About This Video

The thought on my mind while creating this was – how easy it is for a State to slide into Fascism when people with good intentions are motivated by fear.

Video collage material created from samples of Frank Capra’s Why We Fight World War II propaganda film.

Music and Video by UFOverdriver (ufoverdriver.com) and Jon, onehumanbeing (onehumanbeing.com)

…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.
