Meditation und Stress

Wider das ausschliessliche Begreifen-Wollen in Kausalzusammenhängen – versteifen uns diese nicht schon deshalb, weil sie eine eindeutige Wirkrichtung festschreiben? (Zack, Kausalzusammenhang. Die Falle lauert nahezu immer und überall.)
Und für das Oszillieren zwischen Meditation und Stress als künstlerische Praxis.

Ich erlaube mir diese Textstelle aus Peter Sloterdijks “Der ästhetische Imperativ” (I. KLANGWELT – Wo sind wir, wenn wir Musik hören?) aus seinem ursprünglichen Zusammenhang herauszuzerren und hier anzufügen:

“Will ich etwas begründen, beweisen, erreichen, so verzerrt dieser Vorsatz das hörende Verhältnis zu den aktuell mich durchziehenden Gedanken. “Ich denke” dann bereits an etwas anderes als an den flüsternden Ton des gegenwärtigen Denkens. Ich wäre – wie Descartes – meinem Suchen nach Gründen in solchem Grade hörig, dass ich nicht bemerke, wie innere Stimmen, gegenwärtig gewiss, in mir arbeiten. Ehrgeiz macht taub – auch in der Erkenntnistheorie. Es scheint, als gäbe es zwischen konstruktiver Ambition und meditativer Aufmerksamkeit ein radikales Ausschließungsverhältnis. Wer konstruiert, hört sich nicht; wer es in sich klingen oder reden hört, kann nicht gleichzeitig konstruieren.”

Announcement: Clash Mob #1 in Berlin Tempelhof

 

We are going to play an improvised mass music and march along the runway of the historic airport Berlin Tempelhof. Join us, bring a portable instrument, just play on one single tone. Recording devices are welcome.

Start: close to the entrance Oderstrasse at 8:30 p.m. (in order to enjoy warmth and light of the sunset). MAY 15, 2012
We play for the sun and for the birds. If you want to record yourself while playing please do it and put the file on a public server. It would be lovely to hear loads of mixes and to see various clips of this very moment after the mob.
Please find details, info on coordination and peers on the unavoidable Lump200 facebook site.

I think that we will achieve the most interesting result (music!) if everyone reduces from what he or she really can. That is why I suggest that every musician (professionals and amateurs are equally welcome!) just plays on one tone and tries to find the precise moments in the texture to place it.

Come as you are, bring your friends and please respect the rules of the park.
The plan is that we start in time, play for some 20 and something minutes and then leave the park within the opening ours (till 9:30 p.m.).
