In Progress. All of this will make sense one day. By Juha van 't Zelfde.
Here’s a quote from an interview with artist and musician TCF that helped me decide to invite him to Brighton:
“There’s a system built around TCF which is not really described to anyone,” Holdhus divulges. “These tracks, they go over long periods of time, so it’s not like I composed a track because I feel like that this day. It’s more like it’s needed for the system to function. When you build these systems, you have to maintain them. You can expand them, you can see the potentials.”
Expansion also includes TCFX, a bot programmed with Lars-like commentary to give interviews on his behalf (for the record, this one took place in person) and a talk to be presented at Poland’s Unsound Festival based on his new ideas for the archiving and distribution of music based on the Bitcoin model of blockchain technology. TCF is obviously a system of increasing complexity.
“It’s something that you might have to go your whole life to fully understand,” he agrees. “And it’s also getting very complicated for myself to understand it.”
Suffice to say, I am over the moon that TCF will play live at our inaugural Progress Bar on 5 March. Don’t miss him.
