    The expression "bright future" in Poland has an unequivocal ironic meaning. It means a false,
    demagogic promise of a wonderful life in an unspecified future.
    Such promises - apart from the advertising of course, are made on the daily basis for many decades
    now by technology itself. Almost behind every invention there is a promise of a future paradise on
    earth. Visions of futuristic sky floating cities and space holidays, already have their anthologies and
    museum exhibitions, and the first technological utopias will soon celebrate their century.
    Of course, the world has not changed so much. However, it changes enough that from time to time I
    experience a strange - and pleasant - impression of "living in the future". Hence, "Industrial music",
    treating about luminous promise of technology and its almost divine integration with nature, does
    indeed ironically - but only in half.
