Hakim Bey, T.A.Z.
Temporary Autonomous Zone
Cultural assassin, Hakim Bey detonates powerful narrative over a diverse musical landscape. Transmitting visions and attacks upon layers of subjects and situations, technologies, poetic terrorism and on and on. A politics of dream, urgent as the blueness of sky.
Music sound track produced and arranged by Bill Laswell with contributions from Buckethead, Wu Man, Nicky Skopelitis and others.
Everything in nature is perfectly real including consciousness, not only have the chains of the law never been broken, they never existed, demons never guarded the stars, the empire never got started. Ontological anarchism.
