FASTA! by Iacopo Seri
Fasta is a libertarian practice. But it’s not absolute freedom. It’s freedom within strong rules. Open your default audio recording software on your computer, bring some music instruments, your voice, your body. Now it’s up to you: jam, make sounds, with friends or alone. Record. Don’t think to what you’re doing, just relax, just do it, just fasta. Now let’s speed it up two or four times. It’s time to listen: it’s not you, you didn’t do that crazy staff, with that noisy squirrel sounds. Export it, give it a title in 5 seconds, very fasta. The first one is the bestTit one. Record a lot, don’t bother about quality, it doesn’t matter. Record, listen, organize it in playlists, give them a cover art. Fasta is about everyone, everybody can do it, everybody can join. Just do it, you’re not responsible at all. This work aims to encourage people to embrace this woderful practice, a practice of freedom. It’s not worth mentioning that also Slowsta exist. Altered states, if present, can only bring to different blends of Fasta.
