Mimesis - Art Imitating Life mp3 album

Anti-mimesis is a philosophical position that holds the direct opposite of Aristotelian mimesis. Its most notable proponent is Oscar Wilde, who opined in his 1889 essay The Decay of Lying that, "Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life".

referencing Art Imitating Life, CD, Album, PSY-062. Art Imitating Life' represents more than just sublime listening enjoyment, it is an involving sensory journey. Perhaps reminiscent of certain points in your life - a warm embrace from your mother as a child, a cool summer night on the beach with the waves lapping at your feet, or maybe just the first time you dropped acid - the personal and somewhat vulnerable content of the lyrics and spoken word feel like those few moments where you were able to relinquish. The music is suitably engulfing - pads and pianos drenched in velvet reverbs as deep as the ocean, slippy, down-tempo, Gabrielesqe rhythms - the divine ambiance created in this masterpiece liberates your mind as you follow Steve Kilbey's hypnotic voice, never rushing you forward or holding you back.

Reviews about Mimesis - Art Imitating Life (4):
Onoxyleili
This is great experience for all the "Coil", Laurie Anderson, C93 ... but with more Psychedelic asthetics, which is more emotional for me...
Faell
This is colorful ambient music with some guy talking and "singing" in a "gay" voice in the foreground throughout the CD. Don't ask me why. They might have made decent music in the background but I can't be bothered trying to listen to it around his voice. It almost sounds like a blend between an audio book and ambient music. Unique? Maybe. My idea of interesting music? No. The title sounds good, but unfortunately I don't see any relation between it and the music.

Lol. The voice isn't 'gay', it's Australian!

'Art Imitating Life' represents more than just sublime listening enjoyment, it is an involving sensory journey. Perhaps reminiscent of certain points in your life - a warm embrace from your mother as a child, a cool summer night on the beach with the waves lapping at your feet, or maybe just the first time you dropped acid - the personal and somewhat vulnerable content of the lyrics and spoken word feel like those few moments where you were able to relinquish everything, and just feel wonder at all the world around you. Add to this an element of the surreal, self-aware nature of a Charlie Kaufman script ('Adaptation', 'Being John Malkovich', 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind'), and you start to wonder if you're part of the production yourself. The music is suitably engulfing - pads and pianos drenched in velvet reverbs as deep as the ocean, slippy, down-tempo, Gabrielesqe rhythms - the divine ambiance created in this masterpiece liberates your mind as you follow Steve Kilbey's hypnotic voice, never rushing you forward or holding you back. A distinctive and unique release, it's apparent 'Art Imitating Life' was created with the utmost care and love to define a beautiful and awe inspiring musical soundscape.
