(Un)Popular Music: Alternative Lifestyle And Sub-Culture In Acoustic Space

Wednesday March 2, 6:00 - 8:00 PM

exp22Join us with your acoustic or electric guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, bongos, etc. (or if “unmusical” just bring yourself!) to probe the nether regions of existence, wrought of the escape from the bounds of logical, visual space. This will be a night of satire, performance of the burlesque and the bizarre, and consideration of the potential for genuine counter-cultural activity in the new media environment of late capital, which itself thrives on cultural appropriation and transgression.

Probing the hidden structures of new media environments, the New Explorations Group seeks not only to conceive but also to perceive the ways in which our psyches and cultures are being transformed by our intimate relationships with (de-)evolving technologies.
This series is curated by Adam Pugen (UofT iSchool). Open to all interested parties.
