From the artist's website:


Potential auditors are encouraged to read the following notes on christöphilax as formative of the function of the I:

1. dwyle flonker
christöphilax applauds the subversive value of ritualised play in the reproduction of traditional, rustic communities, especially when such organic, indigenous pastimes celebrate the disruptive lower regions of the body and by extension of the body-social. This phenomenon has been anatomised by noted fellow cultural worker Mikhail M. Bakhtin.

2. the ears of drachen theaker
christöphilax meditates on aesthetics and their demands. drachen theaker was born with two sets of ears. He died of a brain tumour.

3. death by budgerigar
In this feathered revenge fantasy, christöphilax notes that the ubiquity of the caged budgerigar in the parlors and sitting rooms of petit-bourgeois Europe is another by-product of Empire. Who's a pretty boy, then?

4. skye boat song
A rogue tear coursing down her cheek, christöphilax salutes those who fell at Bannockburn in this traditional song, recorded in solidarity with movements towards Scottish independence. Scotland is, as noted fellow cultural worker Alan Sinfield has observed, "One of the first and the last colonies of England."

5. ear, nose and throat
Fellow cultural worker Salman Rushdie says that the nose is where the inside meets the outside. christöphilax had her adenoids out and her septum straightened on the British National Health Service. christöphilax is still considering the ideological and material implications of this event.

6. chimps' corner
Every home has one. Dust-coated boiled sweets, coins of small denomination, dried orange peel, clots of hair decomposing, banana skins. christöphilax dedicates this track to Alfred the Gorilla and to members of the Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians (UCATT) who constructed his environment at the Bristol Zoo.

7. cornelius cardew crosses the road
christöphilax's sensitive homage to the last moments of a significant fellow cultural worker.

8. suburban gamelan
Another installment in christöphilax's continued interrogation of the fetishisation of the "primitive" in late-capitialist society.

9. the year of the pettifogger
In light of the imminent revolution, christöphilax anticipates, with considerable pleasure, the obsolescence of the following whose bald-faced lying and cheerful incompetence has marred her past 12 months: handymen, dentists, doctors, cheese sellers, removal companies, attorneys, carpet vendors, hypocritical and poorly managed non-profit organisations, Che Bella pizzeria, Time Warner Cable, Verizon, heating engineers, general contractors, plumbers, UPS, Federal Express, Home Depot and Suba the Pharmacist.

10. louder lads, the lord can't hear you
christöphilax remembers Althusser, a fellow cultural worker. He strangled his wife in a moment of madness but he could think the hind legs off a donkey.

11. sialkot (for Mr. Khalid M. B.)
christöphilax meditates on a canny appropriation by the artisans of the Punjab. Notwithstanding their ingenuity and craftsmanship, they are compelled to sell their fine handiwork back to the "first world" for a 50th of the price it would fetch if their business were based in New York, London or Paris.

12. psora3
A further dermatological observation. See itch, especially "psora1" and "psora2."

13. sinisa mihajlovic
christöphilax's provisional observations on the implication of popular culture forms in the mythology of "historical" ethnic divisions.

14. beagle3
To christöphilax, space exploration embodies the ongoing tension between the military industrial complex with its technological obfuscation of everyday life and the essential human hunger for a knowledge of others and otherness.

The mirror stage French: stade du miroir is a concept in the psychoanalytic theory of Jacques Lacan. The mirror stage is based on the belief that infants recognize themselves in a mirror literal or other symbolic contraption which induces apperception the turning of oneself into an object that can be viewed by the child from outside themselves from the age of about six months. The child notices his movements in the mirror, and in so doing, realizes that he is seeing a reflection of himself. As a result, he forms his first impressions of himself, both in terms of his appearance and his physically mastery over the world around him. Lacan calls this stage of child development the Mirror Stage 1285. Lacan believes that this stage is a part of a machine-like process of our psychological growth that reinforces his belief in paranoiac knowledge 1286, which is to say that he believes the formation of self that we experience while looking in a mirror is part of our d.

I loved the subtle sounds and drone-like harmonies of 'whatever happened to Timothy Davey'. Rhys Chatham. I have to say how much I enjoy christöphilax's recordings - a chance to cleanse the ears to begin the day and work through some immersive soundscapes. Highly intense and fulsome indeed. I especially liked cuts 10 and 13 on 'christöphilax as formative of the function of the I. The subtly changing textures take you on a clean journey. Simeon Coxe Silver Apples. Behold the raw power of christöphilax. Andrew Magilow Splendid Magazine. The mastery of his body, the achievement of a unified unfragmented bodily experience. Why is the subject alienated by the image 1949, Écrits: The Mirror Stage as Formative of the I as Revealed in Psychoanalytic Experience. The subject identifies with an image that is exterior to it, meaning that the I is constituted literally outside of itself. In addition, this image is frozen, lending permanence and stability to the ego and its object, yet this is a mirage that hides the truth of constant becoming.

Dry writing and too complicated structure for no reason at all really. Jul 15, 2018 Tyler rated it really liked it. Shelves: psychoanalysis. The lymphatic system, or lymphoid system, is an organ system in vertebrates that is part of the circulatory system and the immune system. It is made up of a large network of lymphatic vessels, lymphatic or lymphoid organs, and lymphoid tissues. The vessels carry a clear fluid called lymph the Latin word lympha refers to the deity of fresh water, Lympha towards the heart. The next decade was pivotal in Lacans trajectory, the time when he fully came into his own as a leading analytic thinker of great originality and immense import. A veritable explosion of Lacanian material was unleashed during this. At the end of the 1940s and beginning of the 1950s, Lacan became initiated into and conversant with the structuralism of Ferdinand de Saussure and his inheritors such as Claude Lévi-Strauss and Roman Jakobson. Lévi-Strausss 1949 book The Elementary Structures of Kinship helped launch the French structuralist movement that flourished during the 1950s and 1960s, an orientation that challenged the theoretical primacy of existentialism in France. As an example of the latter problem, consider the proportion of black incarcerated Americans. This proportion is often used to characterize the criminal justice system as anti-black. Any apparent unity is surely a function of the fact that dissent could almost certainly lead to expulsion or cancellation for those of us in a precarious position, which is no small number. Given the direction our history department appears to be taking far from any commitment to truth, we can regard ourselves as a formative training institution for this brand of snake-oil salespeople
