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.

14.10.2011: Datacide Soliparty @ Subversiv

Friday, 14 October 2011

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.

Party:
Sigma, UK
Tato: (Live) – Italy
Crash.01
Base Force One: (Live)
Cannibal Brothers
Nemeton
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

datacide fundraisers so far!

First of all massive thanks and big shouts to all who have played at or otherwise contributed to the fundraisers for datacide in the last months:

Last but not least thanks to the authors who came and spoke at datacide events: John Eden, Christoph Fringeli, Lauren Graber, Stewart Home, Oona Leganovic, Hans-Christian Psaar, David Schwertgen, Neil Transpontine, Andrea Wald, Alexis Wolton… TBC!

The (relatively small, considering the numbers of parties and the amazing line-ups) funds have greatly contributed to printing and mailing costs of datacide 10 and we have a few hundred euros in the war chest for datacide 11.
Despite this we still need more funds which we are unlikely to raise with the current series of parties at the Knochenbox (the venue is small and we pay for travel expenses).
What about other sources of funds? While sales of the magazine have been reasonably good, the trickle of money is very slow as a large number of magazines are distributed on a sale or return, or on a swap basis.
The donation button on this web site has barely been used so far – please consider making a donation if you find worth supporting what you read!

We are planning to release datacide 11 in the coming months and will organize another conference at some point this year. We urgently need funds to realize these projects, so if you’re in Berlin, come to the parties, if you read us online make a donation, order back and future issues or advertise in the paper edition (information on request)!
