Stop Making Sense PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Stop Making Sense free pdf Stop Making Sense offers an original and compelling theory of music "from the perspective of the real" as this term is understood according to the Lacanian orientation in psychoanalysis. Specific examples and cases discussed include Freud's melophobia, or fear of music- Che Guevara's revolutionary a-rhythmia- John F. Nash's obsession with "Bach's Little Fugue"- Talking Heads and Asperger's syndrome/autism- Yoko Ono and the sense of "lack" in the Beatles- the role of "Imagine" in the murder of John Lennon- Brian Eno and the digital auto-generation of Freud's 'oceanic feeling'- Aphex Twin and the brain-dance of the hikikomori- and the utopian promise of Merzbow.The first part of the book explains its theoretical and methodological underpinnings that are based in a reading of subjects and symptoms such as amusia. The second and third parts focus on contemporary examples that look at how music has become both a powerful locus of discontent and also a form of orientation in an age of generalized psychosis imposed by neoliberalism as a form of governance. This has been accelerated by the regime of digital telecommunications since the early 1990s, which has seen the emergence of various new symptoms related to the autistic jouissance to which we have been confined with our gadgets and networked computers.
