    Screen-capture from http://archive.turbulence.org/works/earos "Experiments in Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) using two reel-to-reel machines in an attempt after Konstantin Raudive & William Burroughs to establish contact with the dead. In the 21C electromagnetic tape is an anachronism. Dead media unwinds time from its spools. The dead are no longer human; and when the inhuman expire, do the inhuman become more human than human, at the moment of death? Two electromagnetic machines capture the unfolding of an era in which memory encodes the loving caress of electron imprinted tape. Two tape machines in tandem share their memories, silent at first but slowly amplified through continuous re-recording & simultaneous playback. Time out of joint falls in & out of tape sync; more inhuman than human loops the frequency. “I wanted my human experience with machinic love to have the intensity of a hands-on relationship.” Thus, van Veen turned to reel-to-reel (RTR) tape machines and Konstantin Raudive’s experiments with blank media in which he attempted to record the ‘voices of the dead’. (Little did van Veen know that John Hudak was exploring similar terrain in Voices from the Paradise Network.) ""This led to a series of investigations of the sonic realm arising between two networked R2R machines, a simple mixer and a DSP processor (to add spatialization and stereo channel manipulation to sometimes mono signals). These investigations revealed a performative realm, a space to improvise and to develop a capacity to ‘play’ the machines, or rather tweak & twiddle their hard knobs into spasms of ecstasy, cries of joy &, at times, moans of despair. The machines sang to me & each other, & I was drawn into the deadzone…”"

            Trust your gut feeling. It is not based on logic. Inspired by William S. Burroughs' Naked Lunch. From the 1950s Beat Generation. Naked Lunch 1959 by William S. Burroughs: Burroughs stated that the chapters are intended to be read in any order, no logical order. The vignettes are drawn from Burroughs' own experience in these places, and it contains content dealing with same-sex relations, pedophilia, sex, violence and his addiction to drugs. The reader follows the narration of junkie William Lee, who takes on various aliases, from the US to Mexico, and the dreamlike Interzone. Related Authors: Allen Ginsberg's Howl (1956), and Jack Kerouac's On the Road (1957) are among the best known examples of Beat literature.
