DATACIDE – MAGAZINE FOR NOISE AND POLITICS

WE CELEBRATE THE RELEASE OF DATACIDE 13 WITH A 2 FLOOR PARTY OF CONCRETE BREAKCORE HARDCORE DRUM&BASS EXPERIMENTAL NOISE + CONFERENCE

TALKS & DISCUSSIONS:

CHRISTOPH FRINGELI
Introduction to the thirteenth print edition of datacide – the magazine for noise & politics

JASON SKEET (UK)
“In search of the constructivist moment: from Russian Futurism to South London Speedcore (via 1975)”
“It’s not freedom that I want but a way out!” So proclaimed the ape in
Kafka’s short story ‘A Report to the Academy’. This talk takes this ape’s
proclamation as a reference point for the construction of a map that could
be used to locate potential points of escape. The first part of this talk
identifies what exactly it is that we may be seeking to escape from. We
will then embark on an exploration of a series of problems, some of which
may involve us asking: what is the meaning of Mayakovsky’s “our”? what is
a sonic community? and how exactly did the world change in 1975?
Jason Skeet is currently completing a book about contemporary poetry. In
the last years of the previous century he was involved in the Association
of Autonomous Astronauts (AAA) and this talk may, or may not, build on a
certain number of exit strategies previously put forward by the AAA.

DAVID CECIL (UGANDA)
“Confessions of an Accidental Activist – Sexual politics and homophobia in Uganda”
David Cecil’s contribution to this issue of Datacide looks at the politics
of sexuality in Uganda from a very subjective angle. The author found
himself in the media spotlight in 2012/13 after he produced a comedy drama
in Kampala (Uganda) which was mistakenly portrayed as a piece of ‘gay
activism’. The US evangelist movement, international rights activists and
the mainstream media have all contributed in different ways to misleading
perceptions of sexuality in Uganda. Meanwhile, more substantial and
complex factors of post-colonial socio-economic transformation have been
(deliberately?) overlooked, along with the actual experience of daily life
for LGBTI people in Uganda. The author will give a brief presentation
focusing on the politics of identity in Uganda, and looks forward to a
discussion on international sexual politics.

MARK HARRISON (SPIRAL TRIBE)
“A Darker Electricity – a co-founder talks about the history of Spiral Tribe”
Mark will be talking about his personal experience with the Spiral Tribe
sound system and how that experience revealed the establishment’s
invention of plausible narratives to define territories and control them –
whether those territories be physical, social, intellectual, artistic or
electronic.
