The AfroFuturist Affair

A Charity & Costume Ball

martynpepperell:

MORE BRILLIANT THAN THE SUN: ADVENTURES IN SONIC FICTION
Heavy on the neologisms, re-appropriated jargon and compound words, respected English academic Kodwo Eshun draws a series of interconnected lines between science fiction and black music, as filtered through an afrofuturist lense. Memories of the future, as Kode9 would say. In the process, Eshun completely deconstructs the future proofing often associated with mainstream coverage of electronic music and electronic music production tools. My copy of this book cost me a lot of money, and I didn’t mind one bit.
