A special workshop for experienced DJ’s led by John Collins and Mark Flash.
October 20 | 3-5pm
For the last thirty years the Detroit label, Underground Resistance (UR), has been producing techno music aiming at “electrifying the inner city with hi-tech, sci-fi thoughts.” Equipped with radical politics UR’s collective practice aligns itself with the African American working class experience combating the so-called “programming by mediocre mainstream music and public institutions. Simultaneously, a complex mythology invents a sonic future beyond fixed identities which cannot be racialized and stereotyped anymore. The idea of man and technology merging appears all over the UR universe—machines are being manipulated and experimented with to create the distinct extraterrestrial UR sound and explore humans’ potential to make and remake themselves.
The program includes conversation and music.
