Modern audiovisual media have spawned a plague of fantasies, electronically inspired phantasms that cloud the ability to reason and prevent a true understanding of a world increasingly dominated by abstractions whether those of digital technology or the speculative market.

Into this arena, enters i[ek: equipped with an agile wit and the skills of a prodigious scholar, he confidently ranges among a dazzling array of cultural references explicating Robert Schumann as deftly as he does John Carpenter to demonstrate how the modern condition blinds us to the ideological basis of our lives."
