to its natural conclusion. That may be attempted at a later date.

What we have done little to address is the specifics of our take on free culture in its relationship to the marketplace. While we have given away a lot of our work, we also have an announcement coming up announcing our signing with a label. This label will sell music. We’re addressing the state of cultural life as it exists in this moment. The last fourty years has been characterized by a dominance of a star system in music not unlike the Holywood studio strarmaking system of the 20’s-40’s. The paradigm has been that a musician is either a star and obscenely wealthy, or not existing in the real world at all. With technology putting the means to create and record music into the hands of more people than has ever been possible before, music becomes more about ability, vision and artistry than the waning period that fell under the corporate dominance previously mentioned.

This does dovetail with the mis-named «piracy» issue, but if people are only to share the same assembly-line corporate product as is pushed on commercial radio, television and print media, then there really is no point in any of these activities. We’re bombarded by that anti-human, anti-life sewage everywhere we go anyway, so why help spread it further?

This conversation shall be continued, and watch this space for the revamped Manifestooo.

hm, this might be interesting to some. haven’t tested it, as i don’t use windows anymore.. but for people that fear new things, this could make trying out (or getting used to, before switching) linux/ubuntu a bit less scary…

re: linux vs win/mac

here’s some more copy/paste stuff from another blog, to balance out the previous “linux vs win/mac” post a bit…

— how to be a linux user

I’m sure all of this is already in y’all’s blood. But you know, I figured I should write it down for all the noobs out there. They need to learn how to behave properly as a luser.

  • If something doesn’t work for you, tell yourself that you don’t really need it anyways.
  • Convert at least five others to user your distribution of choice. Even against their will. Do whatever it takes. Lie about how it makes such a great OS. Tell them the people at the NYSE use it. Tell them it gets less viruses. Tell them it runs on their toaster, so it’s awesome. If they resist, here’s some things you can do:
    • Do NOT research Microsoft security technologies. Instead, just point solely to Windows 95 and UAC as examples of poor security on Windows
    • Tell them that they can install thousands, no millions, of apps with a single command.
    • Tell them that they’ll have choice. Do not tell them that they’ll have to make tons of choices which they know nothing about.
    • If they are non-programmers, tell them that it’s a fantastic opportunity to get into programming and spend hours and hours to make their system work.
    • Question their manhood or womanhood.
    • Accuse them of spreading FUD.
    • If they’re Mac users, accuse them of blatant homosexuality. Then tell them that they’re spending way too much money. Show them your wobbly windows.
    • If they point out that they won’t be able to do something that they could before, tell them that they didn’t really need to do that anyways.
  • A year later, convert them to your new distribution of choice.
  • When you have a configuration problem, do one or more of:
    • File a bug, without doing any research on the problem.
    • If you’re really in the mood, find a totally unrelated bug, and post a comment along the lines of, “Hey, I think this might be related …”
    • If you’re actually partially smart and have found the appropriate bug report, post a comment saying ‘Me too!’, even though there are already 300 of the same. It really helps developers when their bug report pages are really long. You see, they judge the importance of a bug by how short their scrollbar grabby-thing gets.
    • Post to Ubuntutips. Be sure to sound really spoiled.
    • Tell yourself that you don’t need that feature. Tell yourself that if you wait patiently you’ll have it in 2 years, maybe.
    • Write something along the lines of “I totally need this feature XXX to work. Someone help me” to every mailing list you can find that ends with -devel.
  • When others have problems, do one or more of:
    • Tell them that it works for you, and give no further information. New users must learn on their own. Remember this. It’s for their own good.
    • If you’re a little more motivated, tell them that it works for you, and then tell them about your hardware that is totally different from theirs.
    • Never reveal that you actually have no idea what you’re talking about. Suggest random solutions like patching their kernel.
    • If they’re trying to watch some video or listen to some music in a non-free format, drop some knowledge on them about how they’re poisoning society. Trust me, everyone really cares. They’re just too stupid to know to care.
    • If all else fails, yes, you can tell them that they don’t really need that feature. By wanting it, they’re just prolonging their addiction to useful software.
  • Most importantly, write blogs, comment on blogs, post on forums , anything, to tell people that your Linux desktop does everything you need, but make sure you know absolutely nothing about the proprietary software workflows that exist on other platforms. It’s really important that you have a “clean room” opinion, unaffected by the imperfections of the real world.
