What’s up, muthafuckin’ perverts?! Emoclew to another Miscellaneous Fucktacularity Edition and the third album in my personal 1,001 Albums list: The epic Venetian Snares album Rossz Csillag Alatt Született. If you’re not familiar with breakcore, this album might be an awesome introduction to it for you. The things that really set this album apart from most other breakcore albums/songs are the orchestral elements. There are a few other breakcore artists who mess around with strings and various other instruments (BLÆRG comes to mind), but the majority of it is sampling, breakbeats and synths. I think it’s fuckin’ awesome, but I’m insane. If you’d like to read the blog entry I posted about the album, check it out here: http://tinyurl.com/20141020blog. Anyway, to kick this off properly, I thought I’d read the liner notes from the album we’re about to listen to because it prefaces the album really well. Yojne!
“What if, for just a day, we could both be pigeons?
Sometimes, one moment in time can take on such an
important significance that it becomes an endless world
unto itself and everything outside of that moment, past
and future spots in time, become the folklore of the world.
What if we could both fly over the Királyi Palota and
see it just as these pigeons do? A beautiful culture
of dissimilar angles as donkey angels above this city.
But even in the world of the infinite moment, we
cannot choose the feather of our bird and
the pigeon may long to be the goose, the donkey the pigeon
and so on. Furthermore, as our world blossoms out of this
single tick in time, it is for one pigeon a swirling
romantic flood of euphoric possibility and fascination,
for the other, an inferior life of shitting on everyone
from the sky, awkward and ashamed,
resigning themselves to be the
wretched nuisance they are painted as by those they shit on.
Ultimately, as quickly as our world blooms, our world is discordant, and
our pigeons are wounded, and as our world dies,we die,and we are extinct.
If only we could kill ourselves over and over until we get it right.
So, just as an entire genre of music can be born out of one sped up ten
second breakbeat, a full symphony orchestra can come together in
harmonic unison to create that perfect moment in time, thus every moment
can give birth to an entirely new world, and every world can house the
recognition, that orchestra may combine to bring forth a
dissonant barrage of colossal sorrow,
and so the moment disintegrates its world and that
world suffocates the moment under its collapse.
These are love songs and grief songs.”
