In intricate dance against the tyranny of the oppressive force of analytic logic, carried by the euphoric chaos of these streets, we present an urgent yet convincing argument in refutation of the priority of epistemology over ontology.
Modal manipulations manifest musically in a bizarre world in which if A then not A.
The sceptical threat remains a constant worry as the complex contingencies of beats and melodies force us to re-confront the ordinary.
The transparency of the self is obscured in an effort to become the possibility of impossibility. We encounter a hammer first and foremost as a hammer, not a wooden vessel.
In a pre-ontologic quest to make present the distant, we reawaken the question of Being.
Traditional time signatures and diatonic harmonies refuse to explain the uncanny melodies that permeate through the crowds of rickshaw wallas, deteriorating ambassadors, goats and cows. We provide a contemporary urban aesthetic justification of the modern day ethical.
