“Buddhas of Golden Light” (Finlandia, 1984) de Pekka Airaksinen

liquid state…

Pekka Airaksinen is a Finnish composer of electronic music.

Airaksinen formed his first band, The Sperm, in the 1960s. The Sperm mixed elements of avant-garde music with free jazz and psychedelic pop. Their concerts featured confrontational performance art, which resulted in two members being arrested for simulating sexual intercourse and screening pornographic films.

Following The Sperm’s breakup in the early 1970s, Airaksinen turned to Buddhism and ceased making music. He returned to music in the mid 1980s with his album Buddhas of Golden Light, which mixed free jazz with percussion from a Roland 808 drum machine.

In the 1990s, Airaksinen founded the Dharmakustannus label, on which he released numerous CDs and CD-Rs. The music styles of these releases varies considerable, ranging from new age, ambient, house, jazz and improvisation.

#30: The phenomenal world does not exist; it is a hypostasis of the information processed by the Mind.

#35: The Mind is not talking to us but by means of us. Its narrative presents through us and its sorrow infuses us irrationally. As Pluto discerned there is a streak of the irrational in the World Soul

In other words, the universe itself -and the Mind behind it- is insane. Therefore someone in touch with reality is, by definition, in touch with the insane: infused by the irrational.

In essence, Fat monitored his own mind and found it defective. He then, by the use of that mind, monitored outer reality, that which is called macrocosm. He found it defective as well. As the Hermetic philosophers stipulated, the macrocosm and the microcosm mirror each other faithfully. Fat, using a defective instrument, swept out a defective subject, and from this sweep got back the report that everything was wrong.
