Samples / Lyrics
- The title likely refers to the Jacquard loom, a loom created in the early 19th century that used punchcards to control the loom's individual strings. As such, it is the first example of binary computer programming. These cards would later be the inspiration for IBM's early mainframe punchcards.
- Jacquard may also refer to Albert Jacquard, a geneticist well known for defending the concept of 'degrowth'. 'Degrowthists' aim to maximize happiness and well-being through non-consumptive means—sharing work, consuming less, while devoting more time to art, music, family, culture and community. Jacquard also took a strong stand against commercial use of the human genome in the 1990s.
