„Dirty Pictures“ is the project of Russian Producer Lёps Dubasov. He studied music since the early 90s. Two main elements characterize his music until today: Experiment and imagery. The Album „Segregation“ is an extraordinary example for the new concept of Mille Plateaux, which can be described as „Ultrablack of Music“. In the gravity of Ultrablackness you can hear the immeasurableness of the real. For Lёps Dubasov nature and it hyper-objekts are a supplement for the real.

In his album strange nonhuman sonic fluxes touch the mimicry of Chaos, they tell in an audible way about forces, that are not audible. Segregation makes the music of the earth and nature audible, which by its nature is raw, strange, intense. This confronts us with the experimentation with a nameless in-between, in which new temporalities can emerge. whose winding paths and outcomes can neither be predicted nor guaranteed. Music is no longer to be organized sound, but the diagrammatic constitution of a counterfactual space-time, which in addition enables a transformation of hearing within the possibilities offered by such a sound-music.

Lёps Dubasovs music pays attention to time, to slowness, and to an always changing continuity at play in the transformation of sounds. This transformation is on the one hand organic and on the other hand non-human. Ecology is here the opposite of hierarchy: a web of nature and imaginable sounds, a web in which the interactions between the different objects are quasi infinite. Lёps Dubasov considers our terrestriality not as a surface, but as a field of flows and folds. a multiplicity of contrasting sounds and materials.

Ecological non-music can register as internalized orientation with in the world and act as an externalized sound explicitly attuned to the potent affective character of the Real, as the Outside, darkness etc. Ecological non-music offers non-musical resources and opportunities to help facilitate more coherent responses to the inhuman, posthuman and transhuman possibilities.

Anonymous, dark, black, hidden, concealed, encrypted, opaque, undercover, incomprehensible: Ultrablack of Music dares the exodus and listens to those forces and sounds that tell of the unheard in music. Sound is the vibration, resonance and diffraction of waves in the black cosmos. ... more
