Hey Wizards, who else feels drawn to a certain type of aesthetic? Or feels at home with one? I feel like some places online and in real life give off this vibe of being gateways, or liminal spaces at the entrance of a sort of parallel realm that comprises an aesthetic.


Sorry if this thread is only for visual stuff but this is an aesthetic I really like and wish I knew words to describe it that would lead me to finding more. I think "phantasmagoria" is a good word for it but nobody uses it that way. Fanged Noumena by Nick Land has a lot of it. Basically the aesthetic is methed out dreamlike mania. A lot of cyberpunk stuff is like this when it's not just doing the neo noir thing.


Here's a song that kind of has the aesthetic CCRU stuff.
have you noticed how a lot of contemporary subculture is the same manic schizophrenia, endless mix of high and low brow references, self-indulgent obscurantism, but stripped of the paranoic, edgy, apocalyptic vibe present in the 90s

I like anything that implies winter/cold since summer/heat are the things I hate the most. Been getting into black metal lately and it's full of stuff like that. Makes me wish I was a northern European

This kind of 90s aesthetic always made me feel better, or more relaxed. I've heard it called Frasurbane (so), but I'm not sure if it has an official name.

Heaviness, twilight, gloomy, dark, dreamlike, clouded, smudged, blurry, melancholic
I suppose I am drawn to those words and feel at home with them if that could be an aesthetic. It's easy to find paintings with the feeling, but music is harder.


Perhaps if I could take the dreamlike atmosphere of Cocteau twins, add some noise elements, distort it, and make it far darker; then I might find what I am looking for in music. Otherwise the above is close enough.
