Heart of Noise 2018
Heart of Noise presents music and images, shatters the complaisant mosaic of serious and entertaining, ends apartheid and cocooning, and destroys the asocial sound construct by inviting all to attend: tape-loopers, hardware apologists, futurists, guitarists, music-machinists, apocalypticists and post-apocalypticists, Musique Deconcrete, Godfathers and Godmothers, Paris, Chicago, Detroit, Belgrade, London, Vancouver, Istanbul, Accra, Berlin, Vienna, and kitz.
Decocooning Society opens up genre boundaries and filter bubbles, not presenting larvae or ugly ducklings but the pool of butterflies in a garden of branching paths. Decocooning Society goes further, making contemporary sounds audible: the pulsating continuum of the subcultures, the forgotten utopia behind the end-time of democracies, spaces, energies, movements, ecstasies, concentration, withdrawal, opposition and hedonism. It rocks, hammers, raves, dubs, discusses, footworks, disassembles, tears up, cuts up, scratches, envisions, visualizes, with hands up in the air and head first into dancing.
Long live temporary autonomous zones; let us (all of us) chant once more:
People can deal with beauty!
