about

‘Exzschplojnk’ is a Latin word used to translate the Cyrillic expression ‘оптической’, which first appeared in a Uzbek folklore dating back to year 500 BC. The term supposedly means “chasms of the soul” or “the wounds of the soul”. The ancient folklore deals with the hardships of a young shepherd, Alisher (meaning; “Great lion”), travelling all alone over the Russian tundras. At dawn one cold night, Alisher is stopped dead in his tracks when a drove of white oxen appears before him. The oxen summon a silver colored tube to appear right over Alisher’s head, through which Alisher hears the cries from another man;

When can I disentangle
from this meta-nonsense
and sail into adulthood like
a sailor filled with bravery?
Just like you are filled
with anxiety;
with the course set straight
onto the reef, then
reaching the bottom of the sea
without even to have lived
one single second of your entire life;
While the hollow sounds of techno
reverberates monotonically
through the Bosphorus strait.
Nts-nts-nts.
Bubbling.

The experience, strangely enough, comforted Alisher, who there and then realized that indeed all men of this earth suffer. What he could not comprehend, however, was the meaning of the word “techno”. It was indeed a message from the future. A sign of better things to come, he thought. And he went on with his life and died at the age of 85 inside his little cottage in the woods. Never did Alisher learn, that the man he had heard through the tube summoned by the white oxen, was Phlu, reaching out to him from the future. Artwork by Phlu himself.

No sound is too small. We want to be an arena for people to showcase their music, however strange their music may sound. We're also psyched about preserving our time's "folk music" - music made by "regular people". Music made for the pure pleasure of making music.
