There's a little-noticed mistake in the recording for "Zombie" by The Cranberries where in the pre-chorus the lead singer sings "and their bombs" twice! I fixed it so you can hear the song the way it was intended.

You're welcome!

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

Last night for Unsound - DeForrest Brown Jr and James Hoff's new work HOBO UFO (v. The New World) with a fascinating artist talk afterward that includes discussion of whiteness as an interface: youtu.be/fo_mVN3nztg?t=8559

just finished freire's 'pedagogy of the oppressed'. its framing of a co-operative and problem-based education process both speaks to my approach to teaching and pushes me to extend it. i particularly appreciate the focus on praxis, supported by freire's argument that 'human activity is theory and practice; it is reflection and action'. @doktorb thanks for the push to finally read it.

My keynote for ActivityPub Conference 2020 is now online a few days before the conference begins! Since it's a fully remote conference, the idea is you can (should?) watch the talks before the interactive/live sessions later this week.

Here's the keynote, which is about ways to provide value to users that CANNOT be re-centralized by the big corporations: https://conf.tube/videos/watch/b8d6c88a-0e73-46dd-9e35-d4645bb12db8

And all the other talks, which I'm excited to watch: https://conf.tube/video-channels/apconf_channel/videos

Loads of great stuff in the Unsound Intermission program announcement - Machine Listening with Liquid Architecture, Fractal Fantasy, James Hoff and Speaker Music (killleerrrr), a deep listening workshop with Laraaji, etc - kicks off Oct 1 with limited rego for some sessions unsound.pl/en/intermission/sch

Hi @darius I've just finished setting up a Hometown server @avantwhatever.org with a view to starting an experimental meeting space for some like minded folk. I may yet break everything but that's part of the fun right? Anyway, just reaching out to say thanks for all your work on it. The local-only feature is a really key contribution I think. Super interested in what you're doing with events too.

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
