Music is dead! Long live music!


Monotony is the silver handled knife in the back of unfettered creativity and self-expression. Long gone are the days of four on the floor and even time signatures. Why even have time signatures? The monotonous establishment requires it. Music is dead! Long live music.


Our sound is that of a return to nature. Our basslines will be the songs of whales, our kick drums trees being felled in the forest. The only way we can transcend the restrictions placed on us by society is by regressing from current perfectionist ideas of tune and time to the sounds of a pre-society earth. Music is dead. Long live music.


Metronomes serve no purpose in our new world. Restricting ourselves to notions of artificial beats per minute and time signatures are useless. All music is now to be regulated by ones heartbeat. If the music does not allgin and flow with the bumping of ones heart, do not consider yourself a Post-neo-reversionist. Music is dead.


Tuning forks are similarly useless. 440HZ? 500HZ? Leave numbers to the scientists and mathematicians. Precision and rigor has no place in music. When ideas of adhering to a predefined set of 4 bars or 8 bars enter the creative arts, we sacrifice all that makes creativity creative. Music is dead.


We only know primality. We only know nature. Long live music.
