Metal / Art (abstract)
« on: August 14, 2012, 12:04:59 PM »
Does art communicate a humanly conceived message, which would imply that the artist contains whatever the work of art expresses, or does it 'merely' facilitate (for instance) a sense of the abstract whole of which one is part, like a calibration of the self with the Ideal of being?
I used to believe that art is a means of communication, however, the most profound art seems to communicate something that is way beyond artist or artwork. This way, the work of art would be like a clearing in a clouded sky allowing lightbeams trough; a piece of infrastructure, a channel, rather than a humanly conceived 'message' being passed on to the beholder.

And as an aside: if both artist and artwork are merely media, is art still to be considered a feat of human interaction? Is the object of art a cultural attainment? Is art a cultural endeavour proper?

Metal / Re: Extreme metal: An evolution?

Extreme metal possesses a capability of expressing more profound feeling and thought; ideally it trancends not only the mundane, individual trifles rock obsesses about, but human vanity in general as well.
Heavy metal rarely abandons the human point of view, whereas some black metal attempts to value existence from the standpoint of eternity.

Hermann Huppen made some very good comics in the European tradition. Movie-style story telling with an a-moral or misantropic outlook.
The series Jeremiah and Towers of Bois-Maury are highly recommended. Both have only a couple albums available in English.

Schubert songs
Schumann songs
Debussy songs, piano works
Chopin, obviously.

"To Walk Infernal Fields" by Darkthrone is probably the closest thing I've heard to a Metal love song, but either way I'm not really looking for Metal, thats why this is in chasm and not Metal.

Quote from: Natassja in Eternal Sleep
Natassja, my beloved satanic witch,
The power in your eyes and yourself.
Worked for the noble in man.

Blessed is he who finds beauty in anything- but it looks like you're just a hopelessly undiscerning dummy in your 'current state':

Quote from: Zyklon B
'I can not see much difference between what is considered bad and good metal.'
"good" [...], I mean, [...] cute, or beautiful in a way, etc...'
'I enjoy everything'

Ergo: 'everything is good'.

Of course a close-knit minority group, especially one that regards itself elevated above all other lifeforms, may have an interest in chaos on the outside.
Still it looks like prolific Jews in politics/arts/entertainment are simply individuals making their traditions work for them in a non-religious way.
One of these traditions is studying like mad from age 0, allowing a lot of Jewish proles to get educated, occupy powerful positions in western society and fuck shit up recklessly; in the end it's not their culture that's at stake.
