Mer de Revs II – Music For Insomniacs
A study in deliberately soothing textures designed to give the listener space to find stillness and collapse into rest – late night lullabies.
How To Disappear Completely presents Mer de Revs II, second installment of our experimental sleep music project. Almost eighty minutes of new music composed and recorded over twelve month period (a song per month), 2016/2017.
Recording this album we wanted to keep the same aesthetics – simple as possible, minimal amount of gear as possible. We hope you enjoy our latest release as much as we did recording it and we can’t thank you all enough for your support. As always, thanks for listening.2 hearts
Two years on since his last outing on the label, ‘The Follower’, Axel Willner puts on his Field suit again to present his sixth full-length effort for Kompakt, ‘Infinite Moment’ – which sees him striding further across the deeper, richer rims of the hue cycle. In Willner’s own words, “the threshold of creating something new had to be broken”, as had been done with his past albums, including his acclaimed debut ‘From Here We Go Sublime’.
On this release in particular “stepping outside of the studio opened up fresh perspectives on the creation of new music” he confesses, and it was the opening cut, ‘Made of steel, made of stone’ – the first to be finished, that got him into the flux of things, making the “making of the rest of the album easier as I went”.
Walking Around Shukunegi Village on Sado Island（Niigata, Japan) by Anna Film Production.
Shukunegi is the name of the town at the southernmost tip of Sado City, Niigata Prefecture. It is a port town that developed as a port of kitamae-bune (cargo ships that sailed the Japan Sea during the Edo period) . This town reached its heyday from the late Edo period to the early Meiji period. In 2017, the rows of houses in Shukunegi are designated as a National Important Preservation Area for Traditional Buildings and Architecture.4 hearts

Our dependency is at the heart of the commercial surveillance project, in which our felt needs for effective life vie against the inclination to resist its bold incursions. This conflict produces a psychic numbing that inures us to the realities of being tracked, parsed, mined, and modified.
It disposes us to rationalize the situation in resigned cynicism, created excuses that operate like defense mechanisms (“I have nothing to hide”), or find other ways to stick our heads in the sand, choosing ignorance out of frustration and helplessness.
In this way, surveillance capitalism imposes a fundamentally illegitimate choice that twenty-first century individuals should not have to make, and its normalization leaves us singing in our chains.
Invisibles – exploitation in the digital world of work | DW Documentary.
Services from Amazon, Uber and Airbnb are available at the touch of a screen. Yet who are the workers who fulfill our wishes when we click? How much do they earn? Do their jobs have benefits? This documentary delves into the world of workers behind the apps.
Companies like Facebook, Amazon, Deliveroo, Booking.com and Tinder all have in common that their employees are forming a new, exploited class of digital economy labor. The tens of thousands of people who work in the app sector earn low wages. The filmmakers look at the daily lives of “clickworkers” – the men and women who deliver packages and food, or work high-stress content management jobs for little money.1 heart
