People sometimes ask me what’s the story behind the name solipsistic NATION. I first came across the phrase “Solipsistic Nation” in Greg Egan’s book, Permutation City. In the book, there are two characters who inhabit a digital universe, and because they can create and recreate their world and identities, they were truly solipsistic beings who led existential lives.
You can really lose yourself in the rhythms and sounds of electronic music. It’s often a faceless genre, so to some degree you can interpret the music as you like. Electronic music can both be a communal form of music and a form of individual expression. Hence, the name Solipsistic Nation. Plus, it just sounds so damn cool!
