Free - no booking required
This Listening Seminar will feature two new audio-works produced specially made for the Seminar: 'Viral Content' by Jennifer Boyd and 'Notes on the Eerie' by Mark Fisher.
Jennifer and Mark will then enter into conversation with Elizabeth Bernholz/ Gazelle Twin who will be playing and talking about her own music and some of the music that inspired her.
Jennifer Boyd is a creative/critical writer based in London. Boyd’s practice considers post-anarchist tactics, new media, sonic and visual culture, feminism and girls, queer and radical theory, often through concept-engineering and image-writing. Projects include “Bask In It: An Image-Manifesto” for Either/And, a project hosted by The National Media Museum, and the concept essay for Feeling Queezy?!, an upcoming exhibition at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Estonia.
UK based artist Elizabeth Bernholz is best known by the moniker 'Gazelle Twin', under which she releases work ranging from music and film, to live performance and installations. Her debut LP, The Entire City (Anti-Ghost Moon Ray, July 2011), and its recent follow-up, Mammal EP (Sugarcane Recordings, January 2013) were received with critical acclaim despite their small-scale releases. A second LP UNFLESH is planned for release in 2014.
Mark Fisher is the author of Capitalist Realism (2009) and the forthcoming Ghosts Of My Life: Writings on Depression, Hauntology and Lost Futures. His writing has appeared in many publications, including The Wire, Frieze, The Guardian and Film Quarterly. He is Programme Leader of the MA in Aural and Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London and a lecturer at the University of East London. He has also produced two acclaimed audio-essays in collaboration with Justin Barton:londonunderlondon (2005) and On Vanishing Land (2013).
