No, I Don’t Cry on the Outside Anymore

Šum#12 Launch Event, Ljubljana

Talk/performative reading on the underwater sound of recent Pop and the drowning of Pop consciousness.

“Underwater, metabolising the oxygen of your last breath, using up the traces of your past terrestrial life, shutting down the consciousness, giving in, you finally get out of your head and become part of the flow. Your thoughts become sonar pulses, searching for the other that you already know is not there and this completes you, infuses you with a calming melancholy that normalises the pressures of your new capitalist environment. You find yourself, even if this self is a bit drowsy, oxygen-deprived, your new Ambien-self.”
