FM Module is back!.. to start with a look back at the past three seasons. Today we dive into the narratives and images of the first season, summed up in one episode, including topics: Radio, Virus, Apparatus, Resistance, Silence, Time, Interface, and Ocean. It will be bigger, louder, more sophisticated. Track list 1. Lichtenberg: A […]
We celebrate Radio Day with the third season finale of FM Einheit’s podcast FM Module. Today we are listening to the Confession. With its purpose to address all corners of the soul to the transcendental, it absorbs a person’s sins and at the same time draws in their past. Where are the boundaries of guilt […]
The Byzantine authors just imitated the classical ones, without creating anything original. Their literature is a crooked mirror, where you can’t get to the facts through parables. The Christian Empire had no sense of humour; each text was a theological preachment. We refute these and other stereotypes in a new episode of our podcast — […]
Older than the rarest artefacts and still irreplaceable, existing outside of the human body and inseparable from the human mind, reporting military secrets and whispering love confessions — the new episode of the Module is about the Voice. Track list 1. Batman brät Fische (FM Einheit) 2. Mindpower (excerpt) (Paul deMarinis) 3. Rosettas Tanz (Stein […]
The instinctual and orgasmic representative in Freudianism; the preserve of Kairos, the god of favorable moments; the oldest media available to us — all this is the human voice. We’ll have a closer look at the spoken word in the new episode of FM Module. ⠀ Siegfried Zielinski: «Transferred into a package of data, you […]
What do you associate the stairs with? Probably, just with moving up or down, with an extremely clear vertical arrangement of both physical and conceivable space. In the latest episode of the Module, we, as ever, reveal an obvious image. Through the prism of the texts by Wittgenstein and Freud, Kafka and Joyce, Tom Waits […]
How does a person manage excess resources? To what extent do we resemble the simplest living systems in our (ir)rationality? The new episode of the FM Module by FM Einheit considers the fundamental principles of spending. In his book La Part maudite, the French philosopher Georges Bataille writes: “The living organism, in a situation determined […]
An experience got through shock, a beauty seen through pain… How does a person explain their complicated relationship with art through the concepts of “pathos” and “pathetic”? In a new episode of our podcast, we trace the evolution of two categories through the centuries, from the Homeric epics to Tchaikovsky’s lyricism, from the works of […]
“Speak you too,speak as the last,say out your say. Speak —but don’t split off No from Yes.Give your say this meaning too:give it the shadow.” The Episode 20 of the Module dedicated to Paul Celan’s centenary features his poems put to the music of FM Einheit. The say of the outstandingly profound and subtle 20th […]
All fluctuates — lives — sounds — glows. This interpretation of glow has inspired the Episode 19 of FM Module. Back in the early 19th century, far ahead of its time, the idea of all-encompassing living energy was expressed by German romanticist and physicist Johann Wilhelm Ritter.
From the “wildest Russian nihilism” to the unfading classics. In a new episode of our podcast, we share a lecture on the history of the Violin Concerto in D major by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, its performance and interpretation. In view of the composer’s 180th anniversary, it is the right time to look at the evolution […]
Episode 18 of FM Module focuses on skin, or on sensitivity to be exact. Or, to be as precise as possible, it focuses on the boundaries of our consciousness. The organic shell which divides us from the world and also connects us to it is apparently a display of the discrete nature of existence. The […]
Freedom is just another name of the point of no return. Or is it? Where does freedom come from, and why does one need it? Free will emerges from the moment of uncertainty, the gap between the past and the future. You can open up a depth of opportunities and gain everything there is to […]
What was Alfred Schnittke’s attitude towards his own works? What kind of intricate connection did he see between sacred and worldly music? How were his scores created and performed when the aesthetic norms of their time were too tight for them? We are going to get the answers to these and many other questions in […]
Titled “Pure Music”, episode 16 of FM Module consists of 11 previously unreleased tracks recorded in 1998–1999 by FM Einheit along with Finnish electronic music heroes Mika Vainio and Ilpo Vaisanen of Pan Sonic fame.
Perhaps the most lyrical one so far, episode 12 of FM Module is dedicated to Erika Stucky, a Swiss-American singer who has just been awarded the Swiss Grand Prix for Music 2020. “Always pure avant garde, always pure joy” are the words the organizers use to describe the work of Stucky, “the master of blues […]
Episode 15 of FM Module is titled "Pane e vino". It views food from a metaphysical standpoint, diving into the philosophical context of pasta and the "chef" aspect of music composition.
In the new podcast episode, you can hear a recording of a lecture by Father Kirill (Kopeikin). The physicist and theologist talks about the concept of light in Biblical tradition and the way it gave birth to relativity theory and quantum mechanics, which led to a radical worldview overhaul in the 21st century. The evolution […]
“Life Amidst The Pandemic” is the topic for season 2 of FM Module. Episode 14, which opens the new season, is focused on “touch” in the sense we know from the contemporary media reality.
Episode 13 of FM Module is a poetic tribute to the black hole. The “unlucky” number 13 is not the focus here: instead of darkness, chaos and destruction, the episode mostly dives into the matter of entity transformation. The black hole is terrifying yet alluring. Bending space and time, it can bring one’s dreams true: […]
«The winds themselves are invisible, but what they do is manifest to us, and we sense their approach somewhere.»(Socrates, quoted after Hannah Arendt, Denken ohne Gelander) Episode 11 of FM Module submerges you into the Ocean and the planetary dialectics hidden in its depths. Monolithic yet inherently shifting, the Ocean gives birth to all the […]
In episode 10 of FM Module, we continue exploring the Interface. This time, we ponder on how it’s going to evolve after (and independently from) human beings. The media interface reaches its peak in virtual reality — the point where the line between human and The Other [human / machine] becomes as blurred as ever. […]
Episode 9 of FM Module is on air. This double feature is dedicated to the Interface — the great and fear-inducing, the close and unreachable. Interfaces are what unites and disjoints the world which used to be whole but has long been viewed as a paradigm of binary oppositions. Today, the language of communication between […]
The exhibition of a dream / L’exposition d’un reve revolves within the complex beauty of dreams, and wonders how to generate a dream – to create a mental images within the mind of the spectator. To quote Yoko Ono, «A dream you dream alone may be a dream, but a dream two people dream together is […]
Episode 7 of FM Module is dedicated to time — the wildest, most fleeting part of our existence. We can count time like money, yet we do not always have full control over it. German philosopher Max Horkheimer’s quote touches upon the link between the two main human resources: «…time is not money, but money is […]
