For the Anthropocene

You know.

The five warmest years have all occurred since 2015 with 9 of the 10 warmest years occurring since 2005.

The last time CO2 concentrations were this high was 2.5-5 million years ago when global temperatures were 2-3°C higher and sea level was at least 25 meters higher.

The icecaps and glaciers are melting.

Megafires engulf large expanses claiming many lives human and nonhuman.

Floods are deadlier and more frequent.

Arid areas are getting drier.

70 billion land animals and over a trillion sea animals are killed every year for food.

Voters are manipulated by powerful financial interests into supporting policy that accelerates CO2 pollution instead of eliminating it.

Corporate tyranny makes ever-increasing gains against democratic power.

Post-truth confusion divides and delays action.

There are less than 10 years left to radically alter the fossil-fuel based economy otherwise we promise suffering and violence to an ever-increasing human population for the next 10,000 years.

As things get ever more grim, for the times we are not fighting in whatever small or large ways we are able, as the weight of the world bears down, we shall not shrug.

And we will still need music.

At Work responds with Sound Systems.

Programmed and mixed by At Work.

Sound Systems

As we systematically slide into the existential emergency of cataclysmic climate patterns, a sixth mass-extinction event, certain destruction is ensured to the natural systems upon which all species (including humans) have adapted over many millennia.

At Work returns with a beat-driven, nine-minute glimpse of surrounding cultural, structural, environmental wastes in this grim moment of the Anthropocene.

'Sound Systems' is a preview of things to come on the forthcoming EP of the same name and marks the first At Work sounds since 2016's A Thousand Blended Notes.

The track "Sound Systems" is from the new At Work EP, Sound Systems (PATH22) available from Batona Music. Released January 16, 2020.

101 Long Shits by Evan Wilder

November 11, 2019

In 2013, Evan Wilder set out to make long, slow videos of his surrounding Pine Barrens.

Autumn streams flow with fallen leaves. Waterbugs swarm. Bats swoop. Fish leap. A squirrel huddles through a storm. A turkey protects her young. A fawn naps. Brooks brim. Pines glow in summer's afternoon sun. Turning leaves sway in Autumn's twilit breeze. Oak shadows slowly slide on the surface of new fallen snow. Spring rains expand stems and leaves. At the pace of the turning earth, celestial objects appear to slide across the frame. Dawn emerges, days go dark, the moon rises, Orion continues westward.

And now in 2019, the series ends at a total of 101 videos.

If one were to watch them all, it would take almost 2 and a half days.

Perhaps they will survive further into the future as digital record than the environment they were recorded in.
