The Angel of History

An autobiography in 41 songs. Talk around Volta often turns to music and theory. After trying my best to explain Walter Benjamin's Theses on the Philosophy of History to Aly, I set up an experiment in which I would try to assemble a constellation of music that would trace from 1970 to the present, one song from each year in order. Each song would have to be something that I first listened to in the year it was released. Not the best songs, or the most popular (obviously), but rather songs that had some sort of third meaning that fixed it, historically, in my own understanding of myself at the time. Not sure what this says, yet, but that's somewhat the point...

One big pile of debris.
