asystems is a collaborative platform for the presentation and distribution of online and offline works. Founded and curated by Dow One and sohsie LAN, asystems is interested in examining the music, art and commentary of current cultural facets. To do this, there are physical and comprehensive works released as primary releases as well as a number of variations on secondary releases such as the print series Issues, youtube white label series MFYT and the extensive collaboration of Gallery- a digital space allowing for asystems artists to post original works on a regular basis.

NEW RELEASES

Primary is the extensive multi-medium release effort of asystems. The multi-medium function serves to design a structural whole between music/audio, text, image, video, web, material, program and analysis. This whole allows for a relational model in which all Primary's can be subjected to interconnected communication. Through this a composition is created compounded of several parts and members. This is the primary objective of asystems.

PRIMARY

 

Mastered For YouTube (MFYT) is the asystems digital white label series.  Each MFYT contains an A side and B side in the tradition of white label releases.  Both tracks are uploaded to YouTube with standardized A side/B side covers.  By thru-putting the manufacturing of a commodity the aim is to participate in the acceleration of contemporary media.  The medium of YouTube was chosen for their brand of neutral mass appeal; this inspires a freedom from the exactitude of music industry.  Though discreet in approach the music of MFYT is intended for enigmas of the masses - Radio and Club.  Through these constraints asystems provokes artists to interface with new popular music. All MFYTs are released on the first friday of every month and are free to download. MFYT welcomes submissions at asystems@asystems.co.

MFYT

Issues is the asystems publishing initiative. The Issues publishing formats include pamphlets, books, tracts and digital only essays and articles. Works published through Issues observe and construct positions on particular cultural structures by means of critiquing the value degrees of history, ideology, commodity, social life and trends. Asystems believes the relationship between these will progress or expose dissonances in creative society. Issues are all available to view and download for free. Issues welcomes submissions at asystems@asystems.co.

ISSUES

 

"ACADEMY HYPERPRODUCT AA (FIREWALL1.0)"

 

NJ

 

Essay

 

as issue 002

 

“NJ designs an academic product.  The result is equal parts cultural-critique,

phenomenological description, political implicator, or dialogue opener, BS/total gold.

More importantly, it analyzes cultural practices taken for granted within certain political contexts,

compares OPEN//CLOSED systems, and posits the potential aesthetic benefits of surveillance.”

"Keep Dreaming"

 

Nick James

 

Pamphlet

 

as issue 001

 

“Keep Dreaming” is a dialogue of back-and-forth poetics,

happening in real-time, between Nick James and “TFD.”

The spontaneous micro-verses chronicle vague, abstracted “sweet-nothings”

alongside images of “divine love.”

A Deconstruction of An Empty Body"

an A&A production

 

Pamphlet

 

as issue 000

 

sohsie LAN and Dow One present two communicating pieces.

The writings muse on specific forms of computation:

a) sohsie articulates pain between the IRL/AFK duality alongside technological fetishes and

b) Dow One systematizes mass organisms’ shakes, resonances and drills by deconstructing the body (in 1800-MANKIND).
