To celebrate the release of The Lifted Brow: Digital’s Space Issue (Volume 11, Issue 1), we asked writer, FBi radio host, and general man about town Luke Telford to make us a Space-themed mixtape.
Here’s what Luke had to say about it:
Space is a human concept. We use it to position ourselves within systems that are completely beyond our comprehension or control.
Some people peer into space and think they see the universe, the purpose of humanity, our precariousness, our preciousness. But really, that endless void shows us nothing but our own insignificance and futility staring back at us. Like Narcissus gazing into emptiness.
No wonder that space should inspire such intense and heady music.
This is a collection of pieces that engage with the idea of space in one way or another. Some of them are deadly serious. Some are delirious and ridiculous. All of them beautiful failures.
