Talks start at 6pm:
“Electronic and experimental music in Asia and Africa” by Cedrik Fermont
The official history of experimental and electronic music is mostly centered on developments in the “West” from the end of the 19th century through the 1960s, and yet, in 1944, the first known piece of African so-called “experimental music” was recorded by Halim El-Dabh in Cairo. This talk addresses the fact that electronic, experimental music, and by extension noise music, cannot been seen as a typically “Western” kind of music. The origins of the very notion of noise music do not entirely belong to “Western” culture, but most probably stem from technology, modernization, and often urbanism. What about non-Western composers of experimental, electronic and noise music, who have been written out of histories? Which culture(s) and which non-Western nations are they influenced by? Are they still maintained under a post-colonial cultural yoke?
“2012 IS THE SEASON FOR TREASON: An Assault on Establishment Culture in Germany” by the OKK Team Chus Martinez, Francisco José Avestruz & Otto Karl Kamal
Extending the assault on capitalist society through a radical take on Berlin Biennale 7, dOCUMENTA (13) and similar propaganda tools, the OKK Team will present their analysis of and strategies for countering these bourgeois gentrification festivals and their “activist” participants who are often sporting either extreme naivety or some “brown” (i.e. fascist) ideology.

“On the Map – Control and Freedom in Geographic Information Systems” by Split Horizon
The merger of cartography, statistical analysis and database technology threatens our privacy and autonomy, while simultaneously pluralizing our consensus of what exists, or has existed, at a place. Digital map making is now a crucial form of communication, and a newly contested media that begs exploration. This talk addresses the most severe technological consequences of location tracking, while presenting creative directions, détournements, and strategies that free and open source GIS/GPS technologies now make available to the general public.
– a more precise time-table for the talks will be posted closer to the date – and the talks will be free to attend.

Presented Datacide and Cagliostro
Film: “Un Tigre de Papel” (Dir. Luis Ospina, Colombia 2007, spanish with english subtitles).
Starts 22h introduced by R.C. (Datacide)
Pedro Manrique Figueroa, pioneer of collage in Colombia, has never had a biographer. For a very simple reason: his life’s like an adventure novel that is both incomplete and contradictory. It’s just based on fragmented reminiscences and anectodes passed on by word of mouth. Taking Manrique Figueroa’s life as a pretext, this film takes the viewer on a journey through history from the year 1934 up until 1981, when the artist mysteriously dissappeared from view. “A Paper Tiger” is itself a collage, where art and politics rub shoulders, where truth and lies are placed side by side, where documentary and fiction intermingle.
Tato: (Live) – Italy
Base Force One: (Live)
starts at midnight
Hard dubstep to noisy breakcore, experimental broken beats to hardcore drum’n’bass
Record: Last but not least we celebrate the new release on Praxis “Anonymous Series Volume Two” 12″: Dance time is here folks, the artistic ballet of fucking it up and shaking the old world to the ground!
Datacide Magazine: All proceeds of the party will go towards the printing costs of the next issue of datacide – magazine for noise & politics
in the space of Subversiv e.V., Brunnenstrasse 7.
no sexism, no racism, no nationalism
Sorry for the delay in mailing out orders for the paper edition ordered in the last few weeks. The reason for this is, to be able to offer the price of EUR 4.00 including shipping, we have to collect orders to be able to do a “mass mailout”. After an initial surge in the first couple of months, orders have slowed down considerably and with this the frequency of mailouts.
To mail a single copy it would cost EUR 3.50 for postage alone, so we’d be left with nothing after paypal costs and shipping.
We’re thinking of adding an option for EUR 6.00 which would include immediate shipping.
The best option though to receive the paper edition immediately upon release and long before content is put up on the internet, is to take out a subscription for EUR 10.00 for 3 issues. This can include past issues (only numbers 10 and 11 are still available at this point though.
In any case the next mailout will go to the post office on thursday July 21. All orders received before midday on thursday will be included in this mailout. So if you don’t have a paper copy of datacide yet, send EUR 4.00 (or 10.00 for a subscription) before 12 noon on thursday via paypal to email@example.com!
We will be at the Linke Buchtage this weekend presenting the latest issue of datacide.
You can find us at the stall of ça ira Verlag!
The bookfair is taking place at Mehringhof, Gneisenaustr. 2a, 10961 Berlin – closest public transport is Mehringdamm.
Opening times are Fri 17-22, Sat 11-22, Sun 11-17
See you there!
