MANIFESTO ! FLASHCORE ! 10 YEARS

WHAT WE CALL FLASHCORE IS WHAT WE’RE ON ACTUALLY… ///
COMPUTERS’S INCREASING SPEED LEADS TO MORE AND MORE POWERFUL AUDIO SOFTWARES. THIS HAS FORCED SOME MUSICIANS TO PUT THEIR MUSIC INTO QUESTION – WHILE OTHER COMPOSERS (THE MAINSTREAM ONES) USE THOSE SHARPER TOOLS ONLY TO RE-CREATE THE SAME PATTERNS SINCE YEARS.
IT’S TIME TO ACTUALLY RETHINK MUSIC AS SOMETHING THAT CLEARLY GOES BEYOND THE IDEA OF HARMONY AND RYTHM.
WE ARE ACTUALLY MUCH MORE INTERESTED IN ANY ACTION ON AIR MOLECULES THAT WIDENS THE FIELD OF CONSCIOUSNESS THAN INTO MUSIC THOUGHT AS AN END IN ITSELF.
WHAT IS TRULLY INTERESTING WITH THE NEW GENERATION OF SOFTWARES IS THE POSSIBILITY TO SHORTEN THE TIME IT TAKES FOR MENTAL IMAGES TO COME AND TO INVENT NEW FORMS OF MENTAL REPRESENTATIONS. FOR INSTANCE, REAL-TIME MORPHING TOOLS CAN OPEN NEW WAYS OF EXPLORING THE INTRACACIES OF OUR FACULTY TO ASSOCIATE SOME IDEAS WITH OTHERS, AS WELL AS GRANULAR SYNTHESIS HAS ALLOWED TIME TO BE THOUGHT AS NOTHIND MORE THAN A SUBJECTIVE POSSIBILITY : NOTHING MORE THAN THE LENGHT WE WISH IT TO LAST.
FLASHCORE IS THE SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL CONCEPTION OF AIR LANDSCAPES OF WHICH ‘ SONIC ATOMS’ (=THE SMALLEST PARTICLE OF SOUND WHICH IS THOUGHT AS AN ENTITY IN ITSELF) ARE BEING CONTROLLED WITH THE EXCLUSIVE AIM OF MAKING US EXPLORE OUR MINDS AND PERCEIVE ANY KIND OF TRANSCENDANCE. AS FOR ATOMIC ENERGY OR DRUG ACTION, WE ARE REACHING A POINT WHERE IT’S POSSIBLE TO PROVOKE NANO-AUDIO-EXPLOSIONS WITH QUIETE SOME BIG RESULTS FOR THE MINDS.
OUR CELLS ARE NOT AWARE OF THE UNITY OF OUR OWN CONSCIOUSNESS. BUT THEY’RE ACTING ‘AS IF’, FOR THE SAKE OF WHAT WE THINK IS OURSELVES – OUR UNIQUE ‘BEYOND EVERYTHING’ EGO – AND ARE NOT SO MUCH DISTURBED BY THE POSSIBLE NON SENSE OF THE TASK. ARE WE, HUMANS, AWARE OF ANY SIMILAR TRANSCENDANCE ? IS THERE ANY SUPERIOR CONCEPT FOR WHICH WE WOULD WORK ?
IF SO, I WOULD BELIEVE THAT THING IS ONLY A PART OF SOMETHING ABOVE, AND SO ON, DRAWING KIND OF A FRACTALIAN STRUCTURE WHICH IS ABSOLUTLY NOT CONCEIVABLE BY OUR LIMITED MINDS. I FEEL IT AS A PERSONNAL EMERGENCY TO FLY OVER THERE. AND FLASHCORE COULD HELP, FOR SURE. THE EXTATIC PLEASURE WE FEEL RECEIVING THE MESSAGE FROM THE AIR MOLECULES IS A STEP TOWARDS SUCH META UNDERSTANDING. WHAT’S THE MEANING OF BEAUTY ?

The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.

June 24, 2014 in general by technopunk

Azimov’s Foundation cycle sat in my brother’s bedroom for years when I was a kid, I grew up wondering what was the Foundation cycle, then ended up reading it all, and I mean all of his books. At some point in Foundation someone arrives in Trantor, and describes how they could see the clouds in the room of a spatioport because the ceilings were so high, this has become a key element of my work.

Also, about that quote by Azimov “The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”, I would like to say to the coders and companies working on #AR #augmentedreality that people aren’t waiting for you to provide them with another fucking boring GPS, or another cheap ikea app to see how would such furniture look like in their apartment, $$$ ? No. People want to fast forward into the future without having to get older, to bend space and time, tech got to the point of being “spice” for life.

This might sound arrogant, but so far I need to write it somewhere because Im there walking alone in the dark with this idea, and I don’t meet with any futurist building the future the way I do, simply no where, though I seek them, hence it’s my natural right to talk about it, and criticize if I want.

It takes to look up at the sun, the sky, and hallucinate. I am not scared to open that door, and if there is no door already I will build it.

REALITY IS NOT A COMMODITY

April 12, 2014 in general by technopunk

A small intro on the actual power from the tools of the trade.

It is after hours of long discussions with my power hacker matey ; of which I will anonymize the name right now ; that I came to this conclusion, that reality is not a commodity.
Lucky enough there are still a few high level hackers out there>> that are aware of their crypto power, aware of the convergence in between code/numbers/harmonious equations WITH the perfect curves of art and / or geometry.
Math and Art are brother and sister, both converging ; rather stochastically ; towards the wish to embrace that golden ratio, the golden number, the mother of all beauty and well being within our dimension, the one and only dimension that is reality.

_________________________________________________________________________________

MARKETING MEDIATED SPACES THAT FORM THE MEDIATED REALITIES – AND THE FRYING PAN COMPLEX, or whatever ud want to call it.

I am in horror everytime I see how AR companies are trying to sell us the “idea” that mediated reality is just as useful as a frying pan, which is very useful of course, but only for one use, and that doesn´t reflect reality.

But there is no frying pan to sell, what’s for sale is the direct surrounding space englobing the physical space of the body of your potential customer. That space is sacred, it is personal space, it is s p a c e, do you ever realize what is the idea behind the word “space”? Space is formed of stars, planets and suns, galaxies, black holes and for some it is God. Space is huge and it’s not any GPS system that’s going to reveal the idea of its infinite power.

To make things short, and since this blog post almost only targets AR devs on the go, and no I am not even going to say “please”, no. This is mandatory. Mediated Realities will make people DREAM or they will just go unnoticed, as long as there is no mindblowing *content* .

Of course I know that investors might not exactly understand what this thing is about and afterall people that sell simple screws might be as rich as the ones selling weat. But on this subject, trust has to be put into the artists that are able to envision bigger things, or people will feel trapped. As the builder and artist behind the largest online VR cybercity, I guarantee you this result, a lifetime guarantee. On top of that, it is of human duty to try to build bigger things, considering our size compared to the universe.

The problem in between the time for software development and content creation (aka goods to consume for users), is outa space, most of the time devs work on softwares and forget CONTENT, and I know what the result is in the mind of the people “WE HAVE BEEN FOOLED” yes this is what people think about new technologies that have no content to offer but just theories that take the shape of BETA LOOKING CREATIONS >> it is a NO , NO, NO. And don´t you think that you will go fine with a few and small little eye candy creations, at least for Augmented Reality, and anyways I am not talking about candy crush saga here.

But Long live the goldsmith of all emotions, long live the art.

Simply GO sell REAL frying pans, or as some weird people might say, Get a real job mate.

Social Media Overd000se, at technopunk, we are currently experiencing the phenomenom we call SOCIAL MEDIA OVERDOZING.

This can also be called an INTERFACE burnout.A burnout from all that cheap graphix brought to you by white collars that have no idea what DESIGN means.

Get ready for the OAR diaspora.

PIXADORES / STREET ART / NOT IN BABYLON

January 3, 2014 in general by technopunk

With all the fuss about street art, technopunk makes it clear that no street art from babylon and their jetsetting pseudo rebels will find a home here. With a few exceptions that will have to be thought about a tad more, esp the kids.
As mentioned below in the interview of this very website, respect to the Pixadores. In respect to Caroline Pivetta that was sentenced to 5 years in prison for spraying walls at the Sao Paulo Bienal, she did 52 days in jail and she is still waiting for her trial.

Technopunks? We became dissidents we didn’t even want it, all we wanted was to share, to be more fair, to not let go into dystopia. But here comes the future no one wanted. Here it comes with not one single tree, no access to the roots in the ground, and an oligarchic paradise.
