Intox Extravaganza at the DIY SPACE

These INTOX lineups are becoming embarrassing – the finest anywhere south of our Sun:
At the second DIY Space-based Intox Extravaganza, live music will be puked-out by

APOCALYPSE JAZZ UNIT

RUDE MECHANICALS

REPETITIVE JOHN

YORKSHIRE VS ESSEX

'Pride in Prejudice' by Yorkshire Vs Essex…live at the Camden Intox Extravaganza II…12-11-2016…

Geplaatst door Yorkshire Vs Essex op dinsdag 15 november 2016

MERLIN NOVA

Plus Intox reguars performing song-structured poetry from the MARVELLOUS MARIO of Mauritius via Newport via Lewisham…and cabaret-storytelling from PhD-toting UAL lecturer and Real-Crime journalist DR CHARLIE OUGHTON, who tells tales of a local flavour whilst packing a flashing strapon….

For our second Intox event (of many) held at the cavernous, not-for-profit-venue DIY Space for London, we welcome some total Intox exclusives…
Rude Mechanicals (purveyors of post-punk art-rock dark cabaret) were scheduled to appear at the last event, but some motor incident or other meant they never made it on stage; thus, Miss Roberts and her band will be rocking our universes on September 23rd instead…
Merlin Nova (about to present a solo show at Café Oto, and who is a constant Charles Hayward collaborator) makes her Intox debut peddling voice, synthesizer, violin, field recordings and other instruments in a mesmerising performance, in which one ought to expect the unexpected…
If this were not too much, Rick Jensen is bringing his mammoth mob of musicians known as Apocalypse Jazz Unit for the first time at an Intox. With the band assembling one by one as the show progresses, various saxophonists are joined by trombone, percussion and anything else they can muster…
Really excited that Repetitive John, another Intox virgin, will be armed with his SPD SX sample player and mallet to proffer some of the most catchy, yet depraved, songs that one will ever witness. Expect a mass sing-along about chemical women…
Despite these debuts, we are still lumbered with Yorkshire Vs Essex who serenade songs about serial killers and the nutcracker with bass, flute, purple trombone, accordian, guitar and synths…

DIY SPACE is “Open to members and their guests only. Join at diyspaceforlondon.org.” It is worth joining the Space, for a mere £2. If you have any questions accessing the venue for this event, please message us here at Intox Extravaganzas…

More details to come! Stay close to that refresh button!

Intox Extravaganzas are a mechanism for eclecticism, which is our specialism…and perhaps a touch of transvestism…

Designing a circular product : Crafting Waste Plastic

Workshop description :

This workshop is an introduction into the process of converting household plastic waste, into a valuable material resource. You will get the opportunity to melt down your own plastic and learn the necessary steps into how to form this material into a product, using modern manufacturing techniques such as CNC-milling. As well as this, you will be taught how to separate your plastics, to make sure you can create the best material as possible.
You will get the chance to design your own forms, where I will offer advice for how to make these from the waste plastic material. I will also teach you how to reprocess the product after you have finished with it, making sure that the material can be reused over and over again.

Who will be teaching me?

Tom Meades is a 3D designer, specializing in sustainable material and process exploration. He has a BA degree in 3D Design & Craft from The University of Brighton, as well as professional experience as a product designer.

Lower Slaughter + Luminous Bodies & Public Transport

Baba Yaga’s Hit Presents:
September 21st – DIY Space for London
Lower Slaughter Album Launch
Lower Slaughter, Luminous Bodies & Public Transport
Tickets £7 / 7:30

Having ploughed through the
UK underground for the past few years Brighton’s Lower Slaughter are set to smash through the fourth wall with the release of their ferocious debut album ‘What Big Eyes’ on Box Records. The four piece describe themselves modestly as a band “who make loud riffs”
though we at Box Records think the The Quietus description of “lurching noise-rock that occasionally works the angles but is chiefly a showpiece for big fuck-off riffs that call to mind Pissed Jeans, Nirvana and Harvey Milk” is more accurate. Throughout their
debut record ex-Divorce vocalist Sinead Young delivers roaring vocals leading her charging riff comrades into sonic battle. With ferocious lyrics telling stories of oppression and inequality interwoven with a backdrop of witchcraft, apparitions and tuberculosis.
The more discerning listener will draw parallels from these ancient times to modern life and might begin to ask themselves… has anything changed since these dark ages? Indeed, in ‘Take It’ we hear Sinead despair “We try to live our lives but we don’t have
the riches, we try to heal ourselves but the government just cut through the stiches, we’ve been dying like this for years”. Anyone who listens to this and doesn’t feel the urge to (at the very least) step outside and scream “I won’t take this anymore” needs
their pulse checking. ‘What Big Eyes’ is released digitally and on 12” vinyl on the 15th of September.

Discovering Plastics Talk

At the core of any making process, materials define the limitations of design, raise questions around social and ethical manufacturing processes and create the primary interface between us and our experienced world. In the second part of this series, Makerversity explores Fantastic Plastic and takes a closer look at how innovations in materials and processes is disrupting what we make and how.

Over the last ten years we have globally produced more plastic than during the whole of the last century. Plastics are one of the most commonly used materials at Makerversity, due to their versatility, affordability and durability. Yet according to Greenpeace 40% of plastics in Europe is used only once before ending up in landfill. In this talk we introduce designers and makers who are deconstructing plastics and using them in new innovative ways.
—————————————————————————–

Speakers:

Maria Arceo
Arceo’s talk will be focused around the origin of her current art installation ‘Future Dust’ – the outcome of a one-year long art project entitled ‘Thames Plastic & the exploration of future dust’, a collaborative art project with the aim to creatively inform and scientifically challenge our understanding of the widespread dispersion of plastic debris entering fluvial and marine water environments.

Rodrigo García González

Rodrigo will be talking about his new initiative: Skipping Rocks Lab. A sustainable packaging start-up based in London. The company is pioneering the use of natural materials such as alginate, an extract from brown seaweed, to create materials with low environmental impact. The company’s first product Ooho!, the edible water bottle, has received great media attention and consumer interest.

Andrew Merrit
Andy will talk about his collection of plastic found on the streets around the world that he believes will one day be viewed as precious objects. These abstract forms now hold unknown functions and have instead become ornaments. Alongside this and on the back of researching the Anthropocene for some recent Something & Son projects he will talk about a more recent collection of plastics found of the beach that are manmade materials but formed by nature.

Ovarian Psycos! film screening

Time: 5pm doors open (bike skill shares will be happening), screening at 6pm.
Ticket price: £5 https://tickets.partyforthepeople.org/events/3334-ovarian-psycos-screening-bike-skill-shares
Film running time: 75 mins

SYNOPSIS:
Ovarian Psycos! are an unapologetic bicycle crew of young Latinas from Eastside Los Angeles. This documentary follows members of the gang as they head out on their monthly ride reclaiming their neighbourhood and creating safer streets for women. At first only attracting a few local women, the Ovarian Psycos have since inspired a crowd of locals to challenge the stereotypical expectations of femininity and be a visible force along the barrios and boulevards of Los Angeles. The film intimately explores the impact of the group’s brand of feminism on neighborhood women and communities as they confront the injustice, racism, and violence in their lives.

See a trailer for the film here: https://vimeo.com/158100366

The screening is ran by 56a Bikespace with the DIY Space for London Film collective. 56a Bikespace is South London’s Do-It-Together, volunteer ran community bike workshop. There will be bike maintenance skillshares in the hour before the film if you want to learn how to true a wheel or get the best puncture repair method.

Shake Appeal #8: Apostille Sarcasm Owner Mat Riviere Tweedle

All proceeds go to Rethink and London Campaign Against Police and State Violence.

APOSTILLE is the solo synth/punk/performance project of Night School Records’ founder and Anxiety/The Lowest Form member Michael Kasparis. Instigated with a credo to “to bridge the gap between audience and performer, to connect through the fog of power structures and post-modernism; to ferment a direct pop music unconcerned with control”, Kasparis is known for intense live performances that switch between the ecstatic and the absurd in a matter of moments.
https://apostille.bandcamp.com

SARCASM is a band of dystopian post-punks that eschew conventional distortion in favour of nonchalant non-violence – all sparse, skeletal shake-downs and locked grooves. Back at Shake Appeal again after appearing at May’s show, this is the London date of their UK tour with Owner. Spitting and snarling, they clatter and march incessantly through a brooding and bleakly modern malaise. “This is the sound of the past, the sound of now and the sound of dissatisfaction.”
Their debut 7” was recently released on Static Shock Records.
https://staticshockrecords.bandcamp.com/album/malarial-bog-ep

OWNER is a great new London punk band, playing Shake Appeal as part of their UK tour with Sarcasm. Members of Score, Primitive Parts and Retrofuture do high-energy over-the-edge dark-feeling power-punk that feels both timeless and urgent. Their first demo tape was recorded by Jonah Falco (Career Suicide/Fucked Up) and is out now!
https://ownerpunk.bandcamp.com/

MAT RIVIERE creates skewed self-aware and distinctly individual pop music that’s minimalistic, atmospheric and uplifting in equal measure. An intently haphazard montage of loops, voices, strings and percussion that give foundation to vulnerable narratives which express “an undeniable sorrowfulness about the past and present moment, punctuated by a feeling of abstract, distant optimism about those exact same things.” (Karl Smith)
https://matriviere.bandcamp.com/

TWEEDLE is a new solo project by Rory Salter (Pink Grip/Nervous Energy tape label) making its debut live performance; a wash of found sounds and experimental tape noise that “is rife with Dictaphone (or more likely downloaded smartphone app) crackle, bedroom-soldered synth buzz, snatches of poetry, gnomic prose or diary entries” (The Quietus).
https://nervousenergyrecords.bandcamp.com/album/tweedle-the-tweedle-demos

Rethink provide expert, accredited advice and information to everyone affected by mental health problems, giving people clear, relevant information on everything from treatment and care to benefits and employment rights. https://www.rethink.org/

London Campaign Against Police and State Violence is a group of voluntary campaigners working to make the Metropolitan Police accountable to local communities for abuses of power; and bring an end to its culture of brutality and racial profiling including the racist use of Stop & Search. https://londonagainstpoliceviolence.wordpress.com/

This month Uniqlo Tate Lates celebrates ‘Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power’, a show dubbed one of the ‘must-see art shows of the year’ by NME.

LINE UP:

Music & Visuals Programmed By NTS Radio

Drawing Black Superheroes
Develop your own Black superheroes with character designer Wayne ‘Hard-Wired’ Riley. Take inspiration from historical figures, and learn how to design superhero characters using comic drawing techniques.

From a Creative Case to an Ecology of Care
What does the term ‘diversity’ mean? Join the debate led by The Ecology of Care team and generate a rolling document problematizing its definition. Interrogate policy and have your words amplified and made into badges.

Writing Black Power
Words were a powerful tool in the Black Power movement, from the poetry of Amiri Baraka to the speeches of Malcolm X. Explore the spoken word of the struggle at Bridget Minamore’s drop-in writing session, and hear pop-up readings throughout the evening.

Keeping It Real
Inspired by Black funk, soul and disco album sleeves, create your own album cover with artists Harold Offeh and Eloise Calandre, and watch your work projected live.

Story Starters!

Got writer’s block? Illustrator Sion Ap Tomos is here to help you get those stories started.

Inspired by the fascinating books on display in our Treasures Gallery, explore storytelling through illustration, conjuring new tales to share and entertain.

We will show you how to make illustrated ‘story starters’ that you can use to create exciting adventures – pictures of characters, places, objects and actions that are used to fire your imagination. One example is a story cube: a dice with numbers instead of pictures. Roll the cube and use whichever picture it lands on to get your story going.

We will explore different kinds of prompts in the workshop and use them to tell each other brilliant tales. What story would you tell if you were shown a picture of a scary forest, a very old frog or a magical trumpet? We can’t wait to find out!

Sion Ap Tomos is an illustrator and educator who loves sharing and listening to stories.

Free | Drop in | Suitable for ages 5 – 11

This event also takes place at 14.00.

Drop in places are limited to 40 people per workshop and allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Live Looping Workshops with Xana and Loraine James

Decolonise Fest present the opportunity for beginners to develop their live looping skills with two of London’s most innovative electronic artists. No experience is necessary and equipment will be provided for you to participate in these workshops.

Tickets for each session cost £3.00 + £0.72 booking. Advanced booking is essential.

Live Looping 1: Beatboxing with Xana, 1.30pm – 3.00pm
Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/live-looping-1-beatboxing-with-xana-tickets-36635379406

Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/live-looping-2-keyboards-and-sampling-with-loraine-james-tickets-36635709393

XANA
Xana composes music using live-looping with beatboxing, vocal harmonising, instrumentation, archived recordings, and using field recordings from Peckham High Street to sounds of space (electromagnetic vibrations) collected by NASA. She intertwines all of this with poetry and improvisational interactive stories. Xana started live-looping as a way to understand the feeling of being fractured, anxious and challenged and how you find ways to piece yourself together, worried about what fits.

Loraine James
Loraine James is an electronic artist and producer. A master at crafting organic textures through inorganic means, she effortlessly blends Electronica and Math rock with whispers of jazz and post-rock all wrapped up in the artist’s key avant-garde aesthetic and sensibility. Loraine crafts truly breathtaking textures from relatively simple means, armed only with a Macbook, a MIDI Keyboard and Novation Launchpad – she transcends any technological constraints to make anything from ambient off-kilter beats to four to the floor vocal-sample driven techno/house.

DSFL Zine Club Initial Meetup

Hey pals, we’re looking to set up a zine club at DIY Space for London!

This would be a free weekly session taking place on (probably) Monday evenings, open to all – no experience necessary.

Initially we’d aim to provide:
*A dedicated space and time set aside a few hours a week for people to work on their own projects.
*A community group for collaborating, skill-sharing, supporting each other, socialising, and sharing zines.
*Once we’ve got the photocopier set up, affordable photocopying and riso on site.

Longer term we might think about:
*Building a small catalogued zine library
*Inviting speakers from activist orgs
*Holding readings

If you want to talk about these ideas, or have more of your own to share, drop in from 7-9 on Wednesday the 16th of August and have a chat with us!

Bring some vegan food to share if you’d like, as this will run alongside the vegan potluck 🙂 https://www.facebook.com/events/106115023414172/

A Short Exhibition About Music Zines

Music zines feature heavily in the Library Zine Collection at London College of Communication, UAL. From the original punk fanzines of the 1970s, through to the indie and alternative zines of the subsequent five decades, zines continue to be vital in providing bands and fans a means to share their music and express their ideas and opinions. The DIY ethos and aesthetic of punk subculture continues to influence and empower today.

Nick Mann’s zine, A Short Fanzine About Rocking (ASFAR), is an influential punk, metal and hardcore music zine which ran for 38 issues from 2001-2014. ASFAR provides a case study which highlights the importance of self-publishing for individuals and subcultural communities. ASFAR had a huge impact on the underground music scene in the UK and beyond, and on its long-term contributors. The exhibits shown will provide examples of Nick’s work and writing, and show the passion and process behind creating a music zine.

Russian Harmonies: Songs of the Steppes and the Cities

Russian songs embrace the whole of the landscape and all of Mother Earth. Lyrical songs call to mind the vastness of Russian topography stretching toward a boundless horizon. Every snowflake and every blade of grass embodies the spirits of nature – and this connection is felt within each song for rituals, holidays, circle dances, laments, weddings, the Russian Art song (The Romance) and lyrical songs… Come and experience Russian harmonies through song. Music lovers of all backgrounds and singing levels are invited, no experience necessary. Learning by ear.

Material Explorations

Makerversity launches ‘Material Explorations’ a two-part event examining experimental new work from material designers, through a series of debates and hands on workshops.

At the core of any making process, materials define the limitations of design, raise questions around social and ethical manufacturing processes and create the primary interface between us and our experienced world. In this inaugural event, Makerversity explores sustainability and takes a closer look at how innovation in materials and processes is disrupting what we make and how.

Makerversity invites you to explore new materials and processes through live installations, hands-on workshops, demonstrations and participatory artworks, led by material designers working at the forefront of innovation. Learn about the potential of human hair waste with Sanne Visser, the future of mined materials in the Anthropocene with Yesenia Thibualt-Picazo and vessel making with reclaimed clay from Thames southbank with Conor Taylor and many more.

Africa Writes 2017

From Friday 30 June to Sunday 2 July we’ll be bringing together over 60 of the most influential voices in contemporary writing from Africa and its diaspora for an exciting summer weekend. Highlighting the themes of language, archives, ownership amongst many others, Africa Writes brings you a weekend packed with ideas and inspiration.

Headline events

We’re kicking off with the R.A.P. (Rhythm And Poetry) party on the evening of Friday 30th June. This evening of hip-hop inspired poems and songs hosted by Inua Ellams and Theresa Lola will feature some remarkable poetic talents, including Malika Booker, Kei Miller, Amaal Said, Yomi Sode and more. Dj Sid Mercutio will be on the decks spinning a mix of afrobeat, funk and afro-house tunes.

On Saturday evening Mara Menzies and Maimouna Jallow will delight us with a story- telling night of dreams and deception through performance adaptations of the written word. And on Sunday our headliner will be the prolific Congolese writer and academic Alain Mabanckou.

The literary ambassador of Congolese sapologie, Alain Mabanckou captivates readers and critics with his rhythmic prose exploring the streets of Congo-Brazaville and the boulevards of Paris. His latest novel, Black Moses, was shortlisted for the Prix Goncourt and long-listed for this year’s Man Booker International Prize. Mabanckou will reflect on his journey as a writer and the politics of language and style. Tickets for these events are already selling fast so make sure to book early!

Panel discussions

We look at how publishers in Africa are reaching communities of readers, how writers are making living literary connections across different African languages with Jalada Africa, and how hidden histories in the museums and libraries of London can be uncovered by writers.

Moments of celebration and African literary joy are to be found throughout the festival: we will delve into the archives of the renowned Nigerian writer Buchi Emecheta, discovering photographs, manuscripts and a remarkable personal history of a beloved literary icon, and will come together to discuss her work in the session: African Books to Inspire: Buchi Emecheta Book Club.

Following the annual tradition, you’ll have the chance to meet the shortlisted writers for this year’s Caine Prize for African Writing: Lesley Nneka Arimah (Nigeria), Chikodili Emelumadu (Nigeria), Bushra al-Fadil (Sudan), Arinze Ifeakandu (Nigeria) and Magogodi oaMphela Makhene (South Africa).

Alex Reads, Reckless Rai and Derek W from Mostly Lit – the popular podcast at the intersection of literature, millennial wellness and black pop-culture – will be hosting a live show on ‘Writing Blackness’. The trio will reflect on their own personal experiences and responses to reading black characters as depicted in African and Black British fiction.

Workshops and Roundtables

We uncover the history of the East African kanga textile with an exhibition and sharing session; hear stories about Krio heritage and culture of Sierra Leone, and explore the photographic archive in Black Chronicles: The Missing Chapter. We’ll be discussing the processes and politics and translation, and looking at the profusion of literary events and festivals taking place across the continent.

Budding writers are invited to pitch their work to the industry experts in our lively Meet the Publishers event, and places are also open for a special self-editing masterclass with Ellah Allfrey. On Saturday 1 July, all the family are invited for the free and fun Magic of Storytelling workshops with Mara Menzies.

Launch events

Africa Writes 2017 book and poetry collection launches include the new non-fiction work by Helon Habila – The Chibok Girls; two exciting debut novels – When We Speak of Nothing by Olumide Popoola; No Place to Call Home by JJ Bola; and two poetry collections – Kumukunda by Kayo Chingonyi and Kingdom of Gravity by Nick Makoha.

An Introduction to Sámi Joik (2 Part Course)

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be teaching a short course on Sámi joik at the SOAS Music Summer School this June! Join me if you can to explore this beautiful vocal tradition from Europe’s most northerly indigenous people.

The Sámi people live across the borders of northern Scandinavia, Finland, and throughout the Kola Peninsula of north-western Russia. Joik is their characteristic vocal tradition, consisting of units of sound that have traditionally been used to invoke a person, animal, place, or experience. Formerly practiced by Sámi shamans in order to facilitate communication with the spirit world, joik continues to engage with the sacred on an essential level; one does not joik ‘about’ something; one simply ‘joiks it’.

On this two-part course, I’ll take you on a journey through joik, encompassing both its key musical and philosophical components.

Projects Review 2017 offers an overview of the AA’s 2016/17 academic year. On display are hundreds of drawings, models, installations and photographs from all the AA’s units, courses and departments, documenting the diversity and experimental nature of the AA School.

At the AA architecture is pursued as a form of cultural knowledge across year-long design projects and portfolios.

Dance For Refuge x V&A

In partnership with the V&A we’re delighted to present an evening of music in the V&A’s Grand Entrance, as part of their Refugee Week Programme.

We’ve invited three brilliant DJs down for the evening, who we’ll be announcing over the coming weeks.

Line up:

~ Mr Bongo

Mr Bongo began their journey in Venezuela 30 years ago – filling suitcases with amazing latin records to bring back to Europe. And it has continued ever since; private warehouse visits in the US, dusty back street basements in South America, houses and garages in Africa, and lesser-known spots in Europe and Asia. Mr Bongo bring eclectic and unexpected Brazilian, Latin, African, Jazz, Soul, Reggae and Psychedelic flavours to the dance-floor with a seemingly bottomless stock of weird and wonderful selections.

~ Zipporah

Zipprah (Mia Zur-Szpiro) is Editor and Head of Film for the UK music platform, Stamp The Wax. Mia unearths cutting-edge musical talents and scenes from all around the world, with her unique films, features and record digging. From Nairobi hip-hop, Vancouver house, Palestinian bass, Melbourne soul, Bristolian Dub, Japanese Jazz, Israeli techno and more, there is no sound and place Mia isn’t interested in. Mia uses music and documentary film to cross borders and start conversations, originally from London, Mia is now based in Tel Aviv, where she is working closely with local talents, making several films and diving into the Middle East’s music scene; as heard in her regular radio shows for Stamp The Wax and takeovers on Worldwide FM.

~ Dego (2000Black)

As the head of the enigmatic 2000BLACK imprint and revered as one of London’s most important musical visionaries, Dego continues to pioneer forward-thinking soulful music across all tempos and is never restrained by genre, only influenced by quality.

Recognized as an award-winner, tastemaker, songwriter, international DJ and genre defying music producer, Dego focuses on generating and performing soulful sounds that often forge into the unknown territories of black music. Making genre guidelines obsolete, Dego has subsequently heavily influenced the evolutionary course of underground electronica and the electro-soul sound.

Help Refugees at the V&A: Music & Performance in the Globe

Help Refugees will bring musicians, artists & poets from across the world together to perform at the V&A. It’s a great opportunity to share a positive message about integration; celebrating the contribution of refugees both within the creative industries and our wider society.

Performers include:

Abdul, and Afghan refugee who has played the Oud since he was a young boy. After making the journey to the UK, Abdul has performed at the Migration Museum, and we’re incredibly gifted to have him join us to play music from his home country.

Bill Bingham and David Fielder will perform a speech by William Shakespeare from the late-16th/early-17th Century play ‘Sir Thomas More’ in response to a huge anti-immigration riot in 1517 aimed at the Dutch, Flemish and other foreigners, or “strangers” as they were called.

Child of Chief is a son of political refugees who relocated to the UK in the late 90s where he was pushed into percussion and later found his place with the guitar, keys & singing. His father was a musician who was very influential to him and the passing of his father when Child of Chief was a child is a big source of the painful stories told in the music.

SOAS World Music Summer School



Afro-Brazilian Berimbau

Now for the 15th year running, SOAS is proud to offer an exciting summer school of world music. This summer once again we offer an exciting and varied programme with something for everyone.

The berimbau (music bow) is one of the oldest instruments known to humankind; a simple instrument made of a wooden bow, a gourd and a string, and a stick to strike against the string to produce the distinctive deep resonant sound. In this course we are going to explore the soundscapes of the African diaspora via the berimbau, the music bow imported to Brazil via the slave trade, best known for its use in the capoeira martial arts dance.

The sessions will be relaxed and hands-on and will focus mainly on the music of capoeira. Small doses of African history and Portuguese language will be also included in the sessions. The berimbao is for everyone – come and play! With Cesar Cuyami Mesari

Elements of Rhythm: Monday 19th – Friday 23rd June, 2017

Now for the 15th year running, SOAS is proud to offer an exciting summer school of world music. This summer once again we offer an exciting and varied programme with something for everyone.

This workshop is for anyone interested in understanding essential concepts and devices of rhythm found in musical styles from around the world. Improve your sense of rhythm and structure, apply the rhythms and patterns in your own instrument or use the ideas as a tool in composition and teaching. We will look at elements like rhythmic compositions, shapes and phrases in South Indian music, long rhythmic cycles from Ottoman music, multi-layered grooves from Brazil and Morocco, and how to play Sandansko Horo in 22/8. We will also explore rhythm as a compositional tool inspired by world music styles (timeline, layering, polyrhythms, cross rhythms, moving bass, and more). For intermediate/experienced players of any instrument. Percussion instruments will be provided, or bring your own – all welcome!

Now for the 15th year running, SOAS is proud to offer an exciting summer school of world music. This summer once again we offer an exciting and varied programme with something for everyone.

Avaluable tool for all singers and musicians, music andvoice teachers and group facilitators. Aimed at anybody willing to experience group singing and sharing, who want to expand their musicianship and creativity, and discover melodic and rhythmic patterns from diverse musical traditions that can be applied to enhance their own musical language, through a process of sharing and vocal experimentation.

Sylvia Hallett / Phil Durrant / Hendrickse-Mudd-Thompson

Sylvia Hallett – solo
Phil Durrant – solo
Jan Hendrickse / Tom Mudd / Bill Thompson – trio

______________
Sylvia Hallett
is a multi-instrumentalist and composer moving between violin, Norwegian Hardanger fiddle, saw, accordion, electronics and found objects. She currently plays with The London Improvisers Orchestra and h2dance company, where she is resident composer. Recent collaborators have included Lol Coxhill, Evan Parker, David Toop, Jah Wobble, Anna Homler, LaXula, Opera North, Wonderful Beast, Miranda Tufnell, Eva Karczag, and The Royal Shakespeare Company. She performs internationally as a solo improviser, having released three solo albums, and pops up regularly on the soundtrack of BBC TV’s Silent Witness. In July 2015 she was commissioned by the Livio Felluga Wine Company to create and perform a solo site-specific work on a hill in an Italian vineyard.
http://sylviahallett.co.uk

______________
Phil Durrant
Born near London in 1957, Phil Durrant is an improviser/composer/sound artist who has devised his own virtual performance instruments using Reaktor. Recently, he has been performing solo, duo (with Phil Maguire) and trio concerts (with Mark Wastell and Richard Sanderson), using an analogue/digital modular synthesizer system.

As a violinist (and member of the Butcher/Russell/Durrant trio), he was one of the key exponents of the “group voice approach” style of improvised music. In the late 90s, his trio with Radu Malfatti and Thomas Lehn represented a shift to a more “reductionist” approach.

Durrant’s exploration in the use of live electronics to expand the timbre of the violin, evolved into the creation and building of self-made virtual instruments. His live sampling/treatments duo with John Butcher and his work MIMEO, saw Durrant move from the use of hardware to the use of software in live situations. He has always been keen to transfer the flexibility of playing an acoustic instrument, into his laptop performances.

Jan Hendrickse
is a composer, improvising musician and artist. His work moves between performance, installation and composition. He has recently been developing a large-scale collaborative work with Choreographer Saffy Setohy. He is currently undertaking a PhD in Composition at the University of Kent, School of Music & Fine Art.
http://janhendrickse.com

Tom Mudd
is a musician, researcher and programmer interested in the role of software in musical processes and practices. Recent work has focused on explorations of new synthesis processes, based largely around physical and pseudo-physical models of acoustic systems.
http://tommudd.co.uk

Bill Thompson
is a sound artist and composer. His installations and performances make extensive use of found objects, field recordings, repurposed electronics and digital media. Although originally trained as a guitarist, he primarily performs with live electronics and laptop. In this trio, he combines these approaches with a slight return via recent explorations of the Moog guitar. For more information please visit: http://billthompson.org

Art. Class. War – Performance Party!

As the economic crisis lingers social class divisions have become once again relevant to political discourse. Globalization, which once promised unbound freedoms has become a restrictive force as finance capitalism, punitive military actions and commodity extraction converge in the secretive warfare of the 21st Century (as seen in Syria and Ukraine), leading to mass migration and a new virulent racism across Europe.

Art is entwined with both class division and warfare as it provides the tools to promote the interests of the capitalist class via signs which mesmerise, confuse and pacify. Sometimes these signs, like flags and royal seals, are put directly to the service of power. At other times art is used to provide a cultural distraction for the elite, who lose themselves in the irony and glamour of the biennale or art fair.

For this reason, art can only challenge the injustices of class and war if it first engages in its own internal war of class. We need to address unfair working and appointment practices, low or no wages, workplace discrimination by gender, race and sexuality as well as sexual harassment.

Art. Class. War aims to place the art world for one evening firmly at the centre of these issues involving the public in a night of music and performance, aiming above all to ask what role art has to play in the nexus of class and war.Artists: Larry Achiampong, Shiraz Bayjoo, Andrew Cooper, Chto Delat?, Graham Hudson, League of Art Legends (Electronica and VJ set, Mike Watson and Simone Bertugno), Margoo, Colin Lindsay, Mark McGowan, Fiamma Montezemolo, Robert Pettena.

This event is part of the Antiuniversity Now festival 10-16 June 2017 See the full programme on www.antiuniversity.org. @antiuniversityofeastlondon

Art. Class. War is an initiative of The Rome Process, an independent curatorial group founded by Mike Watson, which aims at addressing micro and macro level political issues via performance. The Rome Process is based in Rome.

Universal basic income – duck or rabbit? (Antiuniversity Now)

Free entry. BOOK HERE > https://tinyurl.com/ycvfdnlc

Universal Basic Income is on trial and You are hereby invited to jury duty.

The idea of a universal basic income has recently resurfaced, with several pilots in countries such as Finland, India and Namibia gathering global attention. What does the idea of a basic income mean to you? Whether you’re a proponent or opponent, whether you know nothing about it or have been following it through its many guises, we invite you to take this time to examine your gut reaction, in the context of an open discussion with a twist.

What we propose is a 12 Angry Men format, in which everyone around the table must judge for themselves and join the process of reaching a consensus.

This process will also allow for an exploration of the jury group dynamics. We will explore how we enter a debate comfortably. Who is the chair of this meeting? What does it take to feel heard? And who listens? Where are we standing (literally) and how does the world look from our point of view? What do we need to change? We cannot leave until we collectively tame the pink elephant in the room.

CANCELLED:lGuided walk in Fitzrovia (part of AntiUniversity Now)

THIS WALK HAS BEEN CANCELLED. A DIFFERENT WALK IN THE WEST END IS BEING OFFERED
Fitzrovia walk: One of EU’s glitziest zones w/ ‘worst living quality in UK’ T
Guides: Ranjan and Tim
There are still narrow passages, cul-de-sacs and mews which point to its pre-modernist past; it was mostly developed piecemeal by minor landowners in the 18th eg Charles FitzRoy; many Fitzrovian places are named after his family, likewise and the Devonshires/Portlands.
And that footprint has given the area its distinctive character even 3 centuries later. Plus ca change…
19th C Fitzrovia like Soho was an area suitable mainly for poor immigrants. Hence revolutionary politics fermented: Marx, Lenin and Trotsky knew it; violent émigré anarchists plotted here. The bohemian scene (1920s-1940s) were located here with such luminaries as Dylan Thomas, Augustus John and Aleister Crowley hanging out at e.g. the Fitzroy Tavern;
One of the themes of the walk will be contradictions between appearances and underlying reality: e.g. Victoria Line built mostly for Civil Defence not public transport purposes.
This century it’s an area known for fashion industry, TV content providers, art galleries and edgy cutting-edge firms in entertainment sector. Nowadays post-modernist architectural icons for the Age of Spectacle can be noted too.

Pure Gold Presents: Voices of Home

Multi-speaker sound and audiovisual installations exploring the relationship between the voice and home. In one of the final events of Pure Gold, this event will be showcasing two projects that combine interviews, field recordings and visuals.

………………………………………………………………………………………………
Never Never Land. By Joy Stacey and Julia Brown
This audiovisual work, that has already been installed at the Barbican and St James Hatcham Church showcases an electronic soundtrack combined with prominent visuals of cultural identity of Northern Ireland. Listen to manipulated voices and stories from women who have grown up in a male dominated, divided and traumatised political environment.

A film which immerses you into the celebrations on the 11th and 12th of July, of bonfires, bands, flags and theatrical costume. Exploring stereotypes of Catholic and Protestant, territory and divided communities.

……………………………………………………………………………………………….
Home, a sound exploration. By Sam Bland
In a time of deep austerity, lack of affordable housing and a refugee ‘crises’, home becomes an ever more political and pressing issue in our society.

This multi-speaker sound installation, explores the connections and distinctions of people’s relationships to the home and shelter. The piece combines multiple interviews with recordings and aims to draw links between the personal qualities of the voice and the concept of home.

…………………………………………………………………………………………….

The installations will be in RHB 167 in the Music department and each piece will run approx twice an hour consecutively.

Antiuniversity Now 2017: Stories of Intellectual Liberation

****FREE EVENT****

This talk is part of Antiuniversity 2017. To see more, click here: http://antiuniversity.org

Jacques Ranciere is a French intellectual who wrote about Jacotot, a man who lived in C19th France. Jacotot posited that everybody had equal intelligence, and this could be affirmed through the method of ‘universal teaching’. Ranciere explores this theory in depth in his book ‘The Ignorant Schoolmaster’. We read this book and believe we can learn from it, especially in times when education is becoming ever more marketised, privatised and encroached upon by the salarial capitalist system.

In this workshop we will be looking at Ranciere’s ‘The Ignorant Schoolmaster’ in order to learn about his theory of liberated and emancipated education. We’ll also be discussing the role of education in society, and how we might apply Ranciere’s ideas in our own communities.

Imprefect VR Workshop

Virtual Reality is making big headlines and many believe that it will finally become a significant medium. With all the current excitement around VR, an important question comes up: who will be the creators, who the consumers of this technology?
While big tech companies are grabbing the space, Imperfect VR is based on the fundamental belief that everyone can build their own virtual reality.
In this workshop we will create a small, quirky VR experience with A-Frame and Google Cardboard. A-Frame is a beginner-friendly but capable open source VR framework based on web technology. Cardboard headsets allow us to use our smartphones as VR devices.
To take part, you need to bring a laptop and a (recent) smartphone. You do not need to have experience in computer programming. I will go through the absolute basics and will support advanced participants realizing their ideas in VR. After the workshop everyone should have a good understanding how to create their own virtual world in a few lines of code. We will also discuss politics of VR and perception (e.g. John Berger and James Elkins) and watch [a little bit of Žižek](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuG8ElyirC0).
We are not aiming for a perfect reality but will have fun in the virtual.
Imperfect VR is inspired by and built upon ideas of Imperfect Cinema. Imperfect VR workshops have been given at Electromagnetic Field, Plymouth University, Royal College of Art and Space Studios London.

Monster Politics: Austerity, Hegemony & Being Out of Place

Kirsten Forkert and Debra Benita Shaw
This session is about monsters and how they are made. The politics of austerity produces monstrous others who stand as scapegoats for the effects of reduced public spending; refugees are conflated with monstrous immigrants so as to be denied human rights; young black men are characterised as monsters so as to justify police brutality; monsters threaten our children and the spectre of the monstrous crowd is conjured in the service of law and order.

Kirsten and Debra will lead a discussion about austerity, normality and the representation of monsters in popular media. Are we all potentially monsters? Or are some of us more monstrous than others? Is it possible to claim a position of monstrosity, of being ‘out of place’ as the basis for a revitalised left-popular politics?

Kirsten Forkert and Debra Benita Shaw are academics and activists. Their latest books (to be published later this year) both deal, in various ways, with monster politics, new social movements, responses to austerity and the right to the city.
The event is co-sponsored by Doomed Gallery and the Centre for Cultural Studies Research at the University of East London

Humane Regeneration at AntiUniversity 2017

We all know the pattern. We’ve seen it before. We’ve seen it happen in Soho. In Dumbo. In Hoxton. In Shoreditch. Artists and creatives and pioneering people move into a cheap, troubled place and make it vibrant, exciting or just plain interesting. Then as sure as anything, along come developers who bring their cash and make lots of money fast and bring new people into the area. You know how this story ends. The original community and the artists are moved on to start again somewhere else.
What if it was not like that?
What if we could rethink how regeneration worked?
What if we experienced a more humane form of regeneration, if that is at all possible?

This workshop will explore what Humane Regeneration might look and feel and act like.

Join PLOT for an interactive workshop designing materials for an alternative future. We’ll bring the tools and methods. Bring your observations of what you see now. This is a hands on active session – we will be chewing over ideas and physically making things. Be prepared to get your sleeves rolled up, bring your imagination as well as your inspiration.

PLOT use workshops and extensive prototyping approaches to explore the future in different forms: creative business strategy, innovations, propositions, products, services, and new ways of working together. We design and facilitate work with our clients from commercial and social sectors, because we know that our work is so much more productive when we work with people, rather than for them.

Uncomfortable Art Tours – Tate Britain – Antiuniversity 2017

Uncomfortable Art Tours are exactly what they sound like.
In a country that’s repeatedly failed to come to terms with its colonial past, led by politicians who seem to think the past is the future, we seek to resist triumphalist nostalgia with art history.
Our tours will focus on how major institutions like the National Gallery and Tate Britain came into being against a backdrop of imperialism. In each one hour tour, we’ll unravel the role colonialism played in shaping and funding these collections, looking at the broader material history of celebrated works. The history of British art is also the history of empire and genocide, written by collectors who traded in landscapes and lives.
There are bloody handprints on the gallery walls, and the bodies of slaves and colonised peoples in the foundations.

This tour is one of a series of four:
12.6.17 and 13.6.17, 4.30-5.30pm – National Gallery, Trafalgar Square
14.6.17 and 15.6.17, 4.30-5.30pm – Tate Britain, Millbank

Antiuniversity: SHUT DOWN DSEI – Stop The Arms Fair

This coming September, the international weapons industry plans to set-up shop in London at a huge arms fair: DSEI. The weapons sold here fuel the death, destruction and injustice perpetrated by militaries, police forces, and at borders around the world. Because war, repression and injustice start here, let’s stop them here.

A huge week of action is planned to stop the set-up of London’s DSEI arms fair between 4-11 September 2017. Come to this workshop to hear more about the resistance to the DSEI arms fair and learn how to turn creative action ideas into reality. Together, we can create an inspiring and effective week of action to shut down DSEI.

Antiuniversity Now: Common Ground

Is the public museum a real common space? What do public and community have in common? What does ‘common’ actually mean when we talk about a space that is equally inclusive and diverse? Does my identity matter to the public museum?
Many of us are already working around these questions and we want to meet many more. Join us for a public discussion about community spaces for dialogue and our collective representation in the public museum. You will participate in the discussion, trying to find answers or creating new possible questions.

We are joining forces with Antiuniversity Now http://www.antiuniversity.org/ and Grow Elephant https://www.growelephant.org/ for the first time and would love you to be involved in a research-led participatory intervention at this ephemeral common ground. Grow Elephant is a community garden and cafe placed in between the hoardings of the infamous redevelopment site on Old Kent Road, in Elephant and Castle. The garden will have to relocate at the end of the summer when the construction works will start in the space.

Join the garden discussion!

Un-Mapping Futures is working from the margins of different cultural institution and we are particularly interested in peripheral practices aimed to solve the public/institution dichotomy to reclaim such an ambiguous territory. The event will take the form of a panel discussion and workshop where each attendee has a say. No stage, no mic and, weather permitting, no roof!

You will be sharing ideas, opinions and experiences with fellow museum practicioners, art educators, community artists and engagers at this special venue:

On Having a Head – An Antiuniversity event

What does it mean to be alive and awake? Are you conscious of reading these words?

How about now?

Now?

This session will offer an introduction to some ideas around consciousness. What it is, how it is described by the various branches of science, and how these descriptions differ from how those found in spiritual practices. A central theme will be an exploration of the relationship between consciousness and the body.

We will begin with a presentation outlining some of the current thinking around this topic and will also be trying out exercises and having discussions to better enable shared understandings to develop.

Antiuniversity 2017: Tapping Into The City Group Walk

Come and share a different view of the city streets – looking at the area surrounding the site of the original Antiuniversity of London together in this group walk/live art piece.

Meet at 6.30pm outside 49 Rivington St, London EC2A 3QB (at the junction with Charlotte Road).

No need for expertise, to practice or perform: we will use collective embodied learning – simply exploring and responding to our surroundings and each other by moving as one through the city space and listening to its sound and the sound of our feet.

I’ll explain the piece and then we’ll walk together for an hour or so, finishing at a nearby pub.

Ideally we’ll wear shoes with pennies stuck to the soles. Bring some pennies for your shoes, I’ll also have some extras. (If you don’t want to customise your shoes that’s fine, just wear a comfortable pair that you think may make a bit of a sound.)

Free, all welcome! Book your free space via eventbrite, here – http://bit.ly/2pqgRxX

Uncomfortable Art Tours – National Gallery – Antiuniversity 2017

Uncomfortable Art Tours are exactly what they sound like.
In a country that’s repeatedly failed to come to terms with its colonial past, led by politicians who seem to think the past is the future, we seek to resist triumphalist nostalgia with art history.
Our tours will focus on how major institutions like the National Gallery and Tate Britain came into being against a backdrop of imperialism. In each one hour tour, we’ll unravel the role colonialism played in shaping and funding these collections, looking at the broader material history of celebrated works. The history of British art is also the history of empire and genocide, written by collectors who traded in landscapes and lives.
There are bloody handprints on the gallery walls, and the bodies of slaves and colonised peoples in the foundations.

This tour is one of a series of four:
12.6.17 and 13.6.17, 4.30-5.30pm – National Gallery, Trafalgar Square
14.6.17 and 15.6.17, 4.30-5.30pm – Tate Britain, Millbank

Reclaiming the Hides – a radical bird walk (Antiuniversity 2017)

*UPDATE: this event is now fully booked (and strictly ticket-holder only). You can still add your names to a waitlist via the ticket link. And please give the Facebook Page a like to find out about more walks in the future: https://www.facebook.com/whosehides*

Part of Antiuniversity Now 2017. This event is FREE but you must order tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/reclaim-the-hides-a-radical-birdwalk-antiuniversity-2017-tickets-34178005334

This talk will follow the form of a guided bird walk around Haggerston Park. However, instead of identifying as many species as possible or hunting down a migrating rarity, the objective will be to explore the radical examples set by birds, and to reframe birdwatching as an act that, while not revolutionary in itself, is one rich in reward for anyone who dreams or fights for a different world.

For all recorded history people have projected their hopes, fears and existential rubbish onto birds, and sought to crowbar out of them a profound understanding of the human world. As flawed an approach as this is, the premise of this walk/talk is that revolutionaries, radicals, utopians and truck-burners can do the same.

The precise content of the walk will be based (very) loosely on the wildlife we encounter, but it will more than likely include references to class war, the disestablishment of nation states, polyamory, Peter Kropotkin, Silver Mt Zion and direct action tactics. And as the walk/talk will be firmly participatory, I would welcome others’ contributions/interjections, too.

Knowledge of British breeding birds is not required. To be honest, I’d prefer you forget any you have as it will probably interfere with my own half-baked hypothesising.

Oh, and I cannot guarantee that the content will be what most would consider suitable for children.

Psycho-coercion & Psycho-resistance Antiuniversity 2017

An event to explore and build resistance to the increasing use of psychology to coerce and compel us through moral mantras like the ‘work cure’ and the use of psychometric tests, mood monitoring and mindfulness.

Employment is now being positioned as a health outcome and psychological tools are being harnessed to discipline and punish welfare claimants. Work wellbeing initiatives now draw on positive psychology to monitor and govern emotions in the workplace and extract greater productivity.

This event will discuss what fighting psycho-coercion means and what forms this can take. It will encourage the questioning of the use of and the nature of these tools. Are they inherently useful but have been misused and distorted and can they be reclaimed or re-purposed?

Featuring talk and discussion from academics and activists working to question psycho-coercion. As well as a screening of Harry Giles’ Everything I bought and how it made me feel (https://harrygiles.org/portfolio/everything-i-bought-and-how-it-made-me-feel/): “A show-and-tell about consumerism and anxiety, a project to weaponize the quantified self & an attempt to mine the nature of daily anxiety.”

PureGold presents: Women who wrote songs

This free concert will feature music by political reformer Caroline Sheridan Norton in the 1830s to Irish composer and teacher Dorothy Parke, just over a century later.

Patricia Hammond (mezzo) and Andrea Kmecova (piano) commemorate the centenary of women getting the vote with a new book and CD called “Women who wrote songs”, published by Valley Press.

Few forms of music have been so marginalised and ridiculed as the so-called domestic, or parlour Song. But in the 19th and early 20th century, barred from positions at Universities, Symphony Orchestras and Cathedrals, creative women turned to the simple song at the piano as the most natural means of musical expression. And the results were so successful that this lowly form allowed women to earn a living, and by creating songs to be performed at the home, they were able to pay for homes of their own.

London-based mezzo Patricia Hammond and and pianist Andrea Kmecova are working on a project to celebrate the stories and songs of these women. This recital will include songs by
-Caroline Sheridan Norton, political campaigner instrumental in obtaining legal rights for married and divorced women
-Charlotte Alington Barnard, best-selling ballad composer of the 1860s who pioneered the “Royalty System”
-Carrie Jacobs-Bond, American widow who published her own songs and sold millions, saving herself and her son from poverty
-May Brahe, whose songs represented safety and security for millions in the midst of the Great Depression
-Amanda Aldridge, born in Norwood of an African-American father, who was one of the first students to be given a scholarship to the Royal College of Music

And many others. The stories are amazing, but the songs will stay in your head for days.

OperaGold presents: Purcell and Puccini

As part of the Music Department’s PureGold season, we present fully staged versions Purcell’s “Dido and Aeneas” and Puccini’s “Suor Angelica” in this opera double bill.

Composed by one of England’s greatest composers, Henry Purcell, with text by Nahum Tate, this update of the epic poem The Aeneid, traces the adventures of a hero, Aeneas, and what happened when he visited North Africa and fell in love with the beautiful Dido, Queen, of Carthage. Interestingly, Purcell and Tate, performed a profound update on this story when they turned it into an opera in 1689. Their version emphasised Dido’s point of view rather than Aeneas’s. The result is that Vergil’s story about civic duty and self-negation turns into a very human story about how it feels to be heartlessly abandoned by one’s significant other. The teenage girls who performed Dido and Aeneas in 1689, likely found this updated plot line more relatable – and maybe modern audiences do, too.
Additional text: Emma Riggle

SUOR ANGELICA is a unique one-act opera containing moments of harrowing drama and unequalled redemptive beauty. Beware — it can rip you to shreds.

The story takes place in a convent over one day, intensifying as it unravels. At the opera’s opening, our main character Sister Angelica claims, during a discussion among the nuns, to have no desires, but she lies. She has a hidden, burning desire — to see her illegitimate son that was taken from her seven years ago, and whom she has thought of every day.

So when her unforgiving aunt, the Princess, pays a visit to the convent and is forced to tell Angelica that her son tragically died two years previously, she is plunged into suicidal delirium. She hears her son calling to her — she must go to meet him… but in taking her own life, she is committing a sin. Will she be redeemed, re-united, and finally accepted for who she is?
Text: Opera North – Opera in a Nutshell

Directed by John Wilkie, and conducted by John Andrews and Valeria Racco, our end of year production showcases the talents of vocal students in the department.

Keynote Presentation Abstract
Tina K. Ramnarine: Musical and Botanical Activism
This paper explores the role played by music in promoting ecological awareness in a botanical context. It focuses on several recent musical installations in the world heritage site of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. Today, the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew is an international centre of conservation ecology, identified by UNESCO as a site of ‘Outstanding Universal Value’. A museum in the Gardens features exhibits on musical instruments. Music festivals are regularly hosted in the Gardens. Both the museum exhibits and the festival performances reveal, in different ways, how this site has been part of Britain’s scientific, trading and imperial histories since the 18th century. The Gardens also house extensive plant collections and pioneer developments in botanical science, which are brought into the domain of public knowledge through, in part, musical installations. The paper draws on biopolitical thought to analyse different examples and frame them in terms of botanical activism.

Tina K. Ramnarine is a musician, anthropologist and global cultural explorer. She has undertaken field research across the Nordic countries, the Caribbean, India and Indonesia. Publications include the books Creating Their Own Space: The Development of an Indian-Caribbean Musical Tradition (2001), Ilmatar’s Inspirations: Nationalism, Globalization, and the Changing Soundscapes of Finnish Folk Music (2003), Beautiful Cosmos: Performance and Belonging in the Caribbean Diaspora (2007), and an edited volume Musical Performance in the Diaspora (2007). She is Professor in Music at RHUL.

SOAS Centenary Event: Youth, Cinema and War in Iran

Venue: Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre, SOAS University of London

Admission Free – All Welcome (no registration required)

SOAS Centenary Event : Youth, Cinema and War in Iran – #SOAS100

To celebrate the SOAS Centenary the Centre for Iranian Studies is pleased to announce a special day of Iranian film. Iranian cinema has been making its mark on the international scene for over two decades. The majority of Iran’s award winning filmmakers were in their youth during the Iranian revolution of 1979 and the Iran/ Iraq war (1980-87); both remarkably defining moments for Iranian history, identity and creatively. This day explores themes of youth, cinema and war in Iran.

We begin with a selection of short films made by IYCS and involving students at Iranian film institutes (compiled by Majid Barzegar and Roya Arab). This is followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A with Shahin Parvizi (former IYCS student) who will talk about his experiences learning film making in Iran, chaired by Roya Arab.

In the second half of the day we have a screening of The Night Bus (Pourahmad, 2007), before Kaveh Abbasian (specialising in ‘Sacred defence’ films) provides us with an overview of films and documentaries made about the Iran /Iraq war, chaired by Saeed Zeydabadi-Nejad, SOAS.

The day of film screenings also includes the SOAS Centenary Event: Iran Book Fair, which will be taking place in the Brunei Suite.

**All films are in Persian with English subtitles**

1.00-2.30pm Short Film Screenings and Discussion:

Lachak (The Scarf) Dir Haideh Moradi (2013), 21 min. A girl loses her new scarf, we look on as she follows the garment through beautiful Iranian natural and village scenes.

Man Ghadeemi Hastam (The Outsider) Dirs Adel Tabrizi & Iran Entezami (2014), 19 min. A literature teacher with high hopes arrives for his first day at university and has them dashed by unruly pupils.

Raha (Released) Dirs Amir Parsamehr & Peiman Naimi (2011), 29 min. A touching film which shows us the Iran/Iraq war through a child’s eye.

Gardesh (Turnabout) Dir Hamed Rajabi (2009), 17 min. A student wonders around college looking for his friends, none of whom he can find, before leaving his good bye message on the school wall.

2.30-3pm Shahin Parvizi (Filmmaker and PhD student) in discussion with Roya Arab (Musician, archaeologist, curator and PhD candidate) followed by Q&A.

3.00-3.50pm Break: Persian tea and biscuits in the Brunei Suite

“Sacred Defence’ Film Genre, Screening and Discussion

3.50-4.00pm Dr Hassan Hakimian (Director of LMEI): welcome and greetings; Roya Arab introduces the afternoon and Kiumars Pourahmad’s specially recorded message.

4.00-5.30pm Otobus-e Shab (The Night Bus) Dir Kiumars Pourahmad (2007), 90 min. is a reflective nuanced look at the eight year war between Iran and Iraq. Made in 2007, the film is set on a bus transporting Iraqi war prisoners on a twenty four hour journey. Two young soldiers and an elderly bus driver is all that stands between the captured soldiers and freedom. Shot in black and white, Mehdi Jafari went on to win an award in Iran for his highly atmospheric cinematography. The music, dialogue and scenes provide an antithesis to the inhumanity of war through the shared humanity of the combatants.

5.30-6.00pm Kaveh Abbasian (filmmaker, visiting lecturer and PhD student) in discussion with Saeed Zeydabadi-Nejad (lecturer and academic author) followed by Q&A.

Eyal Weizman in Conversation with John Palmesino

Evening lecture and book launch to be held in the lecture hall at Architectural Association School of Architecture.

On the occasion of the launch of this new title by Eyal Weizman, “Forensic Architecture: Violence at the Threshold of Detectability”, Weizman will be joined by John Palmesino to discuss the different ways in which architecture could become an investigative practice.

This event is free and open to all!

About the book:

Forensic Architecture provides crucial evidence for international courts and works with a wide range of activist groups, NGOs, Amnesty International, and the UN. Beyond shedding new light on human rights violations and state crimes across the globe, Forensic Architecture has also created a new form of investigative practice that bears its name. The group uses architecture as an optical device to investigate armed conflicts and environmental destruction, as well as to cross-reference a variety of evidence sources, such as new media, remote sensing, material analysis, witness testimony, and crowd sourcing. In this book, Eyal Weizman, the group’s founder, provides, for the first time, an in-depth introduction to the history, practice, assumptions, potentials, and double binds of this practice. Weizman’s Forensic Architecture, stunning and shocking in its critical narrative, powerful images, and daring investigations, presents a new form of public truth, technologically, architecturally, and aesthetically produced. The practice calls for a transformative politics in which architecture as a field of knowledge and a mode of interpretation exposes and confronts ever-new forms of state violence and secrecy.

Guardian Live: Ann Patchett

Join award-winning author Ann Patchett for a discussion of her latest novel, Commonwealth.

An ambitious story about marriage, divorce and complex family relationships spanning 50 years, Commonwealth can be read as the story of America, and of shared and lost history. For a brief escape from his tedious marriage and children, Bert Cousins gatecrashes Franny Keating’s christening party. Before the end of the night, he has kissed Franny’s mother, setting in motion the dissolution of two marriages and intertwining the fates of the two families forever. When, in her 20’s, Franny begins an affair with an eminent writer and tells him about her family, the story of her siblings is no longer hers to control. ‘Patchett sucker-punches you, but leaves you feeling you had it coming – whether for underestimating her, or her characters, or humanity, is hard to say. ‘Sarah Churchwell wrote in her review. Described as an “exquisite”, ‘compelling novel, full of characters who ring true’, Commonwealth has received wide critical acclaim and been praised for its ‘effortlessly graceful’ storytelling. It has also been nominated for the National Book Critics Circle award for fiction in the US.

Enjoy food and drink purchased from the Knowledge Centre Bar from 18.00 and after the event until the Bar closes at 22.00.

Alan Ayckbourn: Eighty Plays On

(Please note this event has sold out)

Join playwright Alan Ayckbourn in conversation with Peter Kemp

Alan Ayckbourn has been a playwright for 58 years, and to date has written 80 plays, including Relatively Speaking, How the Other Half Loves, Absurd Person Singular and The Norman Conquests. In 1997 he was knighted for services to theatre, and he has won numerous awards. With Peter Kemp, Chief Fiction Reviewer for The Sunday Times, he explores the way his work combines comedy with underlying seriousness, and the way he uses humour to treat themes such as emotional inhibition, isolation, failures of communication and fraughtness within families. We also hear about influences on his writing, his working routines and his on-going fascination with technical experimentation.

May Meetup

I’m really excited to welcome back Dejan from Densters.

Back in November, Dejan joined us to share his experiences of Kickstarter mid-campaign. In fact, his project reached its funding goal a few hours after the meetup!

As I see it, there are four phases to a crowdfunding campaign:

Preparation
The Campaign
Manufacturing and Fulfilment
Putting your feet up OR running a business

All of them are hard work, and all pose very different types of challenges, but arguably the most critical part of turning an idea into reality is the part where you actually have to make your products. There is so much to do at this point, and even the best-laid plans will run into challenges.

This is where Dejan and Densters are now. I’ve been enjoying following their progress updates on Kickstarter – from toy fairs to Chinese factories – and I hope you’ll enjoy hearing from him in person.

The are two new works for clarinet quintet are the latest fruits of Linda Merrick’s collaboration with the Kreutzers, which earlier resulted in the late John McCabe’s ‘La Donna’ for quintet. Paul Pellay dramatic, elegiac quintet is the latest in a large body of work written for the members of the Quartet.

Art, Science and Quantum Computing

Artists and designers from the Systems Research Group at the Royal College of Art and quantum physicists from the Centre for Quantum Photonics at the University of Bristol discuss their collaboration and the process of producing artworks with early stage quantum computers.

The Systems Research Group sits within the Information Experience Design programme at the Royal College of Art and is led by tutor Dr. Libby Heaney.

Conservation in Focus

With over 150 million items in our care – from 3,000 year-old Chinese oracle bones to rare books and manuscripts, and to maps, photographs and textiles – the work of the British Library Centre for Conservation (BLCC) ensures we can protect fragile and vulnerable items, making them accessible for present and future generations.

Join us for a day of talks, discussion and practical demonstrations that provide an insight into the crucial work undertaken by our experts. Led by Dr Cordelia Rogerson, Head of Conservation, you’ll hear from a range of conservators and conservation scientists, and have the opportunity to discuss and reflect on the varied work of the BLCC with our team throughout the day.
