Noise

noise: the politics of digital audio is an audio/visual essay that examines the dynamic interconnections between politics, technology and music. in particular, noise focuses on the increasing power and availability of home computer technology and the influence this has on the the shape and operation of the social totality, marked by the influence of global capitalism. in this context, the notion of noise becomes a cipher and a herald to be examined for possible, progressive social change.

Someone keeps repeating what I sing one million years before it’s sung; it doesn’t make me feel good(4). [But] it’s a beautiful day(5). (9:11, 2002)

Auto-erotic

movie-13

 

I’ve been slower than most to realize that I live in an automobile dominated society. I like it when I have a car. I love it. I hate it though that everyone else also has a car. Auto-erotic presents a series of auto ads. The images have not been manipulated in any way. They are what they are. They appeal to every kind of auto purchaser. The visuals taken alone just show cars, but it’s the music that really makes the sell. The music brands the consumer.

Monkey

movie8

DOPE – where to begin? Pot, booze, cigarettes, crystal, coke, psychedelics, heroin and pills – thanks to the peer pressure of my brother I started imbibing at the age of 9. Mass availability of substances – expedient delivery service in 5 minuets or less. Does technology play a role in this? Does the youth of today have a hope in hell avoiding it? Perhaps a product of my environment – or the times: whatever, I invite you to take this journey with me — Joe Sarahan

I guess I miss my drugs

movie-16

Psychedelics and Stimulants: two types of drugs that worked for me during the respective times in my life when I was doing them. Everyone has his own drug. It becomes an assertion of identity. I chose acid when I was in my late teens, full of angst and making my mind goofy felt right. I did coke in my mid-twenties when I thought I was cool. No social commentary, just a guy who sometimes thinks– when he¹s bored– that maybe he would be happier getting high.
