The Futant Collective | New album Singularity by Futant samples Ray Kurzweil
August 16, 2013
Coma Recordz | New album Singularity by Futant samples futurist Ray Kurzweil in track 12. The theory of a futant, amalgamating the words future and mutant was propagated by Timothy Leary, PhD, to describe those who have genetically activated thought patterns designed to facilitate the future.
All of our ideas are based on the future that we foresee, and fall in line with the futant archetype. The project reflects a deep interest, if not outright belief, in the principles that Leary put forth.
In particular, the ideas laid out about the power of technology and its ability to create alternate realities, causing greater spiritual and philosophical growth. Though this seems like a digression, it is not.
Futant | Futant and The Futant Collective are basically the same entity. Futant is the band and The Futant Collective is the umbrella project which allows for other creative endevours. We make documentaries and artwork as well, and the Collective allows for others to join us while the band is just the 2 founding members (Tim and Tyler).
The track is a free download available here.
