so is vaporwave considered strictly musical by the content creators, as opposed to the more audiovisual aspect that most people seem to view it as?
So, what was the inspiration for your transition from vaportrap to various more ambient/avant-garde works?
Also windows is my most popular alias, I usually like to reserve aliases for certain styles (to a degree) but since more people listen to my windows output it's more exciting for me to keep all of my listeners on their toes of what they can expect from me musically.
How do you usually find yourself listening to music? Do you have a routine for music listening or anything you like to do while listening?
Today is Women's Equality Day! Who do you think is the greatest woman in history?
Is there a story behind your profile picture? What is it?
how present is the whole "Anti consumerism" thing in vaporwave right now. and how present was it in the first place. and do you know anyone who makes music specifically with that idea or a similair one??
Now my own music is a different story. Originally, there wasn't any inherent (or coherent for that matter) thematic decisions when it came to my music as windows. I've always hinted at things like corporate identity, the recontextualization of commercial music (or as Marcel put it: the new Utopia of commercial revisions), and the "big data" information on the internet as well as it's linguistic structures. But it was never solidified as something like Now That's What I Call (which is a direct statement against copyright and the fragility of pop music). That doesn't mean Marcel's or your interpretation is invalid, I never thought what the creator said on a subject is final (Barthes' Death of the Author, anyone?). I usually never form my music around the philosophical/political implications of it, it mostly starts out with the music itself and then has meaning applied to it. MUSIC FOR AIRPORTS was just a collection of 2 recordings that I spanned into 3 tracks, but when I made the project I did want to comment on some things. Like the globalized commodification of transportation, the intrinsic busyness of airports (and what that's like aurally), the almost simulacrian experience that's advertised by airlines, as well as flipping Eno's record on its' head, sonically and aesthetically. My overarching point here, is that your own interpretation of art is more important the original intention of the author when it comes to discussing it. It's always valid.
If you could eliminate any word from the dictionary, meaning no one can ever use it again, what word would you choose?
What are your opinions on the people who is in the vaporwave community but doesn't actually make vaporwave?
If you could live on another planet, which would you choose?

death's dynamic shroud.wmv. Amazing track on constant repeat. Is that is a asteroids, space invaders sample, but highly edited and slushed around? great idea!! it works very well! gives it that etheral cosmic vibe
When it comes to Vaporwave. certain tracks are slowed down or extreme repetitive loop sample.(example NTWICM) which can span sometimes over 20 mins. Yourself included. My question: Is it a making a statement on the music industry or commicerism in general, or is just you artist screwing having fun
When are you going to produce dial-up vaporwave?
I use a bit of dial up sounds on my インターネット reissue (getting released on Null Religion Records soon).
I think NETWORK NEIGHBORHOOD beat me to it though.
