De jour en jour le besoin s'impose d'avantage. Il ne se prête plus guère à une considération détachée. La stylistique appliquée n'est pas l'observation du réel.

Eu olho para Ti, e tenho medo, minha querida… Eu vejo-Te despida num sonho purpúreo e diabólico, e sinto nojo… e sinto vontade de vomitar, meu amor….

Classwar Karaoke

Operated by Adrian Beentjes (usa-uk), Anthony Donovan (uk) and Jaan Patterson (de), Classwar Karaoke is based around a series of ongoing quarterly surveys. Each act contributes a piece of music or film, an image, and a piece of writing.

As a project, classwar karaoke is based around a series of ongoing, quarterly surveys, the first of which, dubbed '0001 survey', was released in May 2008. Each survey is different - in terms of personnel, number of personnel, and in terms of theme. Participation is fairly open - so long as those interested in being involved work intelligently within the broad context of experimental music and do not seek to use the project as just another on-line shop-window for their material. So far, the inclusive nature of classwar karaoke has worked wonderfully-well in terms of quality of material. See and hear for yourself by checking out our internet archive pages. Indeed, the label itself was envisaged, from the very start, as an experiment in the positive power which inclusivity can have upon artworking if included in meaningful ways. That said, we reserve the right to maintain the quality of both the art which is offered and the community from which it comes. Our ambitions for the label do not stop at periodic on-line releases. In the short time it has been running, we have already had  one  classwar  karaoke  live  showcase;  which  featured  as  0005  survey.  More  events  are  planned. Similarly, physical releases - of CDRs and DVDs - are forthcoming.

All material remains the property of the respective artists and is offered for free download in line with this license. The nine surveys published so far feature almost one-hundred artists, from all over the world; and the material in toto represents significant documentation of the experimental scene itself. Involvement in the project has helped spawn many fruitful collaborations, live-shows and a vibrant exchange of ideas; so much so that, for several repeat-participants, Classwar Karaoke is as much a collective as it is a mechanism for the release of new material.

Ansiamos a instituição da livre circulação e transmissão de objectos da criação intelectual abstracta. Como forma de acesso dos comuns mortais a realidades outras; como forma de incentivar cada indivíduo a criar a sua própria realidade. O Homem não é; o Homem é uma potência do que pode vir a ser. E nós ambicionamos o Homem-outro. Não confiamos no intelecto humano quando este se constroi encima da total ignorância sobre o absoluto da matéria. Apenas constatamos a intelectualidade que nasce da experimentação directa de um objecto material. O mundo tomba sob o peso de cada teoria nova baseada em velhas teorias do absurdo humano. Nós não nos baseamos nas velhas teorias. Nós não nos baseamos em nada. Construimos realidade. A nossa.
