Rolling Stone Has Named ’808′s & Heartbreak’ The Most Ground-Breaking Album Of All-Time

Shortly after the performance, on November 24th, Kanye would release 808′s & Heartbreak, his first and only album not to feature rap as it’s primary genre. 808′s would go on to debut at #1, be certified platinum and garnered a Grammy nomination for his Young Jeezy collaboration, “Amazing.” 6 years later, 808′s is undoubtedly the drawing board for scores of artists today. From Kid Cudi to Drake, Kanye’s 4th LP has caused far-reaching ripples that will be remembered in Hip-Hop for decades to come. It was for this reason, upon several others, why Rolling Stone decided it is The Most Ground-Breaking Album Of All-Time.

According to RS:

   "But the album’s cavernous sound and exposed-soul lyrics confused even those who had been aware of West’s recent trials. Its core aesthetic was like nothing in Hip Hop: freshly butchered feelings enumerated in detail, but masked by digital processing; beds of spare synths used to balance a mix of singing and rapping. However, over time it served as a new template for up-and-comers in Hip Hop and R&B. Drake cited West as his budding sound’s ‘most influential person’ when he was hustling mixtapes, while artists like Future further tweaked the idea of using Auto-Tune as a way to convey emotions that evoke too much feeling when spoken of explicitly."

Kanye West's "core aesthetics" and "exposed soul"(lol)...

Niggers in presumably Amsterdam, Bijlmer (they have a more materialistic style in contrast with those in Hoogvliet [like Hef], although the texts are equally stupid and materialistic).



These nigs use constantly the words ''Wollah Meh'', Morrocan; though actual Berbers and Arabs look down upon them more so than European Whites. Lately there was a case were some Moroccan youth had beaten-up one of their own women and her partner for being with a negro, calling her a negerhoer (negro whore) - which had cost them her pregnant fruit (a mongrel baby).

If there is one thing I hate it are those who think that they speak a whole language by knowing a few words, such a case I have at my work with some Wigger.
I asked him why he talks negro, he said he talks ''Espanol'' (he couldn't even pronounce it), but it was Papiaments, a mix of Afro, Portugese and Spanish, he uses the words as negroes do - he is so proud on himself for having negro friends..



This specific text is ridiculously pathetic for a already ridiculous genre (''kut leven daarom moet ik in de lucht leven'' = shit life that's why I have to live in the air); but the most pathetic is that others buy such crap. His voice has no power, no strength, no emotion, no virility; nothing, just monotonously autistic. Not that it would matter for me if he would use more tones in his voice, it stays crap.

A outstanding reaction that I got upon my comment on this video of some time ago:



Translation:

I too have problems with migration, but than
because of the many whom do not learn our language
and spit on our values and norms. That these boys
rap in our language is for me just really the
max. A interesting mix of English, Dutch
and the swagg of their musical background / roots.
If they express their artistry and themselves in
art in our language, then that makes me happy. Plus,
they are not lazy parasites. They work and
have ambition to make it, you can say about it
what you want, but making music is making
money is making economy, is a positive
input in the economic field next to the cultural.
A gain is this, IMHO. And the text is flat (vulgar/simple),
but is it not just fun man, a delicious
sex song. It does not have to be always intellectual
and complicated in life. Just nice
and fun and swagg is alright too man.

A modestly pretentious church-slut seeking for the Modern pop-caricature's validation - the popgro (popular negro), he is universally appreciated wherever he roams among the ideals which are merely different in name but not in inclusivity / essence.
The popgro as a heroic-mascotte as to say ''we are open minded'' and to lure potential disciples to their ideology with saying right in your face ''we've got them too, the popgro, you won't miss out a thing by changing the ideals''. The popgro as some kind of caricature to have some feelings outside of the bubble, mistaking that every popgro has some kind of ghetto thug life history full of suffering from which they can take inspiration: ''look at him, he used to wear his pants below his ass and fucked (up) some not yet saved bitche...ladies; and now he wears his pants below his ass and raps about Jesus - these kind of feelings, so touched by the world outside our sheltering, is what we want to appreciate, the savage...,the youth who changed his life into civilized inspirational behaviour - I told you we can breed with them, they just need Jesus back into their lives!''



Derek talking about Jesus and how the world is so fucked up.

Nice Southern tune in honour to Jesus and a popgro to give the swag which the fatwannabegro cannot fully copy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52RiKjNTgV8

The negro seemingly has some unconscious confusion; the negro wants to praise Jesus and at the same time use Gspot-culture (Gangster culture touching the sacred G-spot of Modern man's current ego-frequency talking to them through C-rap) to sell it, or simply does not know how to emotionally express himself otherwise and it all beez good.

That uncut, that sushi, I'm too G, that's Gucci (WHAT ELSE!)
I'm bossed up, they washed up, e'ryday that Kush I cough up

Been a Konvict, ask Akon, had blocks locked, ask Avon
That's real talk, what's up B'Mo! (Yep!)
Bad Boy got Diddy on the T'Mo (WHAT ELSE!)
I'm Ill, make it look simple, DJ bring it back like a rental
Drinks don't stop, we party all night
And e'rywhere I go, I let it go like

[Chorus: Sample of "A Billi" by Jay-Z] (Red Cafe) {Fabolous}
RAH, I'm Ill, I'm Ill, I'm Ill,

Funeral Fab, yeah I'm in the building y'all
All black on and I be killin y'all
So, the name speak for itself
You have a loser plus a lame that'll equal yourself
Live from Bedford-Stuyvesant, the livest ones
Still on my Grizzlies, no Iverson (Waddup A.I.)
You ain't no gangsta, you an off-duty cop
With ya fake ass, they should call you booty shots
Yankee game, better seats than Rudy got
Fruity pot has me with the eyes Matsui got (nice)
That nigga, that you are not
Red dot on ya head's the best tattoo you got
RAH!

[Chorus: Red Cafe]

[Verse 3: Red Cafe]
They trash, And I'm Ill,
I'm too hot how the fuck I'm 'gon chill
Laid back, Maybach, back seat
I'm BALLIN! Like a athlete
Talk is cheap, everyone could afford it
Shakedown here, now everyone applaud
Now it's showtime, time to camcorde
I'm in the buildin, and I'm the landlord
From the east, opposite of Kanye
No appetizers it's just en trees
Just four doors, maybe a couple Coupes
Everybody's eatin, no Cup A Soup's
General R, just showed up
Don't pass me nothin already rolled up
Drinks don't stop, party all night
And everywhere I go, I let it go like

[Chorus]"

Minimalism, Theatricality, and Architecture


Quote :
Yves Klein, IKB 191, 1962, Monochrome painting. Klein was a pioneer in the development of Minimal art.



Minimalism

Modern music with Minimalist Roots


Quote :
"Donald Judd's boxes at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas:



…spectators are chilled by its apparent lack of feeling or content.  ritics, attempting to describe this new sensibility, call it Cool Art or Idiot Art or Know-Nothing Nihilism. That a new sensibility has announced itself is clear, although just what it consists of is not.                                                                                                                                  – Barbara Rose in “ABC Art,” Art in America, 1965


Minimalism, now recognized as one of the signal artistic strategies of the 20th century, was called many things in the 1960s: ABC Art, Literalism, Primary Structures, Specific Objects, Reductive Art. What was clear then was that the mute, unadorned, and often raw three-dimensional objects that were suddenly dominating many galleries (mainly in New York) were a world away from both the brushy, heart-baring heroics of then-waning Abstract Expressionism and the slick irony of the ascendent Pop artists.

Critics, curators, and even the artists themselves were trying to categorize the fresh approach, but it was actually a British philosopher, Robert Wollheim, who indirectly coined “Minimalism" in “Minimal Art,” a 1965 essay in Arts Magazine assessing the rise of a new kind of art—objects with “minimal art-content.” Wollheim used the term as a nuanced catalyst for discussion, but Minimalism’s detractors found the reductionist term all too apt; the art critic and AbEx champion Clement Greenberg said, scathingly, that he hoped this new sculpture would learn “how to rise above Good Design.” But Minimalists themselves—many of whom hated the term, in particular Donald Judd—were not dissuaded, instead seeing themselves as having started a different aesthetic conversation.

So, what was Minimalism, exactly? In the hands of the four canonical artists associated with the movement—Judd, Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, and Robert Morris—the work typically consisted of sculptural, bluntly geometrical works created from industrial materials (wood cubes, metal floor tiles, neon lights, thick felt drapes, etc.) that confronted viewers with their sheer, implacable objecthood, revealing nothing but their relation to the viewer's own physicality.
One of Minimalism’s main chroniclers, the art historian (and Greenberg protegé) Michael Fried, explained the movement’s conceptual concerns in his seminal 1967 essay “Art and Objecthood” by saying that its practitioners saw painting as “an art on the verge of exhaustion, one in which the range of acceptable solutions to a basic problem—how to organize the surface of the picture—is severely restricted…. The obvious response is to give up working on a single plane in favor of three dimensions.”
Andre, for one, had begun making these polemical sculptures in the late 1950s, but it was through shows in the early '60s at New York galleries like Green Gallery, Kaymar Gallery, Dwan Gallery, Tibor de Nagy, and Leo Castelli that this new sculpture gained notoriety. (“Don Judd” had his first solo show at Castelli in 1966.) Museums also embraced this new aesthetic. In 1966, the Jewish Museum held the important Primary Structures exhibition and the Whitney Museum included Minimalists in its American Sculpture: Selection I exhibition. American Minimalists were shown outside of New York with shows like Multiplicity at the ICA Boston in 1966 and American Sculpture of the Sixties at LACMA in 1967, and abroad in shows like Minimal Art, at the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague in 1968.
Across the work that constituted Minimalism—including that by other artists associated with the sensibility, like Walter De Maria (land art), Robert Smithson (land art), Sol LeWitt (conceptual art), Tony Smith, and Frank Stella (painting)—the key attributes could be boiled down to three elements: shape, size, and material.

Shape:



Size:



Material:



“The main virtue of geometric shapes is that they aren’t organic, as all art otherwise is," Donald Judd wrote in a 1967 essay with Lucy Lippard. "A form that’s neither geometric nor organic would be a great discovery.” Known for creating sculptures and installations that relied on the cube (or "box")—variations of which he made in plywood, steel, and Plexiglass—Judd also stacked pristine rectangular units at specific intervals up the length of walls, secure in the knowledge that the geometric shapes were not symbolic, representational, or meaningful in and of themselves. Carl Andre, too, stacked and placed pieces of timber and various metals into larger geometric forms, although he famously used the floor instead of the wall, radically removing sculpture from any form of pedestal or support; Dan Flavin created luminous, color-radiating sculptures from groupings of store-bought neons, while Robert Morris filled galleries with quadrilateral sculptures and draped thick sheets of sliced felt from walls, allowing gravity to determine its appearance.
Notions of symmetry and seriality were also important to the shape of the Minimalists' compositions, with symmetry employed not only to simplify production but also as a means of removing the need to balance any one part of the composition with any other. As Judd explained: “I wanted to get rid of any compositional effects, and the obvious way to do it is to be symmetrical,” adding that compositional effects “tend to carry with them all the structures, values, feelings of the whole European tradition. It suits me fine if that’s all down the drain.”  

In his essay “Notes on Sculpture,” Robert Morris quoted the artist Tony Smith responding to questions about Smith's six-foot 1968 steel cube work, Die:
          Q: Why didn’t you make it larger so that it would loom over the observer?
          A: I was not making a monument.
          Q: Then why didn’t you make it smaller so that the observer could see over the top?
          A: I was not making an object.
Much minimalist work related to human size, often in a way that suggested an unequal power dynamic. Morris wrote that this “positive value of large size… is one of the necessary conditions of avoiding intimacy.” Indeed Minimalist art often overwhelmed the galleries and museums in which it was installed. In her essay “Minimalism and the Rhetoric of Power,” the art historian Anna Chave noted that a large wood piece by Andre at Tibor de Nagy's 1965 Minimalism exhibition, Shape and Structure, nearly collapsed the gallery floor. Of the incident, Andre told Artforum, “I wanted very much to seize and hold the space of that gallery—not simply fill it.”
Not only was a lot of Minimalist work large in size, it was large in scale—it managed to filled space that it did not physically inhabit. The artist and critic Mel Bochner described this effect in his 1967 essay “Serial Art, Systems, Solipsism” from 1967: “For although [Flavin’s] placement of fluorescent lamps parallel and adjacent to one another in varying numbers or sizes is ‘flat-footed’ and obvious, the results are anything but.... Both Andre and Flavin exhibit acute awareness of the phenomenology of rooms. Andre’s false floors, Flavin’s demolished corners convert the simple facts of ‘roomness’ into operative artistic factors.”
The Minimalists’ desire (and ability) to capture space—and with it, the attention of viewers— was a major objection among critics to this new art. Clement Greenberg and Michael Fried’s main complaint of Minimalism was its sense of experience—or, as Fried would call it, "theater." (Greenberg thought, additionally, that Anne Truitt predated the Minimalists because her painted totems had an “effect of presence.” While the Minimalists did not think of their work as approaching theater, they were not only aware of but actively cultivating this experience of their works within their own terms.

One important early Minimalist work was Dan Flavin’s 1963 The Diagonal of May 25, 1963 (to Robert Rosenblum), which was first shown in 1964 at the Kaymar Gallery in New York. Installed at a sharp diagonal, rising from the bottom of the gallery wall, Flavin’s neon piece was assertively more than just a light fixture. Though the work’s electrical components were hidden, the bulb was left unaltered and bare, allowing the work’s cool white light to transform the ambiance of the room; yet, because of the placement and abrupt angle on the gallery wall, this common industrial object was clearly not intended for use—it was art.
Just as Duchamp’s use of found objects had helped usher in an era of "non-retinal" art, Flavin’s ordinary bulb—and, by extension, the other Minimalists’ use of common, industrially fabricated materials—declared a “detachment of art’s energy from the craft of tedious object production,” as Morris put it. The artist’s “work," here, consisted of the ideas and decisions that went into the presentation of the object—an idea that Conceptual art would fully explore in the late '60s, early '70s."

The Intellectual Origins of Minimalism


Quote :


The painting of a minimalist and clean room by David Hackney on the other hand extends the body without organs into the space and the narrative of the painting. We are left with only hints of the happening, a figure of a man wearing only a shirt and socks lying face down in a clinically clean room."

ArchAesthetics


Quote :
"Following the success of the minimalist art movement during the 60s and 70s, some rap artists attempted to bring the ideas of Donald Judd and Frank Stella into contemporary music, but were unsuccessful.

However, following the success of Mims in 2007, and the re-introduction of modern minimalism into Hip Hop, the trend was set.



The raw simplicity in Mims’ lyrics spoke to a vast number of the Hip Hop youth, and it wasn’t long before other rap artists adopted Mims’ approach to lyricism.

By now though, the music community was ripe for the minimalist revolution.



By this time, minimalism had been heralded by critics and fans as being the fresh new challenger to the, by now exhausted, bling rap and brand-new-hip-hop-dance rap.

Big time enterprenour and rap mogul Russel Simons was once quoted as saying:

“(People) are tired of hearing elaborate descriptions of money, cars and mansions. In fact, (people) are tired of elaborate decriptions of anything in Hip Hop. They want that raw, fresh rap that couldn’t come from any house (person). It has to come from the gutter, and it has to be simple. (People) don’t wan’t an English lesson; they want Hip Hop.”

For many rap artists, this was the defining moment in their career. Not only had they been granted free reign over the airwaves to finally explore the dimensions of minimalism, they could now participate in rap culture without needing a vocabulary of more than five words.

Hip Hop was now entering a phase never before forseen.



Nicki Minaj herself described ‘Stupid Hoe’ as her most inspired work in years, citing the work of Mims as her initial inspiration.

“The amount of struggle that artists such as myself have to go through for recognition is saddening, but it is great to see minimalism finally being recognised as a true form of Hip Hop.”

There are some critics that are begining to argue that minimalism in Hip Hop is losing it’s edge. They argue that artists that once found innovation in the art had begun stretching themselves to please a growing demand for this kind of rap. However, many counter-argue that more recent minimalist rappers have themselves begun to branch out into sub-genres of minimalism: namely ‘ultra-minimal rap’ and ‘toddler pop’.

Still, many rappers still feel that their craft is neccessary, specificaly during times of economic hardship, where rappers can cut down recording time through the looping of words.



Where this daring school of rap will go is up for much debate. But one thing is for sure, the ever growing public demand for it does not look to be dying down anytime soon. And as far as Hip Hop is concerned, it will remain to have a pivotal role in shaping the way artistic expression is seen in society for a very long time.

To end with a quote from the late 50 Cent:

“Nas may have said that ‘Hip Hop is Dead’, but minimalism makes a pretty strong case to say it’s still alive and kicking.”"

Old Norse Galdr means magical chanting, and alludes to the crowing of a raven. So a rune like Fehu would be crowed as:

Or Uruz as,

Or Thurisaz as,

etc.


Now, when the Runists meant "raw", or when the Spartans meant "less is more", their "laconianism" was not the "minimalism" of such "primal structures" where the idea was to put an object and leave the rest to imagination - "suggestibility". Not different from Baudrillard's theory on sex, seduction and simulation, where "suggestibility" became everything and "sex" disappeared altogether.

As much as VOt would like to push the agenda of equivocating cRap Minimalism to the primal rawness of Galdr or Spartan aesthetics, the very purpose is reversed. Galdr and Laconianism were Bold moves to cut to the plutonic heart of the matter, where nothing could be wishy-washy about it. It was the opposite of ambiguity, where just enough was provided that one could make whatever sense out of it.
The Minimalist's "primal structure" really meant just enough to Suggest a presence, Deleuze's a BWO [body without organ], minimal functioning:

Quote :
"...they receded and let the audience encounter the work, much as early house culture kept the DJ hidden in a booth, with the energy of the room steadily becoming the event rather than an individual performance."

Minimalism and Yeezus


The Minimalist grunts of Kanye West and other cRap artists is not a "Galdr" or a "Spartanism" as much as VOts want to level them down as the same dionysianism.

Speaking barely and just enough to convey a meaning, as in, instead of "the one I trusted broke my heart", saying,

"She bitch", or "Love jugular"  can may be Romanticized as modern "Viking kennings", but not really, not honestly.

If I ate up half the words in the middle and just put enough subject, object, grammar, that doesn't make a kenning,, and that kind of "bare primality" is not the Toxicity of Radical roots, from which words and world-views evolve.

Fast cRap Minimalism is a shutting down of thought, than being really "edgy".

Rapid words coming out like "punches" and thug-virility as a serialism of words connecting other sound-alike words that can "just about" be put to made sense

"Uh, sama lamaa duma lamaa, you assuming I’m a human
What I gotta do to get it through to you I’m superhuman
Innovative and I’m made of rubber
So that anything you say is ricocheting off of me and it’ll glue to you
I’m devastating, more than ever demonstrating
How to give a motherfuckin’ audience a feeling like it’s levitating
Never fading, and I know that the haters are forever waiting
For the day that they can say I fell off, they’d be celebrating
’Cause I know the way to get ’em motivated
I make elevating music, you make elevator music"

or,

















Keeping and slanging vocabulary to the minimum has nothing "potent" about it as the kind of Dionysianism, say, exhibited by the "crooning" of some Blues Artists, or the insane self-thrashing of death-metalists, or the "crowing" of some rock artists picking up a line and repeating it over and over till they could intuit into it and build it into a crescendo of meaning in the form of a feeling...

The cAnus mindset that FEARS complexities of reality, and wants to make the conflict go away, is Exactly the pill-logic of cRappers keeping it to a "minimum", throwing words now and then, a ghetto-grammar of "safe resignation".

This is the opposite of the "expansion of consciousness".

cRap songs of "minimal truths" of living with "danger in the streets" with the spirit of "minimizing life itself" to the bare minimum of drugs and day to day survival, is presenting one's limitations and circumstances as sub. for reality itself.
This is the opposite of that Dionysian "Terribleness", that is the daring to affirm larger and more painful complexities of life in a logic of grand-simplicity.

Minimalism is neither primality, nor that Grand-simplicity.

The geometric shapes of the runes were to see laws in the looming of life, and not the reduction of life to abstract geometry as in minimalist architecture and words becoming icon themselves: "bitch", "snitch", "yo", "shite", etc., and 'silhouettes' of 'just enough' to tease base emotions.

A teaser is not a film.

Maybe, in the future, even films may go "Minimal", where a teaser would be enough to convey an "impression".

A kaleidescope of one scene after another, like random words placed one after another and patched to suggest a story and a sentence is not a sign of evolved taste, if all it does is kill thinking in its fight against linearity.

[Films like Babel akin to Triptych paintings appearing like BWO actually mean to show the radical root, and the differing organic drives building against and together with one another into a central story. ]

cRAP is minimalist.

Rhymes, arranged in word-association emotional innuendo sequences.
Simple, bare minimal, hedonism...like a child talking.
The words don't matter except as stimulation of a feeling.
How they are arranged does not matter, because no complexity is being ordered. They are only used to create primal sensations in other by using words that trigger those sensations.

Like the beats they are accompanied and accentuated by.
Heart-beat...sexual....

And what the fuck is your c-Rap; the display of niggers trying to compensate through symbols, over-pumped muscles, vulgar language and body movements for their non-masculine slave past, low-class position in every form of society and their impotence to get high quality women.

I see a nigger displaying his fake ''masculine'' impotence, c-Rapping with anger about Whites, centering their lives and desire of dominance in their c-Rap, presenting women as sluts, fetished about asses and White women subjugated to their dirty fantasies, propagated by Jews as an Ideal and as tolerance for multicultural anti-Whiteness.

Nigger myths of superiority and the arrogance to think they have any value in what they c-Rap.


http://www.leedsbeckett.ac.uk/news/1015-racism-and-sexism-in-heavy-metal-highlighted-in-new-study/

Quote :
A new study from Leeds Beckett University has revealed how the metal music subgenre of folk metal is not only a fantasy space for young, white European men but also an important example of how heavy metal can be seen to normalise masculinity and ‘whiteness’ and perpetuate sexism and racism.

The study, published by Professor Karl Spracklen in a special issue of the journal Metal Music Studies on gender, race and class, edited by Rosemary Lucy Hill (University of Leeds), Caroline Lucas and Gabrielle Riches (Leeds Beckett, pictured) argues that folk metal, through its lyrics and stage clothes centred on myths of warriors, preserves an old-fashioned power structure where white, male Europeans are superior.

Professor Spracklen explained: “The important point about folk metal is that there is a pretence that the bands are drawing on older folk music and pagan myths to make music that is authentically local and national. The myths are generally of masculine prowess and the warrior’s search for glory. However many fans see some of the bands as inauthentic and not real pagans, sometimes using historical inaccuracies and singing in English where this isn’t their nation’s first language.

“Through the study, I found that although women fans of heavy metal enjoy folk metal with the same kind of passion and intensity as male fans, and there is no doubt they find identity and belonging through the music, the heart of folk metal is predominantly masculine. The warrior myth that folk metal is focused on is normalising this masculine predominance in our modern day world- men still have enormous social, cultural and political power.

“Folk metal’s obsession with warriors and cultural purity, displayed through tales of Vikings and dressing up as Vikings on stage, reduces belonging and identity in a muti-cultural, cosmopolitan society to a few exclusive myths. It is showing white men how to be white men and showing women and ethnic minorities their place in European society.”

Professor Spracklen is interested in leisure forms and leisure spaces – what we do in our free time - and the way they can be used both to create a sense of identity and belonging, and a structure of subjugation, in the period that we live in.

He said: “Leisure is a human need that emerged with our awareness of self, which expressed itself through the development of language, culture and art. Popular music is a form of leisure. People make meaning in their lives through listening to music and talking about music with their friends. They find identity and community in scenes, through fashions, makeup and hairstyles.

“Alternative popular music has shaped a counter-cultural leisure space since the 1960s, with all alternative subcultures eventually being co-opted by the mainstream, which is currently happening to metal, and this creates a sense of belonging and control.”

Folk metal is a fusion genre of heavy metal music and traditional folk music that developed in the 1990s in Europe. The first band of this genre was England group, Skyclad, who formed part of a wider pagan Celtic turn in alternative culture in England in the 80s.

Folk metal achieved some mainstream success in the 2000s which lead to it becoming less authentic and those that used to champion it began to react against it. It is still not mainstream according to music sales and numbers of fans on social media – for example, the mainstream, popular heavy metal band Guns n Roses had 31,016,896 likes on facebook in December 2014 whereas the most popular folk metal band was Eluveitie, with 748,507 likes at the same time.

Within Professor Spracklen’s study, he presents an analysis of five bands who are well-established in the industry and generally known to fans of heavy metal.  The accounts include Turisas, a band who are best known for their 2007 concept album, The Varangian Way, which tells the story of Vikings who travelled to Byzantium to become mercenaries serving the Roman Emperor. Folk metal bands see Turisas as inauthentic and not genuine pagans, whilst Professor Spracklen points out the historical inaccuracies in their stories which also serve to remind fans that the Byzantines are white Europeans, with the suggestion that it is better to be a Christian than a Muslim.

Another band highlighted is Tyr, formed in Denmark but priding themselves on being authentic and traditional, as metal from the Faroe Islands where their original, but not current, band members are from. Dressing as Vikings on stage and with a pagan name, their fans see them as authentic despite having a conventional metal sound and singing mostly in English.

Professor Spracklen explained: “The bands in the research are all trying to identify with some reputed folk culture that existed before modern times – a culture of pure white people, mono-cultural and mono-racial. In some bands, there is an explicitly racist purpose for their adoption of Thor’s hammers, Viking imagery and heroic pagan myths. While I do not think that the folk metal bands focused on in this research are explicitly racist, they are certainly romantic, conservative nationalists who sell the idea and myth of racial purity. They reduce complex ideas of roots, identity and belonging to simple, imagined and imaginary communities defined by race and nation.”

Heavy metal is seen as something unfashionable and relatively harmless in society, with folk metal representing the worst excesses of the heavy metal stereotype: the swords, fantasy, sexism, and histrionics.

Professor Spracklen added: “In my research I argue that folk metal serves as a comfortable leisure space for those that have lost power in recent decades: the white European, working class men who have faced challenges to their assumed privileges from women, globalisation, immigration and postmodernity. However, at the same time it should not be easily dismissed in this way, and I believe it remains central to the idea of heavy metal as a form of leisure that makes masculinity and whiteness the norm.”

Quote :
"Jamaican music scholar Frederick R Dannaway charts the rise of technology and machines – and the changing role of the producer – from roots reggae through dub to digital dancehall.

Rhizomatic riddims
The roots of reggae stretch deep to African soils, re-emerging as digital filaments and radicles in the creation of dub, dancehall and digital reggae. The revolving complexity of instruments filtered through various types of mixers and special effects has changed the very conception of music. From bedroom to cutting-edge professional studios, digital hardware is ever birthing new combinations. Dub as the mystical shadow of vocal versions has always had a touch of magic in its echoing translations of one drop riddims. Producers are the ‘scientists’ and ‘professors’, ‘organisers’, ‘doctors’ or ‘chemists’ in their recipes of audio potions that vibrate from their studio laboratories.

All music that is not enjoyed live and in person is subjected to the interlopers of recording devices and studio equipment of microphones and amplifiers.

The logical extension of this is that the mixing board itself becomes an instrument, transmuting certain tones to ghostly echoes, reverb and delays that envelope the music in a warm, almost supernatural aural glow. The mixing board’s magic allowed for the overdubbing of instruments, as exemplified by Freddie McGregor on many Studio One classics – including most of Sugar Minott’s output for Coxsone – that reinvigorated old riddims. The classic mixing desk used at Channel One, the API 1604, is a technological masterpiece and a work of art that rivals the finest wood instruments in aesthetics and charm – even, or especially, if it conjures up science-fiction movie rocketship controls.




The 12 track, and later 16 track and beyond, mixing boards – as Tubby and Jammy used – allowed the distinct layers of the music to be dissected (and sometimes mixed down to four tracks), allowing bass and percussion to linger and smoulder in an intense minimalism, fathering the reductionist digital reggae of the late 80s on through the 90s. Deejays chatting over minimalist dub versions was rap music before there was hip hop. The ramifications of roots music into the versioned instrumentals created dub as its own genre. The dub aesthetic of Jamaica in the 1970s expanded into electronica, house and dubstep. This avant-garde music played with sound, texture, pitch and scale like a painter attempting to capture light with shadows and chromatic contrasts, forever altering the evolution of music.

In some sense, the acoustic vs analogue vs digital debates might be likened to herbs vs synthetic drugs or natural light vs halogen bulbs: their processes are somewhat artificial or virtual in essence, still organic (to quote Jah Shaka, meaning, “of the earth”) but in a domain that transcends or transforms nature."

The rise of technology in Jamaican music



Quote :
"While in Minimal Art the material is limited to geometric forms, in Minimal Music the number of tones and intervals and the dynamics are reduced. Furthermore, artists avoid all forms of complexity as far as rhythm, articulation and sound spectrum are concerned.
In the next scheme larger units are formed out of single parameters. For example, a Minimalist composition may consist of one single tone or sound, include especially long-lasting tones or pauses or connect single tones in the form of root constellations such as broken triads, tone scales or circles.
These elements are then repeated with minimal or without modifications at all. By the same token, slight changes such as addition, subtraction or shifts can be found in previously defined sequences, without counteracting the Minimalist tendency of the composition.

Although in 1967 such an attentive critic as Lucy Lippart helplessly explained that Minimalism was a virgin birth the idea of radical reduction as the basic principle of minimal concepts did not emerge with Minimal Art but was already used by Kasimir Malevich in Suprematism around 1912. Malevich’s Black Square on White Ground (1913) exemplifies the reduction of elements to a basic quadratic form, seeming to be detached from the picture itself.

The aesthetic decision of absolute reduction can be noted already in Schoenberg, claiming that music should not embellish but be true. He states that art is not related to what one can do but what one must do. Thereby he paves the way for the early days of Minimalism about which the art historian Irving Sandler says that there was nothing that looked uglier, less related to art or more transgressive at that time."

around 10':





The universe at bottom is a clashing of forces and vibrations, no melody, no rhythm, no harmony, which is something attained to by chance.

Now Minimalist music can claim to be "Keeping it real" or "True to the earth", "base values",, when it presents its reduction, altering it ever so slightly and building upon the base [repeated to attain a continuity like a breathing rhythm] as capturing the "Drone" [etym. male bees make no honey but hum, i.e. no melody, but mundane] of reality.

In classicism, music was Art, because it had the melody that "filled" the "empty hives"… it was artifice, it Lent something, it Bestowed something…,, why music and medicine went together in the figure of illusion-god Apollo...

Minimalist music tries to Usurp the place of philosophy, or atleast becomes its tool when it claims to expose the "base value". It is no longer Art.
That's one.

Two. While Minimalist "Base" may claim to an aesthetic of "getting back to the real important things" and "doing away with the unnecessary", it comes back to Standards, of what we consider "important" and what we don't.

Living like animals is a hedonistic Regression, and minimalist music so far has only been a justification of this Regression, of this "Poverty Porn"…

What does it matter if the ablaze spirit still sings of justifying that "dignity" which keeps it at the level of the animal??! - drugs, sex, "brotherhood of jesus", "the lowly is the king", "Respect me", etc. etc.

True base is the surge of the spirit that FIGHTS decadence, not justifies it - no matter how "creative" a medium it deploys. And fight against decadence is not the minimalist's fight against decadence - their ressentiment of celebrity lifestyle and luxury,,

but of everything that cowardly dubs its comfort, its limitations and Its stopping there - as 'highest excellence' or 'life-affirmation' or being 'rooted'…


Freedom and creativity not as an ends in itself, but as a for-what?

Ok...now how am I gonna get that noise out of my head?
I meditated over an early morning dump, one day...found profound geometrics, deep meanings, in the shapes the turds made.
Michelangelo was my buthole, to have produced such exquisite insinuations, and vague reminders of a day of feasting.
 
Then, I flushed.
And it was gone.

Acc. to them, the above series of videos were meant to be a poetry in motion, to show how something originates or can originate from Almost near-nothing. This near-0 minimal is 'dis-closed' by the cigarette…. the minimal "flicker" of "something" at bottom…

Whatever they may call it, I'll assume its the spark of clashing chances, with the possibility that one such may loom into a flame, a world come into being…

Even if the allegory is the celebration of the creative spirit that makes something out of near-nothing,

something from a wreckage, a debris, a desert of near-nothing…
the artist as a positive-nihilist who creates meaning in the face of meaninglessness, croons it into being..

STILL,

stopping there, is like an orgy, where everything that manages to make something out of the minimal - all become valuable, and thus cancels itself out as value-less.

The africans stuck with the minimal beat, and crooned their way upto c.Rap,
the semites stuck with the beat, and crooned their way upto Acting,
the I.E.s stuck with it, and took it upto Philosophy…

Minimalism is thus the theopan-istic equivalent to the Neoplotinian/Xt., "All is divine",

All artists who build "something" out of the minimal are a clan…

and in this pressure-deselective lateral bi-partition of creative vs. non-creative, LEVELLING DOWN the "something" of any x, y, z, as all valuable, saved merely by a "not equally so"…

Any existence that managed to exist as something in the face of the minimal nothing, is thus already a victory.

Everything is already valuable.


The ultimate logic of such an an-archic position in the absence of selective standards, can only be valuelessness and dysgenics.

To the contrary, Snead claims that black cultures highlight the observance of repetition, perceiving it as circulation and equilibrium, rather than as a regulated force that facilitates the achievement of a final harmonic goal.
Drawing on examples in literature, religion, philosophy, and music, Snead elaborates on the uses and manifestations of repetition in black culture.

For our purposes, his analysis of the meaning of repetition in black music is most
relevant, specifically his description of rhythmic repetition and its relationship to the "cut":
In black culture, repetition means that the thing circulates, there in an equilibrium. . . . In European culture, repetition must be seen to be not just circulation and flow, but accumulation and growth. In black culture, the thing (the ritual, the dance, the beat) is there for you to pick up when you come back to get it."
If there is a goal. . . it is always deferred; it continually "cuts" back to the start, in the musical meaning of a "cut" as an abrupt, seemingly unmotivated break (an accidental da capo) with a series already in progress and a willed return to a prior series. . . . Black culture, in the "cut," "builds" accidents into its coverage, almost as if to control their unpredictability.

Deliberately "repetitive" in force, black musics (especially those genres associated with dance) use the "cut" to emphasize the repetitive nature of the music by "skipping back to another beginning which we have already heard," making room for accidents and ruptures inside the music itself. In this formulation, repetition and rupture work within and against each other, building multiple circular musical lines that are broken and then absorbed or managed in the reestablishment of rhythmic lines.
Grounding music as a cultural discourse dismantles the causal link between rap's sonic force and the technological means for its expression. Rap producers' strategic use of electronic reproduction technology, particularly sampling equipment, affirms stylistic priorities in the organization and selection of sounds found in many black diasporic musical expressions. Although rap music is
shaped by and articulated through advanced reproduction equipment, its stylistic priorities are not merely by-products of such equipment.
On the question of repetition as a cultural force, Attali and Snead part company.
For Attali and other cultural theorists, repetition is primarily considered a manifestation of mass culture, a characteristic of culture in the age of reproduction. The advent of recording technology signaled the emergence of a society of mass production and repetition. Repetition is,
therefore, equated with industrial standardization and represents a move
toward a single totalitarian code.
At the point of mass production and industrial standardization, Attali claims, music becomes an industry and "its consumption ceases to be collective."
Similarly, Adorno describes the "break" in pre-swing jazz as ''nothing other than a disguised cadence" and explains that, "the cult of the machine which is represented by unabated jazz beats involves a self renunciation that cannot but take root in the form of a fluctuating uneasiness
somewhere, "in the personality of the obedient"

"In mass culture" Fredric Jameson claims, "repetition effectively volatizes the original object so that the student of mass culture has no primary object of study."

Black Noise: Rap Music and Black Culture in Contemporary America

European classical music is melody centered.
It takes the mind on a rhythmic in time/space - it is explosive, and expansive.

Degeneration is represented in a return to tribal beats, sampling melody as 'breaks' in the repetitive base-lines and rum sequences.
The beat implodes consciousness, forcing it inward where primal energies can impose themselves over consciousness.

The repetition adds to the trance effect.
The lyrics reflect this return to the esoteric, the ego, and the primal.
With the contribution of alcohol and chemical numbing the experience could be gratifying on a visceral level.
The individual coming in contact with a repressed self, allowing it to express its libidinal energies.

The appeal of this implosion of consciousness and the surrender to the trance, silencing consciousness so that the repressed self can find relief, can be most seductive to sons and daughters with a low opinion of their own heritage, missing a connecting father figure to their past, or ashamed of what is known that may be subconscious.
The sound-beat, imitating a heart-beat, returns the mind to the womb, where all it knows on world is contained by the placenta.
The mind enters a hypnotic state, directed by the repeating vibrations.
The world fall away and it is left with its own body moving to the rhythms of the deep beat.

Repetition echos modernity, with its industrial, repeating, recycling of a shallow past - its humanized order.  
An animal state is achieved. The body's rhythms tuning themselves to the external reverberation - finding agreement, as if contact with a deeper truth has been found - a re-connection with an absent parent. Dialogue of physical processes with the technologically produces sounds, and a surrender to it.
The institutions speaks, with its regimentation, its modern systemic rules and regulations, its repeating production, but the child feels it as contact with what it is missing.
The music embraces him/her, creating a sonar womb.

I found that melodic music is the only type bearable when experiencing existential problems. The psychological fragility makes the C-Rap bass unbearable. Anything which used a regular beat (like most 'new' music) even with what's called "lo-fi" or other supposedly peaceful beats, become an offense to the senses. Generally it's because of the simplistic and repetitious beat, where other artists can manage to make a beat which is atleast somewhat melodic:

--
Same artist, but being more egregious about making the beat the focus instead of the melody. Still superior to most others because it is more melodic:
Spoiler:
 

Here is a comparison:
Spoiler:
 

The latter has the beat on repeat, without interruption. While melodic, it is still repetitive. The former make the beat "misstep" every so often. Classical music composers did this with their music to prevent a stale sound.
--
In another thread on music theory I had talked about the origins for particular sounds having an effect on us. In the womb we hear the intestine, breathing, heartbeat and 'white noise' of everything else. In general, string instruments are like the intestinal sounds, heartbeat like the drums and breathing like wind instruments.

Like I said, the repetition mirrors modernity's recycled obsession with partial, or segments of the past.
It's the same process of constructing a unreal image.
You splice together two phenomena from experience, creating something with no reference to anything outside the mind - a pure noumenon.
Repetition places you in a hypnotic state, where you are receptive to subliminal messaging.
A sonic high.
The individual can experience a multifaceted sensory high, by also including drugs, alcohol, marijuana, mushrooms etc.
The music add to it.

The mind is released from its bondage, repressed emotions, feelings, sensations spill forth, like a mental orgasm.
Because thee energies are held under control, repressed, the sensation is, like an orgasm, pleasing - tension released, what has been held in hiding, released.

The thick beat, of drums and base, create a pressurizing effect, forcing the mind inward, rather than being swept away, as with the effect of a melody.
Melody is explosive, and this more visceral heart-beak sounding vibration is a implosion.
The mind is forced into the body, becoming more aware of it.

Among repressed Moderns the physical is what is denied, so this is a form of regressing back to a primal, or a more adolescent period when the mind was still exploring its own body.
youthful exuberance rebelling against the system;s demand to repress the physical, or to deal wit it as one deals with clothing - as replaceable, interchangeable, recyclable, a fashion choice.

50 Cent and many other negro c-rappers, recognize the superiority of the Caucasian Eminem.
It took a white guy to introduce substance into c-rapping, above the nihilistic, chimpanzee, grade.

Honourable mention of Tupac....with a inferior superior for his time degeneracy.

Eminem manages to inject the baseness of mindless self-promoting materialism, and sex talk, gorilla narcissism, with a beginning, and end, and in between a narrative that speaks of socioeconomic and psychology that manages a slight, but noticeable, de-subjectification of mindless monkey word-associating chatter.
I would not call him a musician, or an artist comparable to the greats, but within the degenerate genre of modern decadence, he rescues what substance is left to exploit using primal noises.
His self-aggrandizing overcompensating narcissistic pop-references have a certain lyrical style, delivered with some tongue-in-cheek skills.



What Negro even came close to exiting base jungle motives and american braggadocio?
Like I said, only Tupac came close.

Eminem is an example of surrealism triggering imagery, simple concepts, in the intended adolescent audience, burying feelings and social motives in a chaotic mess of mind-farting explosive word-vomiting, with an infectious back-beat, a sampling of melodies.
The usual message is part of the underlying tirade: standing-out, being appreciated, in the socially produced increasing uniformity.
Specialization, and institutionalized autism, has, and is creating human zombies that need these types to break them out of their lethargy.

The common theme is one of masculine obsolescence, lost boys with sub-par father figures, looking for alternatives in a world that offers symbols to measure values.
Feeling unappreciated is a side-effect of Nihilistic degeneration.
Having a child affirms affirms, for a short while, but with growing divorce rates, and the majority of males being left outside the gene pool, these social free-radicals are part of cultural psychosis.
The male has to prove himself worthy. It is part of his reproductive nature.
Returning to natural sexual relationships, with the liberation of females, has created masses of lost boys, seeking validation, feeling ignore and unappreciated - valueless.
Need that can be exploited.

In the past they were sent off to die in battle - see Crusades and current Jihad.
But such options are becoming problematic in an age of nuclear power.
Technologies, producing entertainment releases, and sports, can offer some relief, but it requires constant reinvention, because the mind becomes habituated, even to drugs, and needs higher doses. Entertainment must remain novel, but it fails, creating versions of the same, with slight variations and new combinations.
Movies are produced using successful recipes, changing the story-line, and the actors.
cRap "music" is a reflection of this repetitive production of the same.

Eminem combines the two, with his cRapping references and his tonal samples.
Psychotherapy for those wanting to release what is accumulating.
For a moment the individual, the male, feel invigorated, feels like he matters, his anger expressed, he is heard, though a proxy, acting the tribal leader, directing them into battle.
Prestige and reputation measured with fame and fortune - popularity the body-count, of a verbal, social, warrior's wrath - War like no Other.
