Anthony Rother "THE CCM CORPORATION" In the future there will be only one corporation. The CCM Corporation. This corporation will take care of all the needs of the people.  The algorithms of this company will analyze and predict every single behavior of humans. With the help of their incredible infrastructure and their financial and political power this company will make these predictions a reality. This human society will function under the control of a self-fulfilling prophecy.  This prophecy is predicted by the CCM algorithms. A perfectly controlled and organized life in the present in combination with a future automated by algorithms. The CCM Corporation. The CCM Corporation. The CCM Corporation.

Anthony Rother "ROBO-POP SOCIETY" I saw it on the screen today. The world is in danger. We are in danger. Nature and humanity. Information for the nations. Movement and mobility. Fuel. Oil. Plastic. Energy. Future possibilities. Invent to keep up. We have to hold back. Robo-Girl and Robo-Boy The dark forces are playing world games. Robo-Girl and Robo-Boy All consumers are consuming. Data-Girl and Data-Boy Holding hands In the future. Data-Girl and Data-Boy Next dimension for the lovers. Robo-Pop Society

Anthony Rother "ESCAPE FROM SECTOR 8" Human nature and the algorithm. There is no hope. There is no escape. We stay forever. The CCM corporation has synthesized me with all my life memories and then saved these data on their secure ghost RAM cluster located in the CCMX cloud sector 8 binary source 72. I became one of the first victims of this new exciting digital technology combined with genius megalomania. But maybe I was myself the unbelievable genius and filed my avatar by myself in this uncanny location. I regret if so. Please forgive me and save me from this dark strange mechanical disk space. The content we see and hear is a computer simulation. I am not real. I am not here. I am a virtual machine running on an operating system. AI technology predicting someones future. I am speaking to you and all the other memories that were layered, compressed and filed in this zone of the CCMX cloud. There is someone out there that has the power to revise our being or status. Do it.

Anthony Rother "THE MAN OF THE FUTURE" In the time machine endless different lives. I am drifting in bass. We are drifting thru the times. In the time machine Pictures of my life. We are drifting in bass. We are drifting thru the times. Worlds in the computer. We look into the future. The man with the bass Is the man of the future. Beats from the computer. We're dancing in the future. The man with the breaks is the man of the future. The man of the future.

about

Making an album is not a linear or serial process.
It's a creative journey attached with the real life, my life.
Many of the daily experiences are becoming part of my composing process.

Thoughts and conclusions are encrypted into metaphors.
Or stories are written sometimes 1:1 straight out of my life.
The music communicates with me through creative coincidences and sends beside the sounds fascinating ideas to me.

As you can read I try to find the right words to explain it.
Everything I say about this creative process is just again only a metaphor or a model of what really happens when I make music.

Does this somehow sounds mystic to you?
Yes?
Well that's because the creative process is mystic.
It's like sending letters to a stranger and receiving answers from a stranger but nobody can proof that he really exists.
His letters are existing proofs but the existence of the stranger itself who sends you these letters is just a belief.

To me that's the most fascinating fact of creativity.
I know that what I believe.
I believe in what I know.
Are you still with me?

Is this something you are interested in?
Is this here something you would like to read as the description of an album?
Or do you think this is too crazy?
Or do you think I am crazy?

Come on you must have any type of opinion on this.
No?
A belief without any evidence is a very common appearing thing.
But a belief with evidence?

This album is a piece of evidence.
The evidence for my belief in the existence of this stranger with who I am communicating.


+++ DEUTSCH +++

Das produzieren eines Albums ist kein linearer oder serieller Prozess.
Es ist eine kreative Reise, die mit dem wirklichen Leben verbunden ist, meinem Leben.
Viele der täglichen Erfahrungen werden Teil meines Kompositionsprozesses.

Gedanken und Schlussfolgerungen werden in Metaphern verschlüsselt.
Oder Geschichten werden manchmal 1: 1 direkt aus meinem Leben geschrieben.
Die Musik kommuniziert mit mir durch kreative Zufälle und sendet neben den Klängen faszinierende Ideen an mich.

Wie Du lesen kannst, versuche ich, die richtigen Worte zu finden, um es zu erklären.
Alles, was ich über diesen kreativen Prozess sage, ist einfach wieder nur eine Metapher oder ein Modell dafür, was wirklich passiert, wenn ich Musik mache.

Klingt das für Dich irgendwie mystisch?
Ja?
Das liegt daran, dass der kreative Prozess mystisch ist.
Es ist, als würde man Briefe an einen Fremden senden und Antworten von einem Fremden erhalten, aber niemand kann beweisen, dass Er wirklich existiert.
Seine Briefe sind existierende Beweise, aber die Existenz des Fremden selbst, der einem diese Briefe schickt, ist nur ein Glaube.

Für mich ist das die faszinierendste Tatsache der Kreativität.
Ich weiß das, woran ich glaube.
Ich glaube an das, was ich weiß.
Bist Du noch da?

Interessiert Dich das?
Ist das hier etwas, das du als Beschreibung eines Albums lesen möchtest?
Oder findest du das zu verrückt?
Oder denkst du ich bin verrückt?

Komm schon, du musst irgendeine Meinung dazu haben.
Nein?
Ein Glaube ohne Beweise ist eine sehr häufig auftretende Sache.
Aber ein Glaube mit Beweisen?

Dieses Album ist ein Beweis.
Der Beweis für meinen Glauben an die Existenz dieses Fremden, mit dem ich kommuniziere.

// Lyrics //

+++ "THE CCM CORPORATION" +++

In the future there will be only one corporation.
The CCM Corporation.
This corporation will take care of all the needs of the people.
The algorithms of this company will analyze and predict every single behavior of humans.
With the help of their incredible infrastructure
and their financial and political power
this company will make these predictions a reality.
This human society will function under the
control of a self-fulfilling prophecy.
This prophecy is predicted by the CCM algorithms.
A perfectly controlled and organized life in the present
in combination with a future automated by algorithms.
The CCM Corporation.
The CCM Corporation.
The CCM Corporation.


+++ "REPLICA" +++

In some weird way no human would ever think of.
You know the AI will learn to do what you ask it to do.


+++ "ROBO-POP SOCIETY" +++

I saw it on the screen today.
The world is in danger.
We are in danger.
Nature and humanity.
Information for the nations.
Movement and mobility.
Fuel. Oil. Plastic. Energy.
Future possibilities.
Invent to keep up.
We have to hold back.

Robo-Girl and Robo-Boy
The dark forces are playing world games.
Robo-Girl and Robo-Boy
All consumers are consuming.
Data-Girl and Data-Boy
Holding hands In the future.
Data-Girl and Data-Boy
Next dimension for the lovers.

Robo-Pop Society


+++ "ESCAPE FROM SECTOR 8" +++

Human nature and the algorithm.
There is no hope.
There is no escape.
We stay forever.
The CCM corporation has synthesized me
with all my life memories and then saved these data
on their secure ghost RAM cluster located
in the CCMX cloud sector 8 binary source 72.
I became one of the first victims of this new exciting
digital technology combined with genius megalomania.
But maybe I was myself the unbelievable genius and
filed my avatar by myself in this uncanny location.
I regret if so.
Please forgive me and save me from this
dark strange mechanical disk space.
The content we see and hear is a computer simulation.
I am not real.
I am not here.
I am a virtual machine running on an operating system.
AI technology predicting someones future.
I am speaking to you and all the other memories
that were layered, compressed and filed in this
zone of the CCMX cloud.
There is someone out there
that has the power to revise our being or status.
Do it.


+++ "MAN OF THE FUTURE" +++

In the time machine endless different lives.
I am drifting in bass.
We are drifting thru the times.
In the time machine
Pictures of my life.
We are drifting in bass.
We are drifting thru the times.
Worlds in the computer.
We look into the future.
The man with the bass Is the man of the future.
Beats from the computer.
We're dancing in the future.
The man with the breaks is the man of the future.

The man of the future.
