"is hyper-speed culture making us more impatient?"
'modern times', an adaption of the famous movie starring charlie chaplin, continues telepherique's conceptual work - creating music on and about basic topics. 'modern times' is about today's working situations, stress, machines overthrowing men and time.
"descartes' dictum, "i think, therefore i am," has been replaced by: "i am connected, therefore i exist.""
'modern times' was recorded by direct interaction between telepherique and roger rotor. despite the convenient 'internet collaborations' that are possible they preferred to record the disc 'live'.
"a new term: 24/7 - around the clock activity, 24 hours a day, seven days a week - is quickly defining the parameters of the new temporal frontier."
face the music: today's merciless rhythm of work and daily life is audible. factory work and disco enjoyment is melting together. no pause, no silence - just hypnotising four-to-the-floor polyrhythmic heart-beats. if you live a '24/7 life' you will recognize the strictness of these never-ending dance-tracks.
