the site is a bit awkward to navigate but I'm into it, to me it has the vibe of bumping into people/losing sight of someone in a crowd? i'm keen to know what you think of it @benbyrne @p_hase ?

Show thread

a bit in love with this rewire online festival platform 🤩 live.rewirefestival.nl/ the fest ended yesterday but there's a bunch of streams available til next weekend so I'm doing some catch-up (fav so far is the claire rousay/Morita Vargas collab from Saturday)

Hey everyone. This Sunday, March 28, 11am-12pm AEDT @becfary and I will be leading a reading of the introduction to Jenny Odell's 'How to Do Nothing' at Hill of Content Bookshop for Melbourne Design Week. It's a wonderful chapter, and book, and we'll be responding to it with a focus on the question, 'How can we promote peer-to-peer learning through design?' Bec has graciously stepped in for Toni Roberts. Entry by donation booking, please join us if you can! designweek.melbourne/events/re

Spending time with this broadcast - wfmu.org/playlists/shows/98331 - from WFMU's Radio Row, Ariana Martinez + Jackson Roach listening-through/talking-through sensory ecologies and embodied perceptions 🍃

very lucky to be listening to a preview of Wound Without a Tear - daisart.bandcamp.com/album/wou - a gorgeous compilation of 'Australian' ambient and experimental music from 1993-2008, releasing on Daisart next week + for now there's one streamable track at the link. this'll definitely be my writing soundtrack this week 💚

A fantastically eerie set of field recording from Lawrence English - somehow claustrophobic even in feeling empty and vast - one you might enjoy in particular @becfary lawrenceenglish.bandcamp.com/a

Amy Hanley's 'Translating Ambiance Through Queer Ecologies: A Speculative Cartographic Imaginary', including their awesome piece 'Sonic Entanglements', is out in the new issue of Unlikely - unlikely.net.au/issue-06/queer

For me, for you by Natalia Newling in the new issue of Runway has an interesting online listening interface runway.org.au/natalia-newling/

“The so-called cloud is a definitely material and mainly hardwired network...” newyorker.com/culture/cultural [Kyle Devine on his book 'Decomposed: The Political Ecology of Music']

this article (and presumably the book it's about) focuses on music streaming, and i'd like to hear more of these conversations in other online listening environments/communities — the materialities of the so-called cloud is something i'm trying to be more thoughtful about

inspired by the frontyardprojects.org/ homepage I'm spending some time with native-land.ca/ and their API

thought some other folks here might be interested in their webinar — 'Enhancing Our Understanding: Learning and Teaching about Indigenous Cultures, Languages, and Territories' us02web.zoom.us/webinar/regist (it's this Friday 8:30am AEST if I've calculated right!)

Meeting, discussion and sharing space for those working critically and creatively with experimental digital sound, art and design, especially listening, technology, ecologies, capitalism and living through and beyond all of these
