presented by @makenoisemusic [ FIRST MEETING !!]
a reading group focusing on DeForrest Brown Jr.’s book, Assembling A Black Counterculture!
Make Techno Black Again. That’s the unequivocal call of an initiative by DeForrest Brown, Jr. The Birmingham, Alabama-raised theorist, musician, and activist dismantles the myths surrounding techno’s origins. His book Assembling a Black Counter Culture fuses the history of the music with the experiences of the Black working class in the U.S. and the migration of techno to Europe, offering a new perspective on electronic music and club culture as a whole.
