Santiago Dreaming

In correspondence today with Harry Beer, son of an old teacher of mine called Stafford Beer, I was directed to an old Guardian article about "Cybersyn", a project Stafford was working on back in the 1970s with Salvador Allende of Chile, and which was never finished due to Pinochet's coup.

It was an amazing project, a kind of "socialist internet, decades ahead of its time". Stafford was a remarkable man, and a very influential thinker.

I've written a new dance track on the subject of Stafford, entitled "It's the Beer Talking". It's the third and final track on the new e.p. "The New Ageless" (download link on the right). Enjoy!
