Navigating noise( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Navigating Noise means getting off the beaten track in order to find, or rather, to create something new. This publication is the result of such unconventional navigations, which follow the track of noise on its path across art, science, and the humanities. The point of departure is the artwork Navigating Noise by Kerstin Ergenzinger. This ephemeral, somewhat out-worldly sound installation provides the framework for a collection of academic and artistic contributions that address the need for alternative means of orientation to deal with noise and to understand and (re)establish our unstable position within a highly technologized, mediated, and globalized reality. These navigations cover a broad terrain of research: from the starry skies to the deep oceans, from the ice cores of Greenland to sonic navigation in the animal kingdom, from spatial acoustics in World War I to noise music. Through a multidisciplinary approach, Navigating Noise paves the way for unexpected connections between research domains located"--Publisher's website

Sharp Sharp! : the kwaito story( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

South Africa has produced more than its share of distinctive and influential musical genres. The 1990s style known as kwaito was that nation's first major post-Apartheid musical movement, and while it drew from American hip-hop and American and European electronic dance music, this was a powerfully South African sound and cultural force. Several stars of kwaito speak of its origins, originators and the conflict between its joyful syncretism and its township immediacy

"The Electronic Music Symposium and the Unyazi Festival of 2005 observed through the visionary and techno eye of Aryan Kaganof (SMS Sugar Man). Vibrations and hypnotism collude to create sound and visual empathies in theatres or in the street, on a pavement. One more chapter in the exploration of African culture by the South African multimedia artist, in the inextricable relationship between memory and the present, traditional instruments and computer-generated sounds. The film has been described as "an important document of an historic occasion" by Dr. Michael Blake and "a very interesting record of a rather odd event" by Professor Christine Lucia. UNYAZI OF THE BUSHVELD is the first production of the AFRICAN NOISE FOUNDATION featuring the seamless sound design of Joel Assaizky (Hard Copy, Bunny Chow)."--New Music website: http://newmusicsa.org.za/node/188
Venom and eternity( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the most general way, sexual behaviour is opposed to everyday behaviour as expenditure is to saving. If we behave in accordance with reason, we acquire all sorts of goods, we work to augment our resources or our learning, and strive in various ways to acquire more. As a rule, such conduct determines our sense of ourselves in social life. But at the moment of sexual fever we behave in a completely different way: we expend our energy without restraint, and squander a considerable amount of our vitality violently and with no profit to ourselves. Sexual pleasure has so much in common with destruction that we have named the moment of its paroxysm the 'little death'. In general, passionate destruction and reckless betrayal alone have the power to cause us to enter into the world of sex. Suffering and sadistically inflicted death defer the moment of collapse; by no means do they run counter to it. In the same way prostitution, erotic vocabulary, the inevitable connection between sexuality and excretion, contribute to make the world of the senses a world of loss and destruction. It appears that our only true happiness is to spend vainly, and we always want to be sure of the uselessness of our expenditure; we want to feel as far away as possible from th responsible world in which augmentation of resources is the rule. But we could go no further, since we would like to oppose it, and commonly in eroticism there is an impulse towards aggressive hatred, an impulse towards betrayal. This is why distress is connected to it, and wy, in counterpart, if the hatred is powerless, and the betrayal involuntary, the erotic element becomes ridiculous

The uprising of Hangberg : eyewitness accounts detailing human rights violations during the uprising of Hangberg by Aryan Kaganof( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Uprising of Hangberg is an activist documentary filmed by Dylan Valley and Aryan Kaganof in response to the events of a particular day. The original music score is by Stellenbosch University music student, Natasje van der Westhuizen. The documentary provides raw footage and eyewitness accounts of the attempts by the Western Cape Provincial Administration and the City of Cape Town to evict residents from their homes in Hangberg, Hout Bay in the Western Cape, edited to both highlight the brutality of the riots but also the failed promises of local politicians, a microcosm of the failed promises of the larger South Africa. On 21 September 2010, Cape Town Metro Police officers entered the township to forcibly remove several township residents and destroy their homes which were built above the determined firebreak. The Rastafarian community in Hangberg is central to the narrative developed in the film, which also documents Rastafarian Nyabingi, a resident of Hangberg chanting and drumming the traditional music of the Rastafarian religion. The Uprising of Hangberg works not only on the artistic level, but also as a political intervention enabling a marginalized community to speak of their oppression and trauma
