Pre-fair program // DJ set: ákira pálais – Affects & dreams proof v1 (test print CMYK FINAL FINAL sept 20)

Participants: ákira pálais, Repeat Beat Poet

This is a test printing for the relaunch of our radio show "Affects & Dreams", formerly known as "Good Morning, I Love You".

Affects & Dreams is a project that began when we were still just larvae, operating under the name Crossdressing Diogenes (CDCY). Since then, Becoming has emerged as if a butterfly from a cocoon, leaving behind nothing but the residual pupal exuvia of what it once was. Despite Becoming being a publisher, it was this radio show that triggered the transformation, as the research that was conducted as a part of the project Affects & Dreams acted as a catalyst, speeding up some chemical processes that were already underway. Back when we were CDCY, we had a radio show called Good Morning, I Love You, and with that radio show we were invited to participate in Lumbung Radio as a part of Documenta Fifteen. We took the opportunity to rethink the radio show, and we developed a special 12-episode series of Good Morning, I Love You, that we specified as Affects & Dreams.

When Documenta Fifteen ended, so did CDCY, yet Lumbung Radio and Affects & Dreams had other plans, and both declared independence from their hosts, an expression of a will to continue, to find a way to surpass the primordial conditions. A year after, we are finally ready to assimilate our radio show back into Becoming, fully realized under its chosen name: Affects & Dreams. This process of collectively transmitting radio signals was highly transformative, so much so that we decided to write a book about it. For now, we wish to simply let the show unfold, but we intend to use the radio show communally, as a platform for sonic play between those who are entangled with Becoming. The radio show was always about the morning, dwelling primarily in minimalist electronic music (ambient, experimental, micro-house, minimal techno, post-rave), and it may well continue to operate along those lines, but everything can and must always drift off track when subjected to B/becoming.
