Zeitgeist I, Ending Remix by America Dj Bassnectar

June 6, 2015 Admin 0

Famed, socially conscious American DJ Bassnector did a beautiful audio/video remix – live multimedia display – of the most important gestural section of Zeitgeist: The Movie. Many are unaware that Zeitgeist: The Movie was a 2007 performance work first, later to be adapted as an experimental documentary. At the 2011, I did an updated solo percussion, a/v version of it at the Zeitgeist Media Festival in Hollywood, including music from the series as a whole.

Though, it is hard to top this!:

Crazy Zeitgeist! OOOoo
Top Five “Zeitgeist The Movie” Myths!

 

1) The Zeitgeist Movement is all about support of Zeitgeist: The Movie!

Actually, as per my experience over the past 6 years, most within The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM) do not subscribe or agree with this film in general, although mixed reactions are most common.

QUESTION:
Dear Peter,

I was talking to a person in a free-market forum about Structural Coercion and Structural Violence as you often talk about and they argued that you are saying nothing more than “doing work” is Structural Coercion and … [Read More]
