[still from Phenomena And Occurrences (Julian House, 2008)]
THURSDAY 1st April 2010
Location: Cafe Oto, 18 - 22 Ashwin Street, Dalston, London E8 3DL
Time : 8pm
Tickets : £4 Ticket on the door only
A new series of monthly salon-type events, hosted by The Wire magazine, and dedicated to the fine art and practice of thinking and talking about music. The evenings, which will take place on the first Thursday of each month, will consist of readings, discussions, panel debates, film screenings, DJ sets and even the occasional live performance.
For the first event in the series, Revenant Forms: The Meaning of Hauntology, Mark Fisher (K-Punk), Adam Harper (Rouge’s Foam ) and Joseph Stannard (The Outer Church) will discuss the essence of the spectral, uncanny qualities of much contemporary audio, from dubstep to hypnagogic pop and beyond. The night will also include screenings of a number of short films by Julian House (Ghost Box, The Focus Group), which feature soundtracks by Broadcast, Belbury Poly and others; a live set by Moon Wiring Club; and eldritch vinyl interludes courtesy of Mordant Music.
