sAY HELLO

The rackety and repetitive anti-cadences of yOUGOTTHATFUNK’s TUNES and PLAYLISTS suggest modernist MUSICALITY itself as the form moved away from universal declarations of world spirit and dwelled more on the interior life and the inability of the individual to convincingly make totalizing remarks about the make up and purpose of existence. One is always waiting for something to happen to make the body’s labors and the mind’s intellectual over achievements cohere with a serenity that comes only when imagination coincides with actual fact. Beckett’s characters are not much less than obsolete machines that still make noise and are able to move their gears involuntarily, at crossroads awaiting the arrival of an unannounced re assignation, cloistered in boxes responding to daylight and sound with responses mimicking the sluggish grind of old gears.
