Birds & Politics

We can draw an analogy between birds, and their organisation, and how political parties operates. It’s a game, in the end.

Let’s take a group of birds sitting on a nice tree, which would represent a given political group. Those birds seems to operate randomly, at first, but in fact they are, more or less, governed by what mathematicians call “Game Theory“. For the untrained eye, it’s all random, but there is an hidden order, a hierarchy, like in a political group.

If one observe a group of birds, they’ll notice that they are few leaders and a bunch of followers. For birds, the leaders (maybe 1 to 4 birds) would seek a better tree for themselves. They can be followed by the birds sitting on the old tree or they can end up all alone on the new one, waiting for new birds to join them. Sometimes, feeling all alone on a tree, those leaders would come back to the previous tree, because they failed to create something new. They played and lost.

The analogy with politics can be pretty obvious. There are also leaders and followers in politics. Leaders tend to seek out to be the most popular on their political group and if not, if the group fails, they can either quit politics or create a new group, a new movement. If they fail in this new movement, they may try to return to their previous group… But that can be seen odd for their old colleagues.

And that’s maybe the main difference between birds and humans, because we are not ruled by our unconscious mind (like birds, it seems), we have some free will (that’s another debate) and we have evolved from those cute creatures 🙂

Slow Motion (album)

Author message:
Here we are dear Torrentech folks, my latest album of reworks and remixes is out there and I have to say this will be my last on here. Torrentech has been a great adventure, but I need to seek out other ways of distributing my stuff, maybe unconventional ways like this project we did with Really Records: putting usb keys with tracks on them in a forest. This album is my way of saying goodbye and goodluck for this great netlabel, always open for challenging music.

As for the album itself, as the name would suggest, it’s mainly based on tracks and samples which the speed is lowered. It seems there is a whole movement of this kind now, and I think it’s an effect of our increasing rapid society. People seem to run out of time constantly and I’m one of those who would gently say… calm the fuck down and breathe! But this album is more than just reducing speeds, it mixes different attitudes, languages, sound producing technologies, to try and bring this diversity in an eclectic album. Now that I have listened to it multiple times I can say it has an ever deeper message, but that’s something you have to find out. I created it without thinking too much about it, just feeling it (I’m like a zombie controlled by a subconscious process while creating music hahaha). The analysis always comes afterwards. So, what’s your interpretation? And most importantly, does it move you emotionally?

Review:
Slow Motion album by Re-Drum. A collection of remixes for some well known and famous artist + 1 original track. A concept that joins all these tracks together is slowing down of samples and loops from original tracks. Overall feeling of the album is ambiental and relaxing, but in the same time very psychedelic. Exception from this format is track 6 which is pure techno madness, a real underground beast which pulsates hypnotically. This is supposed to be the last Re-Drum’s release on Torrentech netlabel. That fact kind of make sad, but I fully understand his decision, we’re really a small underground netlabel and it’s almost a miracle when the artist of his calibre gives that much music for free. Re-Drum obviously understood our intention to release only good stuff, and nothing but a good stuff was coming from his kitchen! Thanks Re-Drum, huge thanks!
