FM Module #11. Ocean

«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 other dichotomies. United yet always different. Constructive and destructive. Extremely close to the flesh yet infinitely unreachable. The cradle of all life, it has also become the matrix of human civilization with all of its unresolvable discrepancies. Can we find the answers to hour centuries-long questions in the Ocean? Or can we only listen to its noise?

Featured in the episode: Andreas Ammer, Antonin Artaud, Meret Becker, Caspar Brotzmann, Jose de Espronceda, ValieExport, Alexander Hacke, Ulrike Haage, Volker Kamp, Saskia von Klitzing, David Link/Poetry Machine, Jennifer Minetti, Phil Minton, Ennio Morricone, Susan Stenger, Siegfried Zielinski, Ingrid Wiener.
