I’ve been thinking a LOT about different ways of representing the rhizome recently. D&G talk a lot about nomads living in smooth space and making felt (not knitting!) and I wondered what they’d be listening to during all of that. A quick search of Soundcloud (thanks Frances!) found 381 tracks, 47 people, 33 playlists, and 2 groups, so that’s my listening sorted out for a while then.
Googling “rhizomatic music” produced this short piece which is along the lines I was thinking – that improv and jazz are pretty rhizomatic, the Beatles are not. I listen to a lot of prog rock, and that’s a sort of halfway house between the two: there’s so many versions of Yes songs, for example. Hawkwind as well: another favourite of mine.
I was thinking about listening to music, but this article suggests a political dimension to it all which is too big for this post.
