On the occasion of the festival: Lecture and Book launch with Zully Adler “Casual junk and bedroom mythology” Lo-Fi Music and Music Distribution

Zully Adler will present his new publication Casual Junk, which explores new underground music through theories of art, production, and commodity culture. The seminar will dig into the work of several artists working on the margins of independent music, and will consider how their work compares and contrast with the Punk and Do-It-Yourself movements. In particular, Adler will discuss how the details of amateur recordings give new underground music a peculiar intimacy, transforming the way we listen into an inquisitive and relational activity.
