NN10 / NN 11: Deprogramming

NN will release two important projects today, which, even though not created at the same time, nor with the same intentions, together seem to make sense in nowadays social climate:

NN10: Hookface-1981
NN11: Menard/Fisher-DJ Culture as a Function of Neoliberal Capitalism

"1981" is an album recorded by Mikrosopht in 2003. Back then I was very keen on releasing it through "Rather Interesting", yet did the inherent copyright issue prevent such intent. The recording, like a good wine, matured profoundly over the last decade and seems to be the perfect comment on an increasingly complicated era. An era in which so-called "Electronic Music" has transformed into a genre of embarrassing complicity towards the status quo. The album is available for free download on Bandcamp

This leads to NN11, a book written by Natalie Menard and Keith Fisher in 2010 entitled "DJ Culture as a Function of Neoliberal Capitalism". Originally published as Paper #64 as part of a series called "La Phénoménologie du Capital" (Department of Sociology in cooperation with the Institute of Economics and Management (IEMN-IBE), University of Nantes), fragments of the text made it into various online publications, before it was fully translated into english. NN decided to make it its first limited edition book release. The table of contents reads:

1 Introduction
2 Mix and Surplus
3 Inflation - Volume and Duration
4 Crossfade - Sync and Integration
5 Stimulants and Sedatives
6 Minimalism and Optimization
7 The Digital and Mass Production
8 Compatibility and Globalization
9 Genre, Style, Fashion - Hegemony and Control

Appendices

Not just being a theoretical abstract, the authors make concrete references, both to DJs/Producers as to musical examples alike, elaborating the current role of creators and creations within the socio-economic framework of the 21st century.

More than just a comment, NN considers both releases necessary points of departure towards the redefinition of electricity based creation in today's shifting reality.
