The West is an insane asylum, a conscious and premeditated receptacle of black magic. – Fred Moten
Meditations on black life in contemporary Europe /Reflections on the rampant violent brutal un/reality of white supremacy /How exhausting, tiresome, laborious it is to maintain this fantasy? The economy of looking and being looked at, spectacle and spectatorship, enjoyment and being enjoyed /How debilitating the level of scrutiny and violence?
Black Metamorphosis is the first installment in a trilogy inspired in part by Sylvia Wynter’s unpublished manuscript of the same title written in the 1970s. I spent most of the last 3 years working on this project, and it has been an eventful few years personally and in my approach to sound. It’s about the complicated process of understanding each other, but also desiring to accelerate the breaking of the world so we can move beyond the constraints of our time and dream up new sets of relationships.– Lamin Fofana
