ZGK / S 38
Scharnweberstrasse 38, 10245 Berlin

 

This is a Soli Party which means a fundraiser for various print projects connected to Datacide, the magazine for noise and politics, which has been exploring the overlaps and frictions of radical (anti-)politics and electronic music since 1997.

With our fundraisers we have always followed the course that we aimed at finding a happy balance between providing exclusive, exciting and in many cases incredible international and local acts, covering at least their travel and other expenses as well as providing a fat sound, and the aim of funding our radical media projects.

The next projects will be:

  • DATACIDE FIFTEEN. The next regular issue of the magazine will be out in October 2015. Articles and contributions are being assembled now and we’re excited and confident that the upcoming issue will be another killer. Since 2011 we have published Datacide on a yearly schedule. At the very least we intend to continue this, but we have more in store: Books, a German edition, and we would like to increase the frequency of publication.
  • BERLINER KRISE. We are currently preparing a – kind of – German edition of Datacide. We have been based in Berlin since issue number 10 of Datacide came out. We’ve been very active, organising numerous parties, events and a couple of successful conferences, but we feel that the „missing link“ is a German language publication. BERLINER KRISE will be a 12-page A3-size newspaper which will feature translations from previous issues of Datacide, German language „versions“ of articles as well as exclusive content.
  • Datacide Book: EVERYTHING ELSE IS EVEN MORE RIDICULOUS. A complete reprint of Datacide issues 1-10 in one massive volume with new introductions and an index. We decided to do a thorough edit of the original layout and find a balance between correcting mistakes and improving readability one the one hand, retaining the original vibe and look and most importantly the complete content of the original issues.

All these projects are scheduled to appear in the next 2-5 months. For this we need money and support.

TRÜBE AUSSICHTEN FÜR DIE BOURGEOISIE at ZGK is our next party. If you are in Berlin, come and join us.

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.  For more info go to: http://2012istheseasonfortreason.wordpress.com/

“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.
