- Our world was always fallen but there was always light.
- Damaged music is a metaphor for this world.
- Music was always celebratory, but there was always sorrow.
- For liberation lies in that which is shattered.
- Designed to merge engineered to transcend.
- Liberation follows that which is broken.
- Something you catch.
- As you’re scanning for distress calls.
- Long live the lost ones.
Album title by Cory Salveson, encryption key by Matthew Marx, distress signals by Dan Derks, music by Tyler Etters.

infographic about the stuxnet worm
stuxnet is theorized to have been the first piece of weaponized computer code. it was (is?) malware that infected iran’s nuclear enrichment centrifuges in 2009. specifically, it caused mechanical failures that resulted in extremely costly physical damage to the infrastructure.
cybergothic materialism. bits and bytes become smoke and flames. an incantation from another plane. this is not science fiction. this is now decades old history. never mind the half century old soviet spaceships collecting dust…
a few years prior to seeing zero days i had discovered vatican shadow and the photographer trevor paglen something really clicked, artistically. i was used to reading critiques and articles on the military but, in my experience, very few artists in any medium interrogate our relationship to the endless war. it feels taboo.

from a blog post i wrote in 2019:
I didn’t know what to “do” with the Iraq War. Support it? Protest it? Talk to people about it? Enlist to a military academy? Is that even a thing? Those stern looking fellas from the Army and Navy sometimes have tables setup in the cafeteria. Surely they’d know what to do?
My closest mental model was all the action and science fiction films I saw. Needless to say, it wasn’t a clean 1:1 mapping. Iraq is sorta like Arrakis and oil is sorta like the spice, right? But… then we’re the Harkonens? That can’t be right. Maybe this was more like Starship Troopers? Err, there’s some problems there too…
Studying the war in real time caused my narrative and framing of America and humanity as a whole to shift. I learned about the Iraq War before I learned about World Wars 1 and 2. With grade school only 3 years behind me, my mental history of America was largely dominated by folksy tales of George Washington throwing a silver dollar across the Rappahannock River and Paul Bunyan digging out the great lakes for his ox to drink from. Yeah. Vertigo.
9/11 quite literally coincided with the end of my childhood: I turned 13 that year. My entire adult life has been in its the shadow. I share this not to paint myself a victim, but to illustrate how I relate to the world has been utterly warped by it. It has become so overbearing and inescapable to the point of becoming forgettable.
If my life were to be made a movie, 9/11 would be the MacGuffin. That cataclysmic event or hyperobject that happens in act 1 and drives action for the rest of the ride, unquestioned, uncontested. I would venture this is true for all us millenials in the states.

Yet I don’t think this is “too much” experimentation at all. In an age of content, it feels really nice to turn the whole thing inside out and welcome the world along the journey with me. And why shouldn’t this be interesting? The old axiom, “it’s the journey, not the destination,” rings especially true here. I’m opening up one of my most personal and intimate experiences to the world and it is exhilarating.
there’s a lot going on here. from voyeurism and self surveillance to the ache for community in the age of the pandemic. not to mention the incredible musical possible afforded by the likes of monome and elektron.
the STUXNET project doubles as an educational vector. if you have the patience to learn the new internet protocol called gemini, you’re rewarded with free download codes. the CIPHER SUITE tracklist is a very short survey of cryptographic concepts.

TIME'S FIREWALL (demo)
- Time’s Firewall
- Fractal’s Edge
At the behest of an anonymous agent, the Northern Information Applied Sciences & Phantasms Working Division agreed to the impossible: rationalize the numogram for the post-pandemic age.
It is accepted that the numogram first manifested in the 90s via research from the CCRU. However, newly unearthed forensic evidence from The tf.nist.gov Timeserver Incident has cast a shadow of doubt on the true provenance.
After the NIAS&PWD design scientist rationalized the numogram into a mathematically pure vector format, new sonic pathways were unlocked for STUXNET. The dossier was delivered and lead to yet more revelations: the existence of what can only be described as a time firewall. And, perhaps more unsettling, “fractal edges” thereby calling into question the very foundations of topology, Euclidean space, and recursion dynamics.
Intertext formally published a request for support in understanding the implications of these twin entities on April 18, 2021.
