d/y ethereal radio broadcast #91: Diluvial

Hi Max,

This is a wonderful google image search that gets progressively stranger at subsequent pages:

The diluvial audio mix is actually mostly "classical" music (Reich and Schwitters), with the Minutemen as counterpoint and Bowie as Puck in the epilogue. To me, the Minutemen are a wonderful strain of twice-derivative pop music (spawned from a confluence of Steely Dan [derivative of Duke Ellington], CCR [derivative of Blind Lemon Jefferson], and a swill of bad Hollywood punk bands). The diluvial mix is a kind of a neo-Merz/Dada response to this Massumi essay:

"a thin but fabulous hope--of ourselves becoming realer than real in a monstrous contagion of our own making." (Brian Massumi, 1987)

"Look out at your children
See their faces in golden rays
Don't kid yourself, they belong to you
They're the start of the coming race
The earth is a bitch
We finished our news
Homo sapiens have outgrown their use
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though they're here to stay"
(David Bowie, 1971)
