Haiti OXfam Benifit (RE)


A reminder for tomorrow nite, one of my brother is in Haiti @ the moment and what he just wrote us a short update : logistics is very complex at the moment and a real nightmare.  they need staff, trucks, equipment, communications, warehouses, cash, etc. and all with security and coordination, the emergency team bonds very well and they all seem committed and sharing the same values. Even though the situation is difficult and the days are long, each message from him is full of positivity that they are indeed making progress in a productive way.

Please support tomorrow nite if ur in town !

The A&R Guy

A friend of mine (also know as Mark P or LINK back in da dayz...) sent me dis hilarious vid , and trust me this is da exact reality !!!!

Sonic Warfare : The Book


Producer, Dj & Hyperdub Rec. boss Kode 9 aka Steve Goodman has just released his book Sonic Warfare : Sound, Affect And The Ecology Of Fear... Résumé taken from 

Steve explores how sound can be deployed to produce discomfort, express a threat, or create an ambience of fear or dread--to produce a bad vibe. At the same time, artists and musicians generate intense frequencies in the search for new aesthetic experiences and new ways of mobilizing bodies in rhythm. In Sonic Warfare, Steve Goodman explores these uses of acoustic force and how they affect populations. Most theoretical discussions of sound and music cultures in relationship to power, Goodman argues, have a missing dimension: the politics of frequency.

 

Goodman supplies this by drawing a speculative diagram of sonic forces, investigating the deployment of sound systems in the modulation of affect. Traversing philosophy, science, fiction, aesthetics, and popular culture, he maps a (dis)continuum of vibrational force, encompassing police and military research into acoustic means of crowd control, the corporate deployment of sonic branding, and the intense sonic encounters of sound art and music culture. Goodman concludes with speculations on the not yet heard--the concept of unsound, which relates to both the peripheries of auditory perception and the unactualized nexus of rhythms and frequencies within audible bandwidths.





Daddy Goss RIP


Real sad news today... Dj, jazz lover & WAH WAH 45's Rec. founder Simon 'Daddy' Goss went to the other side... A true papa... He will be missed...
