Futurebeat: Vorschtsprung dürch Techno

Dave Rimmer, Wire, The, Spring 1994

"The only possible challenge to repetitive power takes the route of a breach in social repetition and the control of noisemaking. In more day-to-day political terms, it takes the route of the permanent affirmation of the right to be different, and obstinate refusal of the stockpiling of use-time and exchange-time; it is the conquest of the right to make noise, in other words, to create one's own code and work without advertising the goal in advance; it is the conquest of the right to make the free and revocable choice to interlink with another's code - that is, the right to compose one's life."
— Jacques Attali, Noise
