Digital Magma – Jean-Yves Leloup
Leloup has the perfect name for the job, and a spiffy line in extended metaphors, so marvel at his “swirling magma” of music, DJs, producers and listeners. He reckons today’s electronic music – virtual, networked, playlisted and raved to – is a handy guide to how we’ll do everything in future. Hard to deny, really. If you like flowery academic language this is for you; if you decode it you’ll realise he’s not actually saying anything very radical. David Toop’s intro is nice.
