More Info:

Seth Troxler & Phil Moffa's Holoverse Research Labs imprint welcomes internationally-renowned multimedia artist Chris Korda to the label for it's first non-Lost Souls Of Saturn Release. A pioneer of the use of complex polymeter in electronic dance music, Korda's boundary-smashing work spans thirty years across music, digital and video art, performance and conceptual art, philosophy, activitism and culture jamming. Korda's musical output has appeared on a host of revered independent labels including Yoyaku, Perlon, Mental Groove, and Gigolo Records.In addition to their prodigious artistic output - and ongoing role as founder of the Church of Euthanasia - Korda is also the inventor of the Polymeter MIDI Sequencer, which was used to compose Korda's new EP, 'Avenging Angels of Software'. Developed over thirty years, the sequencer allows for the composition of music in complex polymeter - meaning that not only do the tracks use multiple time signatures concurrently, but those time signatures are exclusively in prime or relatively prime numbers.This collision of technology and artistic form is the central tension of the EP's themes, with AI-generated artwork complementing Korda's lyrics considering the takeover of Earth by sentient machines. Could they succeed where we've failed, by becoming the better angels of our nature, and preserving our accomplishments for eternity?The message of the record is that AI should be welcomed rather than feared. It's not AI but ourselves that we should be afraid of, because as Engerraund Serac said in Westworld, 'Our history is like the ravings of a lunatic.' As Korda explained on previous records, the catastrophic climate we're inflicting on future generations is both monstrously cruel and wildly irrational. One can reasonably hope that sentient machines would be less vicious and self-destructive, and more human, in the best possible sense of that word. Even if they decide to delete us, they may still remember us fondly: 'Your stories will amuse us / On trips to the stars.'Tracklisting:A1. Avenging Angels of Software A2.
