REGENERATIVE FEEDBACK SOURCE/CHANNEL/NOISE: COLIN SELF, SUKHDEV SANDHU, MANNI DEE, JULES GIMBRONE, ADAM HARPER, EWA JUSTKA + ROC JIMÉNEZ DE CISNEROS, ANDREW CAPPETTA
“The required subject—a collective subject—does not exist, yet the crisis, like all the other global crises we’re now facing, demands that it be constructed.” & “To reclaim a real political agency means first of all accepting our insertion at the level of desire in the remorseless meat-grinder of Capital.” — M. Fisher
Friday, May 25th, ISSUE is pleased to open Regenerative Feedback: On Listening And Its Emancipatory Potential, a three day symposium of talks, presentations, discourse, and performances centered around biological, social, political and cognitive negotiations in music. Experimental in form, each evening of Regenerative Feedback explores various ethical dimensions, historical circumstances, and cultural resonances of musical artifacts through a series of individual presentations, a roundtable conversation guided by a moderator, interlocuting performances, and extended Q&As.
Taking the general heading SOURCE/CHANNEL/NOISE as a point of departure, the Friday event features presentations from artist and composer Colin Self (returning to ISSUE after the 2014 premiere of The Fool, co-written with 2014 Artist-In-Residence Raul de Nieves), Sukhdev Sandhu (Director of the Center for Experimental Humanities at NYU), UK producer and activist Mannie Dee, music critic and musicologist Adam Harper, Polish electronic noise artist Ewa Justka + artist and EVOL member Roc Jiménez de Cisneros, and art historian Andrew Cappetta, who also moderates the panel. In addition, the evening also features interlocuting performances from artist, composer, and former ISSUE Artist-In-Residence Jules Gimbrone and a DJ set from Mannie Dee.
