Stratum/Ultrablack Of Music

Stefan Paulus – Stratum
taken from the forthcoming Mille Plateaux book/compilation „Ultrablack of Music“ in March 2020

»A pure material beyond musical structures serves here to generate sound that is a-signifying in its becoming, that is, the sound belongs neither to language nor to meaning; it is not a song, although it may appear as such. Deterritorialization means to hear-think sound as undecidability (between audible and inaudible). From the outset, then, music would no longer even be organized sound, but the diagrammatic constitution of a counterfactual space-time, which in addition enables a transformation of hearing within the possibilities offered by such a sound-music« (Achim Szepanski 2018)
