SELF # 4 | Wa Wu We – Clism
To release a new piece of music, it would seem, is to enter a competition for approval and appearances: who will play that track and how many will follow. Likes. Clicks. Transient signs of appreciation, or perhaps just vague nods of confirmation. But what about all those values inherent in music that just can’t be quantified? If merely one single person would listen to these songs and find herself or himself genuinely moved by them, wouldn’t it be worth it? We think so. We really do.
Because just like Magritte’s pipe wasn’t a pipe, this is not a record. This is an invitation. An embracement. You see, this round disc may be white, but it is not empty. It is filled with our creativity. Our time. And now we would like you to fill this plain, white sleeve with your creativity and your time. We want you to share this with us. To be a part of this release. To be apart of our SELF.
This music spoke to you in some way, and now we want you to speak to us. The language is up to you – do whatever you feel like! Some of you will paint, some of you will print, some of you will do things we couldn’t even think of. All of you will be a part of the movement. A movement against the one-sidedness of the producer-consumer relationship. A movement against the hurried Zeitgeist. A movement against the grain.
We are the Swedish Electronic Liberation Front.
We don’t have customers. We don’t have followers.
We only have members.
And you’re invited to join us.
