Tangled Nodes: Self Observation Notes #2 | Hawthonn
"Can you imagine rising early in the morning, trudging to the cloister of Desmodus and kneeling on the sodden earth to lick the dew from the rough superfices of the rock? To tongue and bite the celestial mosses that adhere to the surface, and rub cheeks against the rough scabs of lichen? To take a blessed chipping, a pebble relic, and grind it between your front teeth? To lie with the slug, face down on the rock, and kiss the shadow-mouth of your own daemon as it reclines beneath you? To hope that it will whisper the secrets of the dragon’s angle, or the chain of winds, or an impulsive rite: chew on the holly leaf; sculpt your god from mud; take up arms against the brambles."

The Quietus | Features | Berberian At The Gate: Broadcast & The Death Knell Of Hauntology
"...'hauntology''s champions end up pulping their subject matter to feed their theory. Like the similarly détourned 'psychogeography', it deadens the senses to the qualities (you'd hope) it was intended to reveal. Both are cases of theory slipping into ersatz theology – fated attempts to capture elusive, unspeakable experiences in yards of self-referential explication guaranteed to stamp out their pleasures. There's nothing wrong with men in their forties enjoying shared tastes and nostalgic triggers, but do they have to be so po-faced about it?"

"Among the wide range of articles, I found the one on The Big Grey Man of Ben Macdhui most interesting, since it contains a number of notes and sources on how our environment may potentially incline people to experience the sensation of a ‘presence’ in their midst..."

3:AM Magazine » Against All Ends: Hauntology, Aesthetics, Ontology.
"The out of jointness is not the opposition of the present to either the part or the future of indeed a mere disordering of these temporal modes. Derrida specifically warns against this: “A spectral moment, a moment that no longer belongs to time, if one understands by this word the linking of modalized presents (past present, actual present: ‘now,’ future present) … Furtive and untimely, the apparition of the specter does not belong to that time” (10). As a result, hauntology in its Derridean formulation counters the criticism put forward by James Bridle, that “it deals with the problem of the future by going back to the past” (11) and that it needs to be opposed by the radically new. This reiteration of the standard modal temporalities of past, present and future is both symptomatic of the problems of an aesthetic interpretation of hauntology and at the same time, the very problem that Derrida is confronting with his concept of hauntology."

Brannten Schnüre and German Hauntology. | No Fear Of Pop
"Although the tendency to fall for trite, romanticist pastiche is always only a step away in Germany, I’ve felt that hauntology as an artistic concept has never really gained a foothold in the local experimental underground (as opposed to fine art, a point convincingly made by Adam Harper in reference to Neo Rauch). Considering this, I was both very surprised and quite intrigued to come across the latest offering by Frankfurt-based cassette imprint SicSic Tapes, a C-40 split between Johannes Schebler aka Baldruin and Christian Schoppik, who records under the moniker Brannten Schnüre."

"I think my problem with hauntology is that it deals with the problem of the future by going back to the past. And that is fine: but it will not save us."

Found Objects: The Number Lady
"Title sequence to never-broadcast TV series. Filmed by Southern TV in 1975, and abandoned for reasons that have never been fully explained (though all sorts of rumours abound). Even the subject of the series is unclear, some claiming it is a straightforward drama about shortwave number stations, and others that it's a supernatural story about a a boy who can communicate with ghosts that have been trapped by pylons in a field near his home..."
