No truth, no faith, no hope. Existence itself has no meaning, it is inherently absurd and purposeless, an irresolvable emptiness. Absurd is this paradoxical situation, this fundamental disharmony between the impulse to place ultimate questions and the impossibility of achieving any adequate answer. Searching for one truth and expecting enlightenment is a mental imprisonment, a flirt with suicide, an endless cycle of death.
Reject the delusions, create in vain and live to the point of tears.
Bear the absurd. Abandon all hope.
Enter Liber Null.

The clip follows a single dancer as she performs a routine around an empty space, which looks like a disused warehouse and is dotted with concrete columns.
"The song is about loss and change, so the idea that the woman changes from flesh and blood to a 3D-printed lattice reflects this change, and subsequent loss of her old self," Dom&Nic said.
lot of time was spent on the visual effects, created by The Mill, which involved merging the actions of the dancer with a 3D digital model.
Australian firm Elenberg Fraser has won planning approval for a 226-metre-high Melbourne skyscraper that will feature a curvaceous form taken from a music video by Beyoncé. The new Premiere Tower at 134 Spencer Street will boast a series of curves and bulges designed to make it as structurally efficient as possible, but that also reference one of Beyoncé's music videos.
The shape is an homage to the undulating fabric-wrapped bodies of dancers in the singer's music video for Ghost – a song from her self-titled 2013 album, which was originally published as one half of track called Haunted but released as a stand-alone music video.
"For those more on the art than science side, we will reveal that the form does pay homage to something more aesthetic – we're going to trust you've seen the music video for Beyoncé's Ghost," said the Melbourne-based studio.
The 68-storey structure, which was approved by planning officials in May, will be located at the west end of the city's central business district. It will contain 660 apartments, as well as a 160-room hotel.Parametric modelling – a type of computer-aided design that allows complex shapes to be created in response to data constraints – was used to develop the unique form, which will swell in and out at various points around the facade.
According to Elenberg Fraser, the shape of the Premiere Tower also responds to climate, wind and the particular limitations of the site.
"This project is the culmination of our significant research," said the firm. "The complex form – a vertical cantilever – is actually the most effective way to redistribute the building's mass, giving the best results in terms of structural dispersion, frequency oscillation and wind requirements."
It follows in the footsteps of MAD's hourglass-shaped skyscrapers in Mississauga, Canada, which were dubbed the "Marilyn Monroe towers" by local residents.
The project is backed by Fragrance Group, the property development arm of Singapore real estate tycoon Koh Wee Meng. Public house the Savoy Tavern, which reopened in 2014 after laying derelict for nearly 20 years, will now be demolished to make way for the tower.
The aim is to eventually replan the entire precinct, whilst also respecting its heritage buildings. "The whole precinct is designed with a more long-term view to urban design, creating a self-sustaining development," added the architects.
No completion date has yet been released.

Duality describes humanity's usual condition. All phenomena must be paired as the senses are equipped to perceive differences or oppositions. Happiness exists only because of misery, pain because of comfort, good because of evil, love because of hate, black because of white, slavery because of freedom, birth because of death and existence because of non-existence.
Liber Null actions are mind-body experiences. Happenings that touch the brain and then move to the body and let the body move. Monolith's experience happens in an introspective optic by proposing contemporary tales based on consistent topics. The platform aims to recall those ancient values that got lost in the present.
The anniversary and double edition of June is the unification of Liber Null with Monolith Records under one force. The glue between the two entities is the compulsive research of truth, a complex happening on different levels. Perception -intended as the cooperation of the senses and shaped by learning, memory, expectations and attention- is the tool to measure and judge reality. We celebrate the junction of two seeking the one. We negate any form of contamination to the real pure intentions of those who believe in a deep personal development, to those who are growing passions and feeding themselves of the beauty contained in their creation.
12-13th June, at Griessmuehle Berlin, start at 22:00.

Soundpainting is the live composing sign language created in 1974 by New York composer Walter Thompson for musicians, dancers, actors, poets and visual artists. Soundpainting demands that artists step away from what is familiar and predictable and commit to each expressive act without knowing where it will lead. The soundpainter asks each member of the Orchestra to perform as she or he is normally accustomed but goes further, stretching the genre boundaries of their "instrument", for example, musicians may be called upon to laugh, actors to sing, and dancers to speak.
You can have a better idea if you have the chance of attending a soundpainting live performance.

Calling all ravers! Europe's first techno museum is opening in Frankfurt, meaning that soon you'll be able to combine clubbing with a cultural day out. The Museum of Modern Electronic Music (MOMEM) is set up by industrial DJ Andreas Tomalla (aka TALLA 2XLC), whose credibility cannot be doubted – he actually invented the word "techno". Tomalla hopes that the museum will open its doors in 2017.
Deutsche Welle reports that the museum will focus on the sensory experience that clubbing offers and provide insight on the impact that electronic music has had on 20th and 21st century culture. There will be workshops for any budding DJs and the museum will also hold live events, which makes this place sound pretty much like the most educational club ever.
The city of Frankfurt has leased the space to the founders of MOMEM for free, affirming how Germans regard electronic music as an important part of their cultural identity. MOMEM would be the second ever techno museum in the world (there's EXHIBIT 3000 in Detroit) and the first in Europe.
As a DJ, producer and club owner, Tomalia has helped to push the art form forward since the 1980s. In 1984, he opened Technoclub, the first nightclub in Frankfurt that focussed only on electronic music.
Now he's opened the world's first museum to focus solely on the genre, cementing himself as somebody who is central to preserving and pushing forward electronic music. A lot of people struggle to maintain interest in museums, so I suppose "make it a bit more like a club" isn't a bad tactic to get people through the doors.
