You arrive late at night, wired and buzzed for a full night of entertainment,
a kaleidoscope of different feelings, colors, beats, people, melodies, emotions,
and experiences. You've been psyched all week to be here, to immerse yourself
for hours of exploration where you lose all sense of what the outer world is
like and become someone else, something else.
You delve into the crowd and are picked up by the lip of a wave of rhythm and
like that you are taken out of your former self, only to appear once again
seven hours later, exhausted, disoriented, and blissed out.
"Avec une pomme, je
veux étonner Paris."
Such an experience should not be unlike reading someone's personal web site.
benturner.com attempts to create such an intense experience. Few people will
show you more about themselves in essays on a personal site than here.
For now, I mean to introduce VBT Mordekai, my newest project,
currently in pre-production but already a raging force inside
my mind. Mordekai wishes you to have a good time, and to let it all hang out. You
live only once, so you might as well fucking enjoy it.
Oh, and one more thing: Mordekai is pro-Napster. Virtually denying
that music is infectious and that software is the prime medium for
unlimited viral transmission of such communicable phatness is your
farewell ticket out of the music industry of the future. So you want
to declare ownership of your "art". Big deal, this is a personal web
site, it's "art", and you can share anything you want from it
as long as you acknowledge it's mine. For free. Forever.
