Kosmik Machine is a blog by Amsterdam based astrologer/musician/dj Robbert Steer. After spending his teenage years on chess and his twenties on vinyl, Robbert got an MA in Religious Studies in his thirties. Spending his time between Amsterdam and Berlin, Ableton and Astrology, Kosmik Machine is also an outlet to let new ideas into the field and tune into the age of electronica.
The insane jubilee of the kosmik challenge is ahead. The post-identity century needs a new ritual outcome to create an altered dis-course, an enunciation of the collective experience unlike the ones we got used to. Post digital yet with all the senses involved, hand by hand, heart by heart, a music that pulls the lost strings together again. The kosmik dawn is affirmative, it requires yes as an answer and is not much interested in any other outcomes. In nature the ritual has always been musical. Even when the music was reduced to pure theory or a one to one excursion, the harmonics and melodies were the basic forces of the exchange. To realize this picture of sound as a circle of becoming is the task to be faced. Thats why the psychologist can not be a leader of tomorrow’s fate, she carries the burden as the vanishing make up/over of the christian heritage. Something will save the day. A so called healing of one to one, because the One is no longer there. Just someone to talk to, a sensitized empathic ear in the sea of isolated individuals. The preacher fallen off the shelf, like an echo of an empty church, yes the love needs a release somewhere, if the church would have been full the preachers wouldn’t have to revert to psychology as the dance would do. She has been vital as an intermediate of that involuted 20th century. Crossing the river from Christianity to technology requires some Chironic bogeyman at work.
