TRANSIENCE #26 with diser tape
11 May 2020
It is undeniable that we are living in uncertain times. For those of us failing
to fit the patriarchal neoliberalist mould, we have lost hope in the future. We
can see capitalism is not working but we cannot yet envisage an alternative. In
a world where security is no longer feasible, the only constant we can rely on
is change. Regardless of one’s point of reference, we can understand that every
aspect of life, physical and mental is in flux and perhaps this transience is
the only thing we can depend on.
This month we have invited diser tape to ruminate on these ideas and create an hour
of relief from these anxieties. A temporary suspension of reality, where the
listener can speculate on alternate modes of existence that reject
hetero-patriarchal systems of oppression.
diser tape is an experimental electronic duo based in Kyiv that creates cross-genre music with a focus on dub sound. They try to draw listeners’ attention to the smallest details of their tracks. In sound creation they combine dry algorithmically generated sounds with softness of thing sensations and timbres.
The duo has released three full-length albums: octane (2016), parce que c’était lui parce que c’était moi (2017), and dry machine (2020).
The intro track is Rubber Beach by N Chambers
This episode is comprised entirely of diser tape's studio jams and productions as well as recordings from Christopher Nolan's film "Following”, and readings from “The Book of Disquiet” by Fernando Pessoa
