The avatar you posted above is not mine, it is from a guy called Luke, who is a diagnosed Schizophrenic, and I suppose a friend. He used to post here, but Daric AKA Fire AKA Killing Raven Sun... and some others kept badgering him to commit suicide, on Maniacs I think, to the extent the thread was removed. Partly I think why Luke stopped posting. OK so you've said you aren't nice so it wont be of concern, but I thought I should tell you that the avatar is not mine. Anyway Luke is doing OK, set to get a Masters in creative writing.
What a funny buried thread subject this one is.
Why aren't you busy annoying people on Reddit with your supposed authoritarian artiste sham BS?
Are the dumb brain dead "bitches" over at Reddit smarter than you also?
Please try to get this right. I'm not the one claiming to be smarter than anyone. That is Daric AKA Fire AKA Killing Raven Sun, maybe you, IDK. You certainly spend quite some posts calling me stupid - so I guess you think you are smarter. I don't subscribe to such ideas, I've worked with kids who are illiterate but can value scrap metal in seconds, for all our 'smartness' we couldn't survive in the Amazon as the tribes there do. Partly why I think so called 'survivalists' are silly, like the one you post Youtubes. Yeh, got computers and a 4x4! Still if it rocks their boat. Not saying they are smarter, or I am. I know some stuff you don't, you know stuff I don't - maybe lots.
The problem with reddit was a mod who crushed all argument. Not conducive to a debate re anything. Allowing free play also isn't - like Troniks exploded. You were not around then?
hey... is that you just scrolling through midi c note automated previews on the EMU Proteus 2500 for almost 7 minutes?
Partly true, much more than 7 minutes. And if you check also through the presets on a Roland JV-1010 - over 1000 now, and still working on others. Next up a Roli Seaboard Grand.
you could have done/can do so much more with that machine even in total creative minimalist mode...
Yes i'm well aware of that. But its not the motivation for the project.
and you released that under the title "Gnosis" Art as metaphysics???
now be honest... especially since you are already busted/debunked
I'm not aware of being busted or debunked, merely some posters - 2 - on some board keep saying they have. One whose contribution to noise is a single free bandcamp, lots of videos from youtube, and not much else, and another who hasn't even a bandcamp piece. I'm being honest here? Unlike WhiteWarlock who has to remain anonymous. But yes - Art as Metaphysics. Also stuff on the Gulf war - Thurston Moore collaboration if I remember. And the Bikini tests - which caused more anger than you and Daric put together.
what a pathetic attempt passing it off as "Metaphysical Art"
thinking no one would ever notice what you actually did
and/or call you out on such rubbish
Of course I wanted people to notice. And sure - someone like yourself wont like it, which is OK.
You are into P.E. and Black Metal. I'm no fan. But i'd respect those that are into it. But I guess part of your 'thing' is not respecting others.. IDK.
sort of sums up your entire life's work in noise
OMFGs you are a lame ass no talent bullshit artiste slacker
you are really only fooling/cheating yourself
This is the internet - you can say this stuff with no comeback. If i'm really only fooling myself why are you bothering - sorting through old posts, visiting my SoundCloud site etc. Why does it seem to annoy you. Previously you called my work childish, I pointed out that is often used by some (in the 'establishment') to criticise new art. I make no claims about my work though, some find it of interest others don't, and have been far more violent than you or Daric.
plus horrible example for new people in here creating noise
Again - your example is one of secrecy and anonymity. Of Death Metal, which isn't noise. My advice to those new people is to ignore the advice and try to find your own path. As one art lecturer said - and I think in art its good advice, 'if you see Buddha on the way to enlightenment - Kill Him!' Or another - Blake 'If a fool persists in his folly he will become wise'.
stick to computers & philosophy(something you seem more adept with)
Again - i'm not going to take your advice, as above, and certainly not from a person who continually tells me i'm stupid and to fuck off.
rather than attempting to sell your egotistic/narcissistic infused garbage "Ariste" persona to us
For any new comer, there is no 'US' we are born on our own, its our own life, pain and joy, and our own death. There is nothing to loose because we are all lost. Though some pretend otherwise, and if that gets them through the night - its all right. The term Art is also of no consequence.
dogs are smarter than you
True. I owned a dog once who watched puzzled as i fell into a deep snow drift.
the Fool is in a constant state of discovery, relying entirely on an internal compass to guide and lead him to the places he refuses to follow with any map other than his own. His naïve wanderlust is balanced out by the small dog seen "nipping" at his heels as he approaches a cliff, oblivious of falling, for he has no fear to influence his judgement. The dog represents the world, a place characterized by sensibility, order, and limitations. The dog attempts to pull the Fool back into the world, but the Fool is a dreamer, and will always choose to live in the airy space of idealism than to exist in the safe, but consequentially quite boring realm of the everyday.
Thanks for the 'nipping' but no thanks... Art the final frontier....
