“feel flows” is an extrapolation of the 1960s avant-garde jazz music; utilizing the techniques of syncopation, irregular time signatures, atonality, polyphonic dissonance, and the like. i was drawn to these techniques not as a musician, but as someone entirely bored with the monotony of basic predictable patterns in music. in aesthetics, there also exists this problem with scripted forms and so i’ve sought to achieve something that goes beyond the banality of algorithmic legibility and one that goes beyond cheap “jitters”.
what avant-garde jazz did in the ‘60s, was break these pattern signifiers in a way that the patterns could not compute intellectually but could be accessed intuitively; obfuscate. we’re left aporetic. we sense the overall; the time, space, rhythm and flow; that make it up but we can’t predict it, where it’s going, or what it will do. maybe a sorta reverse apophenia.
but enough about jazz…
