Velimir Khlebnikov: “The Radio of the Future” (written in 1921; radiophonic recreation by Miguel Molina Alarcon and Leopoldo Amigo, 2006)
In 1921, the Russian futurist poet Velimir Khlebnikov wrote a remarkable essay entitled “The Radio of the Future,” in which he projects a vision of the new wireless medium as a synaesthetic panacea for modern man— “the spiritual sun of the country, a great wizard and sorceror” which will unite humanity by allowing for the instantaneous, universal transmission of text, sound, flavor, and scent.
Khlebnikov’s essay, which must be read to be believed, has been imaginitively realized in sound by the scholar and sound artist Miguel Molina Alarcon of the Laboratorio de Creaciones Intermedia at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia in Spain. He has used the sonic references in “The Radio of the Future” to construct a sound-collage that evokes the heady, futuristic atmosphere of Khlebnikov’s writing.
The album from which this track is taken is one of the most remarkable documents of experimental music I have yet discovered. Consisting of one disc of reconstructions and one disc of historical recordings, Baku: Symphony of Sirens offers entry into the bizarre and beautiful sound-world of the early 20th-century Russian avant-garde. I will be featuring more of it in due time.
Larry carlson and his hallucinogenic art work.
Psychedelic might not quite cut it when it comes to trying to explain the crazy-colourful collages of Larry Carlson. It’s hard to know where to start as Carlson jams animals, religion, landscapes into spacey, rainbow-coloured collage. He’s also experimented with digital paintings, animation and photography.

"The aloneness is total and complete. Not loneliness but aloneness. Loneliness is always concerned with others; aloneness is concerned with oneself."
