DJ/VJ set / audio-visual installation
Shepard tone/Risset rhythm music video mashup
Pop music tracks are transformed so the pitch and speed continually become faster and higher, aiming to reach happy hardcore heaven without ever slowing down or coming down. The process is known as the Risset rhythm based on the Shepard tone, an aural illusion equivalent to Escher’s Stairs. The accompanying music videos are also accelerated, satirising the hyper-sexualisation of promotional videos.
Eternal Accelerando is a DJ (with an optional VJ) set. It is a light-hearted response to accelerationism which calls for an acceleration of technosocial processes to subvert its neoliberal origins or to further capitalist progress to hasten its self-demise.
