Swedish TV Documentary: New Order 'The Story Of Blue Monday'

"I år är det 30 år sen New Order släppte Blue Monday. I Hitlåtens historia berättas det om hur New Order reste sig ur en personlig tragedi och med Blue Monday tog ett slutgiltigt kliv från rock till dansmusik. Låten är en modern klassiker men också en stilstudie i bandbråk, klantigheter och hur man kan slå försäljningsrekord och samtidigt gå med förlust

Många låtar vill kallas klassiker och banbrytande. Få förtjänar det på riktigt. Men New Orders Blue Monday klarar alla testen. Den lät som ljudet av framtiden när den släpptes. Och 30 år senare har den fortfarande inte passerat bäst-före-datum.

Blue Monday är också ljudet av ett band som hittar sig själva. Tre år tidigare spelade medlemmarna i New Order i Joy Division. Men när sångaren Ian Curtis tog livet av sig 1980 fick Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook och Stephen Morris starta om. Det skulle till ett publikupplopp för att få dom att hitta sin egen identitet.

Med Blue Monday byggde inte bara New Order helt nya instrument. De byggde en bro mellan rocken och dansmusiken. Men om New Order gjorde alla rätt i studion, gick desto mer fel utanför. Blue Monday har ett av musikhistoriens mest mytomspunna omslag. Bland annat för att det sägs ha varit så dyrt att tillverka att skivan gick med förlust.

Och sen många år tillbaka är New Order ett splittrat band efter ett infekterat bråk. Men i Hitlåtens historia pratar samtliga medlemmar om Blue Monday, en av musikvärldens piggaste 30-åringar.

Måndag 16 december 22.15 i SVT2 och SVT Play"

The hipster as the postmodern dandy

"The hipster is, concurrently, developing into a form of youth subculture, though at present in a limited sense. Many of the tropes and defining characteristics of teenage tribalism are being draped in hipster attire, but with little of the angst-ridden and socio-economic preliminaries at the base of earlier subcultural trends and movements, such as skinheads, goths and punks (or some recipe based thereon). Without a solid, or at least only slightly shifting, base in materiality and social context, the attire of this set of genuinely disenfranchised youth is sign only; the woolly hat and the running shoe are talismans devoid of any intended meaning; the world seems flooded with signs without symbolism, with younger converts to the hipster 'style' aping their ape forebears. The sign has, in this context, lost its original referent and become 'hyperreal' (Baudrillard, 1994, p.1). The 'real' origin of the sign's meaning has been lost, or buried under meaningless affectation; the borrowing and commodification of a modern exoticism; that of various minority or 'retro' alternative fashions and attitudes. In reference to subcultural groups, Hebdige notes that 'humble' objects can be magically appropriated; 'stolen' by subordinate groups and made to carry 'secret' meanings' (1979, cited in Haralambos and Holborn, 2004, p.808). This explains the way punks could style safety pins into a new context, and teddy boys could subvert the traditional connotations of Edwardian formality – the coded meanings that charge such appropriated style-objects amounted to a kind of resistance to the ruling order, be that signified by the state or in the 'square' world of the mainstream. Each subculture is in some way 'spectacular', in that it creates a spectacle and intends to be noticed. The hipster is daily losing this status, as s/he becomes overloaded with signifiers (aesthetic surface) and has become divorced from the collective; there is no need for internal reinforcement against a subordinating external force when one has such a slippery class composition. The hipster is not oppressed, and purports to signify the pinnacle of individual choice and cultural savoir faire (though this position is problematized by the amoebic development of a youth subculture with roots in working class communities). The hipster's resistance is not to social subordination but to modernity itself, to a meaning-deficit brought on by a loosely defined, insecure mainstream culture that is less and less able to provide collective ontological sustenance. Perhaps the youth-hipster is an attempt to introduce a degree of collectivity in order to partially overcome alienation and inwardness, though this does not excuse the continued loss of substance and meaning in style and aesthetic value."

(Michael Reeve, 2013, Academia.edu)

Hakanaï dance performance 2013

"Hakanaï is a solo choreographic performance that unfolds through a series of images in motion. In Japanese Hakanaï denotes that which is temporary and fragile, evanescent and transient, and in this case something set between dreams and reality. While widely associated with nature, the term is now often used to elicit an intangible aspect of the human condition and its precariousness. It encompasses two elements: that concerning the human being as well as that related to dreams. This symbolic relationship is the foundation of the dance composition in which a dancer gives life to a space somewhere between the borders of imagination and reality, through her interactions with the images she encounters. The images are on-stage animations that move in physical patterns according to the rhythm of the live sounds that they follow. The performance's outcome is the revelation of a digital installation to its audience."
