    "a global mystery called The Hum"

    sounds like cyclonopedia but for dubstep instead of oil

    So far this book looks to me like it is twinned with the work me and Barty started here in earnest on the feminine pressure thread. The objective experience of music with this notion of the sonic body being much the same as what I call the sugar glider. I'm really getting a buzz off it but also feel disappointed that someone with so much to say hadn't shared it with us here.

    I think they eventually came to the conclusion that it was caused by shifting tectonic plates, but it's probably a cover-up for Godzilla or Cthulhu or something.

    Good to see that he gets that the imagination uses a synesthetic super language. He grasps a lot of the foundational things we've hashed out here over the last however long. Such a shame he didn't join in much. Could have helped a lot.

    I asked myself why these projects always seem to lean so heavily on Deleuze and Guattari (with Spinoza & Nietzsche hovering in the wings) and it's really just cos they're the only ones who allow you to have fun without the finger wagging isn't it.

    If you have to perform contortions in order to justify enjoying yourself you'll struggle to write about dance music.
