Re: My name is Oliver Tex and I make noise

The point is that thesis (buy a feedback looper) and antithesis (call it noise, then it is noise) are both wrong (and therefore both right in a way!), and it is the search of synthesis that can lead to actual understanding. It would have been helpful if then you said this in the first place. So whe...

Re: An external observer

have you ever contemplated learning to actually play an instrument? Can't Play, Won't play. Musicians - "they look like a power/ hierarchy kind of thing." And not real musicians... i'm a real musician... Muse and directly from Latin Musa, from Greek Mousa, "the Muse," also "music, song,"... from Ol...

I pay no attention ...

Re: An external observer

[...] merely having and expressing an opinion isnt doing so 'philosophically'. Yes, it is. I mean, if it isn't, then what is it? It is merely expressing an opinion. 'I like red wine' is not a philosophical statement. Why? Well the use of 'philosophical' singles out statements. Some are some are not...

Re: My name is Oliver Tex and I make noise

Please say where i'm misrepresenting you. I have three (?) points. 1. Your use of the term “If you make techno and call it noise, then it is noise. “ a) If this is true the term in effect becomes meaningless. b) Last-Fm can call anything noise and they are right. i.e. it becomes 'perfect' and useles...

Re: An external observer

Philosophically, I agree with none of these positions. Furthermore, taken out of context as they are, they look like a power/ hierarchy kind of thing. OK. And you dont need to give any reasons for thinking so - but merely having and expressing an opinion isnt doing so 'philosophically'. (They form ...

Re: My name is Oliver Tex and I make noise

but now the champion of Oliver, you, now labels him dumb. I seriously doubt he bought any Eftos tracks in the belief that was noise. But some of his work which he posted links to sounded as close to noise as Eftos. So he could listening to Eftos think that was Ok as noise. Moreover you gave him at ...

Re: My name is Oliver Tex and I make noise

That then someone might buy – eftos in the belief that was noise... If somebody is dumb enough to do that, serves them right. But... when Oliver Tex points at his Soundcloud and labels its contents as 'noise', he is reprimanded? By who? The Noise Experts Who Know Better disapprove. So he should Shu...

Re: An external observer

The semantic horizon which habitually governs the notion of communication is exceeded or punctured by the intervention of writing, that is of a dissemination which cannot be reduced to a polysemia. Writing is read, and "in the last analysis" does not give rise to a hermeneutic deciphering, to the d...

Re: My name is Oliver Tex and I make noise

Are you suggesting that there is a corporate conspiracy to deprive the people of true noise? No i'm saying that there is such a thing as corporate conspiracy, and its seems odd to me (at least) that the top tracks you posted in Last FM Noise category were by eftos – electro dance? and for sale. I d...

"But... when Oliver Tex points at his Soundcloud and labels its contents as 'noise', he is reprimanded. The Noise Experts Who Know Better disapprove.

Re: My name is Oliver Tex and I make noise

Last-Fm the product of Michael Breidenbruecker and friends made a nice profit ($280 million) selling to CBS... which of course makes it a very reliable source of information- unlike as you say - “humanities douchebags” … parasitic on something you call “counter culture” - That would be Microsoft and...
