Hauntology – the Visionary Fabric of Utopia with Ivan Beletsky

The elusory world of dreams, utopian mirages and visionary pseudohistoric memories. Postromantic longing for a misplaced childhood. Nostalgia for the times that never were. These are the elements of hauntological music, which reproduces and synthesises an audio pattern of the past to create landscapes of a chimerical future. Together with Ivan Beletsky, researcher of nostalgia in music and author of the telegram channel Khot’ odnim glazochkom zaglyanut’ (If Only I Could Have a Peep), we talked about the philosophical genesis of hauntology and the sociocultural role of hauntological music in Russia.

This episode is in Russian.
