The anthropological machine
powered by Beethoven
On civilisation as unsuccessful project of taming of man. The Ninth strolls through the entire sound landscape of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. On the one side there is a “masterpiece of the western civilization:” “Giant and complex.” “Sublime.” “Triumphant vision of brotherhood.” On the other side, there’s us: Nothing great about us. Nothing triumphant. Not complex but reduced. Not sublime but explicit. Digital. On or off. Repetitive. Blind by the images that we see, deaf by the sounds we hear. Looking for a connection with the Animal.
