On April 1st I'll be making another appearance in the realm of the living, this time at Cafe OTO, London (directions here) to discuss Hauntology alongside Mark Fisher (k-punk). Short films by Julian House (The Focus Group) will be screened, and there'll be music courtesy of Moon Wiring Club and Mordant Music too.

A new series of monthly salon-type events, hosted by The Wire magazine at Cafe Oto in East London, and dedicated to the fine art and practice of thinking and talking about music. The evenings, which will take place on the first Thursday of each month, will consist of readings, discussions, panel debates, film screenings, DJ sets and even the occasional live performance.
For the first event in the series, Revenant Forms: The Meaning of Hauntology, Mark Fisher (K-Punk) and Adam Harper (Rouge's Foam) will head a panel debating the essence of the spectral, uncanny qualities of much contemporary audio, from dubstep to hypnagogic pop and beyond. The night will also include screenings of a number of short films by Julian House (Ghost Box, The Focus Group), which feature soundtracks by Broadcast, Belbury Poly and others; a live set by Moon Wiring Club; and eldritch vinyl interludes courtesy of Mordant Music.
