What are your strategies to enter this year?
It's a new cycle again. That time of the year when we wish great things happen to us and to others.
I'm back from my social media break(how long will I last?) to wish you all my followers, non followers and haters a powerful 2022 with #strength and #resilience to cope with the hard times and #nuance and #abundance to helps us enjoy #tragedieoptimiste called life. #dystopia cannot be the only way.
Just uploaded a track commissioned by the amazing artist and dancer Jamila Johnson-Small for their project 'Heavy handed, we crush the moment' .
Originally presented in November 2019 at the Barbican, it was an immersive experience, somewhere between a dreamscape, a meditation, a nightmare and a nightclub.

Of all the greyzones of our readwrite worldings, bibliographic self-defence constitutes a specially powerful one. Self-defence, resistance, counter-weighting and mutual support operations of immense technopolitical value keep taking place at what can be termed "peripheral literature areas" such as bibliographies, footnotes, indexes, acknowledgement pages, colophons, library metadata and side annotations, where trans*feminist, anticolonial, antiracist, queer, crip, antispeciest, antifa and atiageist solidarities take very tangible and specific forms.
The devices we surround ourselves with are an increasingly complex and extremely heterogeneous matter. In a short workshop we will investigate the materiality and inevitable politics of electronic components. We will take an interdisciplinary approach to dissect specific objects in terms of their material, socio-cultural and ecological dimension.
In this process we will dismantle and dissect components to their very building blocks, investigating components from the Electronica Depot.

I'm learning how to use Natural Language Processing nltk tool kit to make experimental poetry and writings. I hear it's really out-of-date though.
I also know the work of Allison Parrish which is brilliant! Anyone knows what I'm talking about or doing the same? Or could share your strategies to deal with massive frustration of learning it? lol
video up on youtube as part of the Brazilian F[r]estas Festival de Improvisaçao.
Check it out!....I'm also beginning to experiment with natural language processing to make text/poetry.
This Sunday morning at Varia: Read & Repair - The Automated Body feat. Angeliki Diakrousi
The text selection for Read in May was made by @anglk whose work engages critically with notions of listening and dynamics of public realms.
In this edition of Read participants will be invited to pick a text, read in groups, breath and share their readings through an (un)automated persona. We discuss automations of the human body, that surpasses the idea that 'human' differs from the other animals in that it uses tools. They are;

📡 As part 3 of my little cyber ruins project i made a few book copies with screenshots from field research. I only have a monochrome laser printer, so i used three different types of paper to add some color. It has 40 pages, i think that’s nearly the maximum for staple binding and cutting with this old rusty machine i have… i have to find out how to sharpen the knife very soooon

Some photos of my sound installation "Sonic Life/Social Death" with multimedia artist Caetano at the Dystopie Festival in Berlin last year.
Thanks to everyone who came. It was weird but exciting to have managed to adapt to circumstances and go ahead with the show.
I also talked about black revolutionary electronic music, sonic dominance, black intel and the importance of protecting these narratives.
You can see the whole documentation of the exhibition here:
Decolonization isn’t about going back in time it’s about seizing the future. Good night
