Music for the End of the World 05 – Evgeny Bylina

16/03/20 Music for the End of the World 05 – Evgeny Bylina

COVID-19, economic crisis, endless presidency and political stagnation — the coming storm is getting harder to ignore and “the end of the world” seems to be in its fullest (not being a burst, but a gradual decomposition). The word “self-isolation” has become a marker of reality: the virus, as well as capitalism, delegates responsibility to an individual, locking us up in fragile high-rises and restricting access to the collective body.

However, perceiving crisis and pause as a means of interrupting the linear time and a resource of alternative thought isn’t new. Probably that’s why the 5th episode of Music for the End of the World turns to new-age related electronic music. It’s not interested in the esoteric contents of such arts, but in its manner of dealing with reality — through constant reinvention of collective subjectivity and search for new utopian horizons.

The selection includes some classic tracks and archive reissues, along with music released via modern niche cassette labels. Some oversights in the tracklist are possible.
