Gothic futurist gurgle leaving everything to the imagination.A perfect companion to any psychoactive situation. Trans-human make-out soundtrack. Glue-like 50 minute noir-film music. Finance themes. Glitch meets doom-metal high on paint fumes.
CRUDE - ARTLESS INTENT SIGNATURES VOLUME 1 [sn:mc]
No-wave chunks of sound/slurry captured during lean times in Auckland City.Demented and at times hopeless. AI Signatures Volume One provides an atmosphere both bleak and deconstructed. Similar at times to 'Bank'.
CRUDE - CONTROLLED PAYMENT TECHNOLOGIES [tn]
Manic breaks and static-glazed synth anthems, arcade pursuit sequences and supercooled cryo-sound. Warped and highly subjective. Features the hit 'The Mine'.
CRUDE - INTELSAT 707 [f/hn:psy]Part 2 of a 2 part investigation into the extremities of sound. Recorded in a huff in 1998, the Intelsat sessions are a volume of profoundly exaggerated feedback and almost 'psychotronic' level inter-dimensional drone-core.Intesat 707 is the experimental 'remix' of Intelsat 703, a sound perhaps 'geo-magnetic' in nature. [?]. Molten metal. A vast superstructure collapsing. Good for the moody.
CRUDE - C3 [lte]
Piquant serving of electro-syncopation spiked with meths.Zippy prozac-laced arcade tunes. Stylized feather-weight electro-trash designed for the tiniest of computer speakers. Timeless.
CRUDE - DEATH SATELLITE 2 [f/hn]
Four monolithic slabs of super-condensed synthesise. Rediculously heavy. Grandiose and alien.
CRUDE - STALINO CYBERNETICS [lte]
An album of electronic tunes designed to [at the time of creation] "empower corporate intelligencia".In hindsight, why the hell would I want to do that!? Spy themes, study themes. Geek.
CRUDE - SCI-FI SOUND [da]
As my internet investigations become increasingly 'out there' the music invariably follows. 'Sci-Fi Sound' is a conceptual piece - basically a soundtrack to some sort of B-Grade biotech/science fiction film. Sounds hackneyed but you will be pleasantly compelled. Essential. Glue. Mushrooms.
CRUDE - CYP35 [tn]
Heavy-ass drum and noise venture. Gargantuan remix of the classic anomic anthem 'I Don't Know You', furious data 'feed' sequences and other noisy ganglia.
CRUDE - PROLIFERATION OF DRONES [tn:lte]
The 'Australian MP3 album'.Pieces selected for posting [dumping] to the Australian version of MP3.com. The palette: power electronics, rockabilly,shit-noise, IDM,other ------features the potential music videos 'Help-Us/Be-Us' and 'That's How it's Gonna Be'. To some, retarded. To others, post-human.
CRUDE - THE STRAY EP [tn]
The first in the Aklass tryptich. Again, we're talking 'power electronics' [power surges, overloads, leaks, digital interpretations of Niagra Falls], radio manipulation [music concrete] and dried-as-bone TechNO. This would be ideal for those wishing to 'test the water' with the 'heavy shit'.
CRUDE - STAND YOUR GROUND [lte]
This is the 'major' album for 2002 - all pieces given away in a fit of desperation[altruism][an undeniable pathological calling to anarchic restructuring of consumerism] and posted to the Aklass site. If you wish to own a 'trinket' then purchase this, the cover is quite cool I guess, that pic of me looking like and I quote 'a Russian mental patient'. The music borders on commercial------but, it simply cannot BE that way.....
CRUDE - AUTO SERIES VOLUMES I TO IX [m]
Just before 'running away' from Dunedin in 2001 I completed a 9 volume set of randomly compiled [hence -'auto'] songs/outakes/noise. This is the first in the series, and is recommended for those who really wish to 'dig deep' into the Crude sound/psyche.
CRUDE - RAYTHEON [tn:psy]
Flat-lined minima pixels, radio hiss and video. So it's basically synth noise with a little more subtelty than usual. Title based on real-life aerospace company, hope they don't sue [so what if they do]
CRUDE - CATALOGUES OF MEANINGLESSNESS [ilf:pr:je]
Previously described as a 'shocking Hill-Billy rock-stomp', and it kind of is, although perhaps a little more sophisticated than that..looking to acheive a kind of Cajun [?] vibe or something with horn, guitar and one shitty drum. Features the songs 'Real Nice', 'Turbo Cum', 'Mitternacht' et al. Most of these songs ended up on the now famed 'Turbo Spunk' acetate triple 7", you know the one, with that photo of me looking insane and all that naive photocopy art.
CRUDE - STORED VALUE SYSTEM [f/hn]
Another pulverising wad of what I call 'pain music'. Others have called it 'oppression'. This is really heavy - it's just really fuckin heavy. Like a fucking stodgy exotic meal sealed within yer groanin' guts tryin' to negotiate outta yer constipated asshole..
CRUDE - FASB 52 [tn:lte]
Collection of further refined trash/electro from the year 2000. These tracks set the standard for future Crude electro. Very progressive in it's approach.Worth Getting. Yet another title. What to buy. Why buy. Why now.
CRUDE - CAPITALIST EXPERIMENT [lte]
An earlier window to the evolution of the Crude electronic sound. Pieces rendered 1998. Many wonder how I 'got that sound'. I have to say it's kinda one of my 'strategic assets'. Not only do you need the gear, you actually need me operating it. And, according to my temperament, I work best alone. I am wanker - here me raw!!
CRUDE - NASDAQ [lte]
Now that the majority of human molecules are available to purchase on the internet I guess some smart alien could have a bit of fun. The things you can do with money! You can buy anything! Even Crude! And this CD - Nasdaq, another array of Crude electro, low of tech, wide of vision, allbeit Orwellian. Introduces the micro-frequencies of 'kamikaze perspectives', the cut-up capitalist advice of 'bikini' and the unpredictable swoops and dives of 'ufo pursuit'.
CRUDE - MARS [tn:g]
Another of the space orientated works - an increasingly common Crude theme/fixation. The full title of this work is :'I will go to Mars at the First Given Oppurtunity' - nihilism? Net investigation posits Mars as a likely human outpost perhaps 2050. Mars resources on the net are vast. This album is a blaze of superconducting electronics [again] and other crazy ride type synth excursions. I got alot of time for this one.
CRUDE - DATASTREAM COWBOY [pr:lte]
This was modelled as a 'major release' - perhaps the follow up to Inner City Guitar Perspectives. It's all there, the horns, guitar, clarinet, the quirky vocals, the wierdness. And the synth is finding it's own here too. I almost sound sentimental. As old as it is  [that's not old] Datastream Cowboy will still sound futuristic in 2010. Songs.
CRUDE - SPECIAL TONE [f/hn:psy]
Deliberately extreme. This is the sound of a trillion jet-streams. If you are searching for White Noise, this is my interpretation. Use this album as you see fit - be it distraction, dislocation or destruction. An aid to time-travel.
CRUDE - POPULAR SOURCE CODES [f/hn:je:tn]
Slammin' chunks of refried rock'n'roll recklessly tossed together with sick portions of Cold-Waved Cryo-Core. This album showcases the chaotic bar-room brawl soundtrack 'Binge Theme' and sets your mind in fresh concrete with 'Refridgerant 502'
CRUDE - SLOW CODE [f/hn:psy]
In perhaps a more scientific mode I captured a curious stretch of Short Wave and commited it to tape. I don't know what caused it - very eerie, yet probably man-made, or natural - nothing paranormal unfortunatly.[Could of been Aurora]. This is the hippy in me - that sort of shit, short wave , UFOs, inter-dimensional shit. Anyway it's a 50 minute long Aum-type thing. It'll lull you to la-la land. [It did it to me..]
CRUDE - SPECIAL EDITION [tn]
This album was launched at the Gathering 1998 I think. I don't think people really knew what to make of it - the Trance zone seemed almighty at the time.One crazy guy danced maniacly to the hyper-human beats and gave me the thumbs up. That made it all the more pleasant.
CRUDE - INFORMATIK 105 [f/hn:tn]
More noise. Double album lenght, fax/modem sensibility. True alien horror-scapes designed for thre office environment. Features the irrevocable classic 'Brainwash Sequence '53' and the lift-off perspectives of 'Beta Test'.
CRUDE - INTELSAT 103 [f/hn]
Again, a deliberatly extreme work. Calculatedly extreme. Wall-noise street drunk glue-bag heavy. Appealing to terahertz technologies. Guitar feedback vomited and re-ingested. Renegade optics. Re-animate the dead with this shit.
CRUDE - RESISTANT PROTEIN [tn/psy]
Heavy-core synth tech. Perhaps this work wasn't necessary but none of it is. Must leave documents and legacy to world. Catalogue it all, great or small.If they get it now, maybe they will then.
CRUDE - NEW FUNDAMENTALS [m]
This was the first batch of songs injected into MP3.com, back in the year 2000. It's always controversial, mp3s. Some deem it foolish to 'give it away' but then again the brand or band name finds it's way to the 4 corners of the Earth, generating interest amongst pools of people and distributing itself exponentially. If someone could just throw $ into the equation. There are some great songs here, and a nifty cover. Beige, the black of 2010.Many shining examples of the 'Crude Sound'.
CRUDE - CRUDE LIVE [m]
Crude Cuts from my various attempts at conducting a coherent live performance. Tune in to those audiences, place yourself there - - oh the spectacle! Crude live - edgy, obscure, surreal.
CRUDE - SAXOPHONE [je]
Last but not least a bumper edition MAX collection of saxophone experiments from 1996-1998. Incorporating 'Sax Serpentine', 'Sax Serpentine 2' and 'Clarinet Exercises'this cd will delight. An obscure monastic tone permeates these recordings. You be the judge. Jazz geeks, indulge![and criticize]

I think this community can be percieved negatively because of that "havingvisions that are shocking to the social consensus" thing; these visionsbeing at the fringe of conjectures and actual trends, it can be frustratingfor people who don't want to miss on the evolutionary advantages this tribemight have yet don't want to bet on duds.This situation saddens me because I find myself "shot by both sides" :extropianism and the majority of people are either at best lacking thehistorical culture to know these ideas are old hat or at worst voluntarlyomitting this knowledge by sheer vanity.
The visions and methodology of Extropianism hardly makes it a newphilosophy.
Charles Fourier, great historian of the future, philosopher of gloriousmusical tomorrows of harmonious bodies, way after civilizations, when theflesh will be invested of ideal qualities , who was appreciated by Marx andEngels, was proposing an harmonian revolution.Here's some traduction of passages from Oeuvre complètes tome VIII andBulletin de Lyon, 1804:"humanity will wake itself to the materialist ameliorations it's body issuceptible to."He was forecasting living on other planets since at this point the earthwould be too small."New and useful properties gained by earthlings living in these new celestalcountries: amphiby, night vision, perpetual growth of hairs and teeths,indolorism , whitening to the sun etc"Forecasting genetic manipulations:"from their torso a new appendice would grow: used either as a powerfulweapon, to prevent falls, a superb ornament with infinite force anddexterity. Habitants of suns, lactées and ringed planets like saturn areamphibious, by the effect of an ouverture in the casing of their heart, andhave a fifth member common to both sex: the archiarm who can kill an animalin one shot, be used as a whirling parachute, a motor for fake wings, a ropeladder, a swim-aid that gives man the velocity of a fish and thousand ohterpossibilities either on earth or in the seas. The archiarm triplesproductivity of the industry and bring the body at it's ultimate degree ofbiological perfection."
(He too, as I said in another post, could be a promoter of impossiblebodies, but that's another story...)
That ought to be enough for the vision part. A bit frivolous and funny butnot much more than saying that in the future our children will be few andimmensely valued, huanity will have to deal with hypermaturity etc.
On the methodological front, I present you Condorcet who concludes his_Esquisse d'un tableau historique des progrès de l'esprit humain_ bypredicting the end of stupidity, hypocrisy and the emergence of a new bodymade possible by technological, scientific and medical progress.Sounds cutting edge? It was written in 1795. Death is percieved as a hypothesis to be reserved to exceptional cases likeaccidents or rare probabilities. The lenght of life, considerably augmented"get close to for ever (...) an unlimited lenght".So it is : a body who escaped the laws of nature and entropy ...
Genuine ignorance or vanity, it doesn't matter to me: as a group,extropians/transhumanists are a bit too eager to misread their predecesor inorder to make room for themselves...Also, using the structure of an "institute" / "school of philosophy" is amassive philosophical regression, sad, a system of terror, with thepretention of making something new but is a king-sized povrety. I think we have great dreams but extropians don't go at it the right way.Don't even think of calling Fourier and Condorcet proto extropians, please,that would be disingenious for the other way around woud be more logicalsince they are already accepted in the academic network, humanity's commoncultural heritage and they had more historical influence than their currentpoor unsuccessful incarnation: extropianism is just a materialism andrealizing it by droping the usless brand name would be the mature thing todo for it would help in getting credibility and real life traction to ourcommon dreams.Rejoice! You are not an extropian, you are a materialist ! :-)You are part of a tradition and your ideas are accepted more easily.Do I think this post will change anything to the established order? I knowpeople who are branded extropians or transhumanists won't budge, I wrotethis for people who will get interested in these problems of our time, sothey won't needlessly cripple their game.May our dreams be reality!
