Datacide Conference
Talks on Electronic Music Countercultures; Sonic Fiction and Geographic Information Systems

Lauren (DJ Nemeton) – Raves and Riots: Networked Counter-cultural Strategies – An Introduction to Datacide 
Datacide, the magazine for noise and politics, has appeared in irregular intervals since 1997, first in London, then Basel, and is now headquartered in Berlin with a presence in Los Angeles. Datacide appears as a print magazine, and the crew has organized lectures and conferences on issues of subversion and the culture industry, as well as underground parties in Berlin. Datacide is not particularly concerned with aesthetics, and instead focuses upon an emancipatory critique of late capitalist society and the exploration of the multitude of internationalist antagonistic counter-cultural practices.

Sean Nye – Sonic Fiction: The Musical Case of Philip K. Dick’s Martian Time Slip
Music and sound recording play central roles in the science fiction of Philip K. Dick. Dick’s experiences as a radio and music store clerk during his youth, as well as his lifelong practices as an LP-collector and audiophile, are reflected throughout his major novels. This paper traces the ways in which Dick engages music and sound by analyzing his classic novel from 1964, “Martian Time-Slip.” My talk will explore how Dick’s references to composers, musical instruments, and audio technology in “Martian Time-Slip” demonstrates a careful consideration of the social and political role of music and sound during the Cold War. It will also show how Dick’s science fiction literary technique was able to offer narratives that address music and audio technology in striking ways. Thus, we will see that Dick’s role in modern music is not limited to the extraordinary influences he has had on musical subcultures and popular culture since the 1960s. His own writings are influenced by, and indeed saturated with, music – and noise.

Split Horizon – Salt Marsh to State: (un)Divided Space
Maps are synonymous with how we see the world, both mentally and as media. Cartography attempts to organize the infinite information of our physical existence, creating areas and structures that we can contemplate and discuss. This practice defines space, and as a consequence divides space with tremendous consequences politically, commercially, and ecologically. This talk will contrast several different ways we have ordered our apprehension of geography. A main point will be that these processes of map creation are always subjective and encode specific motivations and outcomes, particularly in the disconnect between virtual ownership boundaries and ecological structures. The talk with conclude with several suggestions for engagement in this contested media as well as action beyond mediation.

Start time: 4pm
The talks will be followed by Q & A.
The print edition of datacide #13 is released on October 12 in Berlin and November 15/17 in LA.

Datacide Launch Event in London – Sunday October 20 at Vinyl, Deptford

An evening with talks and music to mark the launch of issue 13 of Datacide, the international magazine for noise and politics.

It will feature talks from Datacide contributors, including:

– David Cecil (Uganda) – Confessions of an Accidental Activist – Sexual politics and homophobia in Uganda -David 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.

– Neil Transpontine (London) on the 1990s movement against the ‘anti-rave’ Criminal Justice Act. Twenty years ago the UK Government announced its plans for new laws notoriously targeting gatherings with music ‘characterised by repetitive beats’, sparking off a mass campaign of opposition.

– Christoph Fringeli (Berlin) on Datacide magazine.

Sunday night sounds from DJ Controlled Weirdness.

The event will take place at Vinyl (4 Tanners Hill, SE8) the new record shop/bar/cafe/gallery in Deptford
from 7-10 pm

Nearest rail stations: Deptford Bridge DLR, Deptford; buses including 453, 177, 225. Ten minutes from New Cross London Overground.
