Assembling a Black Counter Culture

By DeForrest Brown, Jr.

In Assembling a Black Counter Culture, writer and musician DeForrest Brown, Jr, provides a history and critical analysis of techno and adjacent electronic music such as house and electro, showing how the genre has been shaped over time by a Black American musical sensibility.

Brown revisits Detroit’s 1980s techno scene to highlight pioneering groups like the Belleville Three before jumping into the origins of today’s international club floor to draw important connections between industrialized labor systems and cultural production. Among the other musicians discussed are Underground Resistance (Mad Mike Banks, Cornelius Harris), Drexciya, Juan Atkins (Cybotron, Model 500), Derrick May, Jeff . . . .go to book page >>

Electronic: From Kraftwerk to the Chemical Brothers

Edited by Jean-Yves Leloup, Gemma Curtin, Maria McLintock. Introduction by Jean-Yves Leloup. Foreword by Tim Marlow. Interviews with Yuri Suzuki, Jeff Mills, James Hyman, Adrian Shaughnessy, Ian Anderson, Patrick Thévenin, Kiddy Smile.

With its roots in Detroit and Chicago in the early 1980s, electronic dance music was popularized across Europe through underground rave parties and clubs. Its impact on contemporary culture is still unfolding today. Containing interviews with early pioneers such as techno legend Jeff Mills, The Designers Republic’s Ian Anderson, and those pushing the political dimension of electronic music, such as ballroom dancer and DJ Kiddy Smile, Electronic bears witness to the shifting nature of the genre.

Illustrated with over 300 images, some published here for the first time, Electronic features Jean-Michel Jarre’s virtual studio; work by pioneer Daphne Oram of the . . . .go to book page >>

Maryanne Amacher: Selected Writings and Interviews

Edited by Bill Dietz & Amy Cimini. Text by Maryanne Amacher. Interviews by Jeffrey Bartone, Elliot Handelman, Frank J. Oteri, Keiko Prince, Barbara Golden, Amy Cimini, Bill Dietz, Kabir Carter.

Maryanne Amacher (1938-2009) was a composer of large-scale fixed-duration sound installations and a highly original thinker in the areas of perception, sound spatialization and aural architecture. She is frequently cited as a pioneer of what has come to be called sound art,” although her thought and work challenges assumptions about the limitations of that genre.

Maryanne Amacher: Selected Writings and Interviews represents the first ever book-length collection devoted to the composer, whose life and work are as vast as they are as yet unknown. From personal notes and letters to program notes, manifestos and unrealized project proposals, the documents are framed . . . .go to book page >>
