ernesto en berlin

Cheats of the month

1. TO BE FOOLED BY BEAUTY
This could be described as the main sickness of a time where beauty and goodness are being put together again. Despite the hard work of our friends from the advertisement agencies , we have to say that beauty , always according to our experimental investigation, is closely connected to excellence on cheating. It s the main value and the main good.
Musically we despise all those guys telling us about the beauty of, let s say mozart or, let s say paul Mc Cartney. Sorry .Beauty is not what we are looking for.

2.TO BE FOOLED BY MODERNITY
I d call it „berliner fever“. The modernity , you know ,breaking the rules to make use of the our sacred individuality.. This kind of modernity is actually very old. So please don t even dare to pronounce the word „minimal“. Less is less.

3.TO BE FOOLED BY TECNIQUE
All those guys from prenzlauer berg carrying their expensive lap tops. Or all those guitarrists talking about scales... Ar all those guys talking about resolution. Their industrial categories are basically out of fashion. Industry is no better than countryside. Enlightment is no better than middle age.
Lots of examples concerning this small topic. For example those photographers carrying their last digital canon whatever and doing shitty pictures. Art Students with the most expensive computers. Productors with huge mixing boards but unable to...

4. TO BE FOOLED BY THE „ABSTRACT“
More or less the same than the cheat of modernity. Abstract is boring. Sorry. I don t want to think about what i see. I don t want to ask myself about the cultural conventions of my vision.

5. TO BE FOOLED BY UGLINESS
Another perversion. Just in order not to fall in the trap of the fashion or the politics of spectacle, some people become (towards the exterior) demanding and very confrontative to the policy of beauty- goodness that s running the Aesthetical-Ethical world.
Ugliness can be even worse that beauty when ugliness is supposed to be the right choice in a circle of people trying to diferentiate themselves from the rest just by chosing ugliness.
In music, ugliness is definetely better than beauty if you understand under beauty „production technique“. Anyway don t be so proud and try to give to your people something as a result of something you ve been thinking about for sometime.
The ugliness of experimentation can be seen in Berlin everyday. People escaping from the dictadure of beauty might find it good, but after a while you realize that ugliness is just a way to differentiate themselves from the other "artists".It s a matter of marketing.
