The last installment in Cokes’ Pop Manifesto sequence, 1! normally takes a stroll as a result of the artist’s music selection, presenting the titles of 100 the latest albums launched about a 5 calendar year period. This annotated discography is paired with excerpts from an essay by critic Christoph Cox discussing rock music’s kinds and ideological premises, all laid over an appropriated classic documentary detailing how to project a film. Writes Cokes: “One could read through the film projectionist as an amusing metaphor for present-day artwork and tunes practice. Often in today’s ‘digital age’, a hybrid product of cultural shopper and producer, like the DJ, VJ, or ‘laptop’ electronic musician, displaces the regular purpose of artist/musician.”
