greetings, everyone, and happy 2004, hopefully one much improved from
rotten old 2003. We've got a couple of events coming up; here's the
1. "Sound Generation" is a collection of interviews with sound
artists Autonomedia will hopefully be publishing in 2004. The
interviews get into the political ramifications of sound artists'
practices, conceptual questions on the nature of sound and
demarcations of sound art, the political economy of performance and
distribution, and lots more. The book will be released with a double
CD of material from the artists involved.
Later this week we're co-sponsoring a pair of events to raise
printing costs for the book, involving many of the artists in the
project. Have a look at the flyer for the event at
http://www.autonomedia.org/aoj.pdf ; the concise details are as
Thursday, January 8, 8pm: A night of immersive electro-acoustics at
Experimental Intermedia, 224 Centre Street (at Grand), $5. Performers
include Claudio Chea (Puerto Rican soundscape artist), Annea Lockwood
and Paul Ryan (eco-composition in audio and video), Gen Ken
Montgomery (longtime lower Manhattan experimental sound curator),
Tobias Van Veen, Greyg Filastine (of Seattle's anarchist drum corps,
the Infernal Noise Brigade), Gregory Whitehead (well-known radio arts
voice), and Pamela Z (SF-based performance artist).
Saturday, January 10, 8pm: Four rooms of sounds and sights at
OfficeOps in Bushwick, Brooklyn, 57 Thames Street, $10 (info:
www.officeops.org). Performers will include some of the above, as
well as multiple simultaneous radio transmissions, musical robots,
video work, and a sound collage using the interviews in the book.
Both events will be streamed at http://www.free103point9.org , but
please come out if you've got the opportunity and inclination!

2. Autonomedia will be tabling at the 7th Annual National Conference
on Organized Resistance in DC on January 24 and 25. This is a
weekend-long series of workshops and events -- dozens of them --
creating a space for radical discourse and collective empowerment, at
the American University. There's a robust website at
http://www.organizedresistance.org/index.shtml for more info; come
out, come out!

and just a reminder, there's a constant flurry of discussion and
dismantling of current events on the Interactivist Info Exchange;
make a visit to http://slash.autonomedia.org part of your daily
browse, and please post articles as well. You don't have to register
to make replies or to post stories.
that's it from here; the links at the top of this email should enable
your control over these emails (which, of course, I try to keep
occasional and concise, not to mention private and maybe once in a
while charming as well...)
