SOUNDBAG No. 125
update from November 9th, 2003
Until the year 2020 perception will gain an enormous importance with regard to communication. A general aestheticalization (─sthetisierung) will follow. Issues of truth will be outplayed easily by issues of design.
An example for this process is the development of the radio. With broadcasting the word is already today nearly totally pushed to the edges. The word has been superseded by music, talking has been superseded by formatted surfaces of music, and information by timbre. Meaning disappears in sound.
