Posted by Jon, onehumanbeing on December 18, 2010

Introducing a new original sound collage from UFOverdriver called:
Dystopia (Is The New Utopian Dream)

…Music to help you party like it’s 1984 – or use it as your getaway soundtrack when you’re on the run from the Suede Denim Secret Police.

Listen Here

Track Information

Track 1 (1:22) You Know What To Do

Track 2 (4:20) I Never Lost Control

Track 3 (3:54) We Will Go

Notes:

It’s been a very busy month for UFOverdriver – lots of recordings and new mixes.

Many of the new sound collages have become, for me, a record of this moment in time when our country is making a hard shift towards dystopia.

Nope is the new Hope, Secrecy is the new Transparency, Censorship is the new Freedom of the Press, Propaganda is today’s FauxNews…

I plan on remixing the material from this period into a bigger piece focusing on this recent dystopian shift. Stay tuned…

List of recent work

Definition: Dystopia

A dystopia (from Ancient Greek: δυσ-: bad-, ill- and Ancient Greek: τόπος: place, landscape) (alternatively, cacotopia,[1] or anti-utopia) is, in literature, an often futuristic society that has degraded into a repressive and controlled state, often under the guise of being utopian.

Dystopian literature has underlying cautionary tones, warning society that if we continue to live how we do, this will be the consequence.

A dystopia, thus, is regarded as a sort of negative utopia and is often characterized by an authoritarian or totalitarian form of government.

Dystopias usually feature different kinds of repressive social control systems, a lack or total absence of individual freedoms and expressions and constant states of warfare or violence. Dystopias often explore the concept of technology going “too far” and how humans individually and en masse use technology.

A dystopian society is also often characterized by mass poverty for most of its inhabitants and a large military-like police force.

They Call Me The Breeze

Posted by Jon, onehumanbeing on December 15, 2010

This week I offer you a break from all the Christmas music you’ve been hearing while you’re out shopping with an experimental mix from UFOverdriver using music and samples from Pink Floyd, Moby, U2 and Spiritualized.

I spent some time on this mix playing with asynchronous beats that sublimely change relationship over the course of the piece.

I made several versions of this piece with extra media material mixed into it – but the “clean” mix of music works very well on it’s own, so here is the podcast only (and here on the website of course) mix of They Call Me The Breeze – Run Baby Run On Mix – Club Version.
