The first night of datacide events happened on Thursday February 3 with Neil Transpontine’s talk “Dance Before The Police Come” and – since DJ Balli was stuck in Rome and couldn’t catch his plane – Nemeton’s talk about the American radical right and the rise of the tea party movement, plus discussion with Neil, Nemeton, Kovert, CF and the audience about topics in the new issue. Balli has safely arrived and his talk will be at 5pm at Cagliostro Lenbachstr. 10 10245 Berlin Friday! – before the launch party at subversiv.
We are currently adding the last finishing touches to the new print edition of datacide!
And we are preparing 2 events to launch Datacide 11: an evening of talks and a party:
Thursday, 3. February 2011 – TALKS & DISCUSSION
Cagliostro, Lenbachstr. 10, (Ostkreuz), from 17h
“333 bpm” – a sonic-fiction by Riccardo Balli
Iconographic references by: Caina
Every style in electronic music inspires a certain social behaviour, well more, it actually structures the listener’s brainframe. Do you want to know how? And, above all, do you want to smash this social brainframe down by hyper-mixing genres? Some tips on how to do this can maybe come from this fiction, a sonic one, of course!
Dance before the police come – talk by Neil Transpontine
What’s going on when police raid parties? Neil Transpontine explores the different ways laws on sex, drugs, noise, property and subversion are used to constrain dancing in the UK and across the world.
