3. Steve Goodman - Hyper-C : Breaking the Net

33.33rpm: 2112bpm - 1056 - 528 - 264 - 132 - 66 - 33 - 16.5 - 8.25 - 4.125 - 2.0625

45rpm: 2880bpm - 1440 - 720 - 360 - 180 - 90 - 45 - 22.5 - 11.25 - 5.56 - 2.528

1. The above is an excerpt from Sector 7.1 of the Hyper-C tone-scientist manual entitled Hydro-demonic polyrhythm: operating system for the redesign of sonic reality, on kode9 sonic insurgency- Polyrhythmic scaling, Octave stretching, Breakbeat nesting as short-circuits to turbulence. Elsewhere in the text, afroatlantian rhythmic futurism's involutionary trajectory from the full beat of 4/4 funeral marches through the beat of 2/4 towards the note of swing,on past the bebop 1/8 note into a convergence with the T1000 liquid metal hyperrhythm entity which, arriving from the future, surfaced recently in the early to mid 1990s. This vast vortical assemblage diagrammed by such period doubling suggests that the affective potential of the Black Atlantic consists of the multi-scalar rhythmic composition of turbulence- the art of war in the art of noise. Like the cybergoths, Hyper-C seem addicted to the flatline bliss of micro-pause abuse- different agent, same line. In a later section of Hydro-demonic polyrhythm we learn further that this redesign of sonic reality generates genetic destratification for subaquatic martial arts, for insurgency on the distributed pod network which the AOE was installing, constituting a carceral archipelago [entitled C--Net,Inc.] under the Black Atlantic.

Each pod was allegedly modelled on C20's design wizard Buckminster Fuller's undersea island, and housed gleaming sonar tracking machines, tracing out the sonic environment on digital cartographies of fractal complexity.

2. Riding the surge current of the Syzygy hydro-cycle opens Hyper-C break asymmetrics to smooth transitions across the rhythmic frequency continuum, camouflaging their sonic output with the bpm metric, Hyper-C cluster their productions around the aganomic speed of 180bpm [kode9 plateau of continuous variation) and 132bpm (micro-break demonic two-step)

3. For the distributed aquaassassins of the Hyper-C tide, Y2K constituted nothing less than a scratch on the vinyl of history. With the C-level rising all the time, the elusive cult phenomena were characterised by what Kodwo Eshun has referred to as 'liquidarity', a kind kind of hydrotronic tao of turbulence, geling distributed agents into a collective visco-elastic polyrhythm.

4. Hyper-C = as MC Blowfish of Digital Underground proclaims (((with thanks to Parliament's Psychoaquadoodoo))) composed of turtablist tone scientists and connoisseurs of the occult numeric practices of break asymmetrics. 5. For the Dogons of West Africa the 8 ancestors are called Nommo. The scapegoated ancestor, the Fish Nommo, Anagonno, was sacrificed to counteract the disorder of the universe, of which continual land reclamation operations constitute only a terrestrial instance(((((((((((((((Could language really be the earth screaming?))))))) The bifurcation of Po, the cosmic egg, triggers the onset of turbulence, a cosmic whirlwind. Unlike astro-physicist Steven Hawking who disregards significant matter prior to the Big Bang, the Dogons posit the abyssal waters.(see Finch III 1998)

6. Several Hyper-C designers had watched with fascination as the infinite regress of negations constituted by the weight of Hegelian dialectic was passed downstream by the theoretical terrorists, the Young Black Hegelians. The Quantum Blacks were on a collision course from the start according to Greg Tate. The Young Black Hegelians despite their energetic conceptual insurgency were weighed down by the burden of contradiction and conflict with which their heritage had burdened them. The Quantum Blacks therefore were forced into locating themselves "by bearing the sign of negation to a reductio ad absurdum, a theoretical black hole. Not a collapse in the fabric of space-time, dimension or gravity, but to a fold in the curtain of race memory."(Tate: 65)

8. Always, Hyper-C had sneered from afar at an overexposed spectacular martial mode of historical monumentalism instead installing an amphibious geographical nonumentalism and deploying the anti-memory deep time of the spinal fluid ocean.

1. Contrast the martial trajectory of the Quantum Blacks with the escape velocity of the Dr. Drexel inspired Drexiyans and you can understand the dismay of deep-cover Hyper-C > with escalations to violence of the Quantum Black war against the State (white body politic) which Greg Tate reports.

4. By pure coincidence, Dr. Camelot Drexel's research, Tate tells us, "was based on the theory that black peoples consciousness and social condition could be transformed through genetic mutation, rather than religious or ideological conversion. He wanted to transform a select group of black folks into amphibious creatures who would assist him in leading an exodus of black people to the Sirius B system."(Tate: 59)

5. In 1998, mobile aqua-agent Drexiya has been noted "currently missing in action" although recent signal suggests sightings in the "eastside sewer system 7 mile and Van dyke area- eastside Detroit Sector." Drexiya, a "wavejumper" from the Special forces operates on "aquatic assault" and "beach head preparations" through the "underwater deployment of Electronic Funk Bombs."
