YMO - Floating Away ft. William Gibson

"Narrow puddles of water reflecting fluorescent light
It was very curious
Like discovering a secret level of society
It was an experiment in psychogeography”

Technodon is the seventh and final studio album to date by Yellow Magic Orchestra and released in 1993, a decade after the band’s original breakup. Because the name Yellow Magic Orchestra was owned by former record label Alfa Records, the band were forced to release the album under the name YMO. For the tour that followed, they were billed as Not YMO. Future releases by the band would be made under the names Human Audio Sponge and HASYMO.

The album artwork, designed by Stefan Sagmeister, featured diffraction grating on the CD jewelcase, allowing messages composed by American artist Jenny Holzer to be read through the lens; the text is otherwise illegible. The cover’s text read “Slipping into madness is good for the sake of comparison” when the disc was packaged, but Sagmeister designed the sleeves to be interchangeable.” (x)

"This collaboration between Japanese supergroup and American-Canadian author [William Gibson] is a sweet combination of cultures celebrating their common agenda: to use, represent and influence future with art. Ironically, by 1993, the near-future that cyberpunk’s literature and YMO’s music sought to represent in the eighties was here. The genre’s heyday had been, gone and arrived. “Floating Away” is, thus, a nostalgic track. It is nostalgic for a past that looked to the future; a past that viewed the years to come with enthusiasm." (x)

"Why then would one respond positively to art? As compensation and palliative, because our relationship to nature and life is so deficient and disallows an authentic one. As Motherlant put it, “One gives to one’s art what one has not been capable of giving to one’s own existence.” It is true for artist and audience alike; art, like religion, arises from unsatisfied desire."

"Mankind’s self-alienation has reached such a degree that it can experience its own destruction as an aesthetic pleasure of the first order."
