Epicurean Escapism II – CD & DVD

EE-II-CD-DVD93

What is life? What are we doing? Why are we doing it? Why aren’t we just pleased with life; why are we constantly inverting new stuff to occupy our time with, when we could just be content with the feeling of life and being? Have we as a species become to full of ourselves that sheer existence have become dull, monotonous, and un-fulfilling? What does a species, that has become disenchanted with existence, do to replace the most primal and basic experience of our sheer being? We escape from it and substitute with, amongst other things;
Art(paintings); the escape through man-made windows to our world and nature, to relive a certain point in time, frozen with the feelings and emotions captured by the painting? (Can life be represented through mere colours on a surface?)
Sound(music); the escape through man-made harmonies, melodies, and rhythmic vibrations of the air, that carry with them (un-)consciously collectively decided feelings and experiences that transports us to another world or puts the listener in a trance. (Or do it put the listener in a state of experiencing true awareness of life? Is that possible through man-made means?)
Literature; the escape through man-made abstract symbols that man has decided represent a certain object, feeling, or abstract concept, that transports the reader to an abstract version of life that can be experienced through another representation of a human being. (Are we capable of creating a version of existence when we constantly flee from it?)

Anemone Tube/Dissecting Table – This Dismal World

This Dismal World

93

“如果有應該被生活的私慾和渴望,無數的困擾眾生,
讓他們覺得菩薩淺探世界的聲音不斷崇敬和然後他們可以流下自己的慾望。
如果他們有偉大的憤怒和憤怒,讓他們認為不變崇敬的淺探菩薩世界的聲音,
然後他們可以擺脫他們的憤怒。如果他們有很大的無知和愚昧,
讓他們覺得,不斷崇敬菩薩淺探世界的聲音,
他們可以擺脫自己的愚蠢。“

Anemone Tube – Forget Heaven

Forget Heaven

93

Once again I have the pleasure of talking about the great purveyor of sonic destruction, namely Anemone Tube! Prepare yourself for some most eerie, dark, and nihilistic soundscapes, yanked straight from the darkest recesses of an abandoned and forgotten despot lost in a dystopian hell! Yes, it is time to lose your mind in uncanny and strangely atmospheric noise. Continue reading

Anemone Tube – Flowers of Reality

Anemone Tube was conceived in 1996, in Germany, by Stefan Hanser. He is a experimental noise/dark ambient producer and much of his music is a mixture of dark, low key ambient loops, distorted acoustic sounds and a big emphasize on psychedelic and industrial soundscapes.

It is not easy to get a grasp on the weight of Anemone Tube’s music, much of his works are quite different from each other and yet,at the same time, they are all very similar. His works, specially the tapes and later works, share the same overwhelming feeling of dread, unease and the feeling of distance. His music puts you in an almost hypnotic state and transports you along a forlorn boat journey, through distant and alien landscapes, imprisoned together with a longing for something more than reality.
