Part1 – Quick note – How Do You Make Music a Body without Organs? Gilles Deleuze and Experimental Electronica by Christoph Cox

  • BwO = a body’s virtual field
  • events + becoming = being
  • experience + sign&symbols = emotion = symboled affect

So long as we think of the body as a given functional form, says Deleuze alluding to Spinoza, we will not know what a body can do, what it is capable of.

德勒兹说(这里他暗示着斯宾诺莎曾经说过的),只要我们把身体当作一个既定的功能性形式,我们就不可能知道身体会作什么、能够作什么。

To become a BwO is to destratify the body, to reconnect it with the intensive, impersonal, transhuman matter that composes and surrounds it, to open it up to new connections and assemblages, to explore the innumerable things it can do beyond the restricted set of habitual actions that characterize the organ-ized body.

要变成一个BwO,就要化解身体的分层,将身体与构成和围绕它的那些密集的、非人的、超越人的物质重新联结起来,释放身体让它能够接受新的联结和装配,去发现那些身体能够作的无以计数的事情,超越被机体化的身体,因为被机体化的身体能够作的是受习惯限制的一套有限的动作。

When one does this, one transforms the body from a given entity with a specified functionality and 3 direction of activity to a construction site of exploration and connection. One no longer actualizes merely the specific set of affects that constitute, for example, Man as a normal, rational, heterosexual, productive human being but the entire (or, at least a larger) range of affects of which this body is capable.

当我们这样去作,我们就能够将身体从一个有着确定的功能和活动方向的既定整体转化到一个允许探索和联结的场所。我们将不再局限于仅仅实现某一套特定的被具体化的感动(比如那些将人构造成正常、理性、异性 、有生产力的人的情感),而是能够实现整个(或者至少是更大的)一套身体能够具备的未知感动。

雷·库兹韦尔 | 2045年人类将能永生
我们将变得越来越非生物化,表现形式是非生物的部分占据越来越大的比例,而生物部分变得越来越不那么重要。实际上,非生物的部分——也就是机器的部分——将变得非常强大,它将能够完全理解和模拟生物的部分。即使生物的部分消失了,它也能够继续工作下去,看不出任何区别,因为非生物的部分已经能够完全理解它了。
我们还将拥有非生物的身体。我们可以用纳米技术创造出身体,并在虚拟现实里拥有一个虚拟的身体,感觉起来就像真的一样。虚拟身体的细节和真实身体感觉无二,我们正需要这样的东西,因为我们的智能直接与身体相连。然而,这个身体却不一定非得是开启了各种“故障模式”的生物身体。
Transhumanism (abbreviated as H+ or h+) is an international intellectual movement that aims to transform the human condition by developing and making widely available sophisticated technologies to greatly enhance human intellect and physiology.
