Review of Electrofringe 2008

2226_mackinlay_tapeprojects2.jpg[image: Lock Groove Flip Book Exhibition (Tape Projects); photo Torunn Higgins] Dan McKinley has written a review of Electrofringe 2008 in Newcastle, Australia — electrofringe will eat itself — in the Dec-Jan 2009 issue of realtime 88.

Once, this was a festival whose name summarised it neatly, at least in my rapidly decaying memory. Electrofringe was the crook between the burgeoning branches of fringe doof culture and the emerging electronic arts. Flocks of darkwave cyberpunk fashionistas and squat activists gathered there. The coin in trade was esoteric skills learned on the knee of expensive and time-consuming experience beyond the reach of the owner’s manual. Continue reading

Book on Experimental Music in Australia

expmusic_cover1.jpgExperimental Music: Audio Explorations in Australia; edited by Gail Priest: Written by artists, producers and participants in alternative music-making, and including a companion CD, Experimental Music explores the development of forms, ideas and scenes in Australia from the 1970s to the present. It brings together a wide range of musical experimentation, from post-punk, noise, appropriation, electronic dance and listening music, to free improv, computer process music, experimental radio, instrument building and audiovisual fusions — practices that have formed an integral part of Australian creative culture. Experimental Music illustrates how these forms have influenced each other to create a fertile and diverse culture, and highlights why it is vital to question, experiment and break the rules.

Neural 15th Anniversary: Issue #31

n31.jpgNeural 15th Anniversary: Issue #31: Neural magazine celebrates 15 years of publishing with Issue #31 and joining S.W.A.M.P. group (Doug Easterly and Matt Kenyon) for a collective micro-printing action.

Subscribers will receive a numbered / limited edition of S.W.A.M.P.’s “Notepad” sheet of paper with an envelope. It looks like an everyday yellow legal paper, but each line is constructed of micro-printed text and contains the personal details of Iraqi civilian casualties. Subscribers are triggered to write a letter or memo or draw a picture on it and send it to the White House, then signing up for a free replacement sheet on the S.W.A.M.P. website, if they want. Once in circulation each sheet then acts as a “Trojan horse” – slipping the unwanted and unacknowledged civilian body count data into official governmental archives. This is a joint action that proves how paper and pixel together can make the difference.
