Obsolete Capitalism Sound System
Chaos Sive Natura
Afecsana Blues

Hereby we witness an overturning in the concept of Rhythm as it has been acknowledged since ancient times. From a genealogical, anthropological and ontological point of view, Nietzsche identifies in the rhythm the poetic «compulsion» needed to open the sacred to the profane so to reach the cosmic forces of the future. Deleuze, on the other side, operates a cesura between the «rhythm» seen as the cadence of measure, and the «Rhythm». The Meter of the rhythm is a measure-rule imposed by men to decode any territory, while the pace of the Rhythm is a critic intrusion, an anomaly, a rhythmic singularity, a pure meeting-event among different milieus. Deleuze and Guattari write as follows: “It is well known that rhythm is not meter or cadence, even irregular meter or cadence: there is nothing less rhythmic than a military march (…) Meter, whether regular or not, assumes a coded form whose unit of measure may vary, but in a noncommunicating milieu, whereas rhythm is the Unequal or the Incommensurable that is always undergoing transcoding. Through the above lines runs the echo of experiences marked by the «aleatory music» which strongly influenced XX century contemporary music of artists like Xenakis and Boulez. With an appreciation of Breakbeat science, originally derived from the afrodelic and diasporic tradition, and through the use of its pulsed rhythmic unit - the single beat, Obsolete Capitalism Sound System offers a possibility to overturn the codified rhythm. Dub and breakbeat techniques, sampling and turntablism variate the rhythm dissolving and reworking the metric code, distributing always renewed space-time blocks. ”Every milieu is coded, a code being defined by periodic repetition; but each code is in a perpetual state of transcoding or transduction (…) [the rhythm]  produce[s] a difference by which the milieu passes into another milieu.”
