Notes for a Quasi-living Theory :::

The fact that Nietzsche’s chaotic spatialization is similar to Beethoven’s, clearly shows up when we ask ourselves What is Chaos for Nietzsche? It is an abyssal continuum which moves per motu proprio and that has been freed from divinity, order and aims: an inscrutable «ring» spinning around without a centre and where all dynamic peripheries represent lines of energy in a never ending metamorphosis. Pure blurry nature. In the first movement there is a chaotic incipit represented by the imitation of the tuning of the musical instruments in the interval of the initial chord. This «technique» enables Allegro ma non troppo to express a sonic undetermined which recalls the chaotic, primordial, indistinct limbo of Nature.

Nietzsche’s topological and ontological indetermination of his idea of a chaotic continuum may be compared to the feeling of uncertainty that Beethoven conveys through the wild blurry and dissonant musical outcomes of his first movement. The «head» of the musical theme of the first movement has melted in a plurality of combined sonic plans. With relevance Nietzsche will write in his aphorism n°109, inspired to the concept of Chaos sive Natura, that the chaos “must never be called an [anthropic] melody” because as Messiaen says, “music is not the privilege of human beings: the universe and the cosmos are made by refrains”. The sonic theme of Chaos, far from being solely a harmonious link to human realm, passes through Nature as an escaping force from the nets men have arranged for it. The problem will be then how to make an alliance with the powerful chaos forces, disputing men’s «false privilege» and reaching the place where the «big universal noise» - in opposition to Boethius’ musica mundana - clashes with the micro-noise singularities of the contemporary and future machines of men.
