madam data presents The Floating World, a podcast of experimental sound and storytelling. Music in the sense of vacuum cleaners and power lines, a pulsating mechanical unconsciousness. It is sound to listen to while driving, walking through the city or taking the subway, while falling asleep at 3am to construction outside, when you need to be more than your body.

    Episode 5: Ghosts of Mars (feat. M Téllez)

    Episode 5: Ghosts of Mars (feat. M Téllez)

    On Ep. 5, some folks leave for Mars under dubious circumstances - projecting the insidious logic of colonialism onto our (very hypothetical) spaceward expansion, M Téllez of Metropolarity weaves a tale of subjugation, coercion, and little resistances - amid neighbourhood walks, cyborg rhythms, and a strange goodbye from an old caretaker.

    You can find out about M Téllez at their website, www.cyborgmemoirs.com

Transformative Listening

I listen to the Floating World when I need 30 minutes to decompress phasing in and out of the inner dimensions of reality whether to fully recalibrate, or to scramble my mental stimuli into smithereens. Five⭐️
