»SHUSH SYSTEMS is thrilled to announce the discovery of the FIELD OF SHUSH at the intersection of the SHUSH MERIDIAN and the SHUSH HORIZON. The FIELD OF SHUSH is teeming with encrypted shushes. SHUSH SYSTEMS will continue to mine and distribute SHUSH, packaged in products like SHUSHTONES, so that those who are unable or unwilling to mine SHUSH may nevertheless enjoy some of its benefits.« (Claire Tolan)
… looking for rhythmic allies in a world resonating
if sound is vibration in the air, resonating in our bodies, music consists of a pulse: a rhythm that dissects reality; that is the air moving plus a perceived difference. music is frequencies filtered by our bodies & mind, that is by languages, tonalities, different tuning systems, different tools. We are trying to trigger an active listening process and to experience music as art out of a fluid social context, out of liquid relations. we try not to pay attention to value systems, high- and subculture dichotomies. our emphasis lies on the politics of aesthetics. we are interested in the re-combination of the senses, arts & models of thought and communication of like-minded people. sharing a momentum, sharing an environment and a communal experience.
aware of the idealism that is fuelling this idea, we find it necessary to push things out of the box and speculate on something to happen.
o)) SENSES AND HEART-BEATS
if rhythm is a phenomenological condition, then the intended organisation of rhythm in time & space needs to be reflected also in its social context. rhythm is intertwined with our perception, in fact it is the very foundation of our perception. it cuts into reality, so our reality turns perceptible to us. we are interested in the various paces, complexities and corporeal effects of different musical styles. we are trying to look for the politics behind rhythmic social and aesthetic structures to eventually extract the polyrhythmic pulsations of an open community.
our aim is to render visible the communal ground we stand on. that means on a substantial base to reflect upon shared working and living conditions. the realisation of this festival touches inescapably on topics of precarious working conditions and disturbing economic realities, most people involved in the field of arts & culture experience. catalyzing a political momentum of this intersection is an obvious concern and necessary next step.
we’re interested in open systems, relational models, meshes, cryptology, cross-referential thinking, different paces, schisms, spasms, speculations & belief systems, poetry, corporeality & noises, …. It’s all about breath, pulse & paces, the body, the world surrounding us and the languages&idiosyncrasies resulting from that.

»The scale is 128 resonant frequencies chosen via experimentation and philosophy, each relating to a specific human bio-resonance, or psychology, traditional mysticism or belief, physics, astronomy, maths, chemistry.« (A. Perälä on Colundi Sequence)
and eventually it’s about friendship, really…
