Centrum Sonic Lecture 1: Ancient Futurism (DJ Zhao, Sun 23rd Oct)
The first in a series of Sonic Lectures takes place at Centrum (Reuterstr 8, Berlin 12053) this Sunday (23rd October 2011), starting at 7pm. Entitled Ancient Futurism, the lecture is by ehnomusicologist DJ Zhao. He plans to explore the many connections and continuities between pre-modern ancestral sound traditions and some of the most innovative of contemporary musical movements.
"From limited available evidence we will draw interrelated lines which form pictures of undeniable genealogy, which includes both advancement and deterioration, and further challenge outdated yet persisting notions of progress and today's common and severely distorted views of world cultures".
