futures past and present

At Pitchfork, my review  of Close To the Noise Floor, a fascinating box set of formative UK electronica from the late 70s and early 80s - synthpunk, industrial, minimal wave, ambient and unclassifiable oddities.


This week I am in Lyon for European Lab Forum to deliver a keynote  -  TOMORROW NEVER KNOWN : LE FUTUR IMPRÉVISIBLE DE LA POP CULTURE, followed by a dialogue with Wyndham Wallace. The subtitle translates as "The Unpredictable Future of Pop Culture" - literally not something you can predict, although that said, I probably will be unloosing a few rash prophesies and speculative probes.
