NOT YOUR WORLD MUSIC –
Dimitri della Faille on noise in South East Asia

15 August 2016 (Monday) | 10am | Abelardo Hall, UP College of Music

Dimitri della Faille, PhD, presents some of the research that went into « Not Your World Music: Noise in South East Asia (Art, Politics, Identity, Gender and Global Capitalism) », the first major publication on noise, electroacoustic, industrial, experimental music and sound art in the ASEAN countries (including Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar/Burma, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam).

Written and edited by Cedrik Fermont and Dr. della Faille, the book includes historical, political and sociological essays, exclusive interviews with artists and organizers, as well as an extensive bibliography and discography. The book is also a manifesto against stereotypes and censure, especially when it comes to colonialism, ethnocentrism, male-centered perspectives and sexism. It aims to empower an independent, proud and strong scene. The book and its accompanying anthology CD will be officially released in early September 2016.

Tisser le fil rouge. Le printemps érable en Outaouais – récits militants

L’ouvrage collectif  « Tisser le fil rouge » dans lequel je contribue un chapitre est maintenant disponible en librairie. Cet ouvrage rassemble des témoignages militants d’une quarantaine d’auteures et d’auteurs qui réfléchissent aux évènements entourant la mobilisation et la grève étudiante à l’Université du Québec en Outaouais et au CEGEP de l’Outaouais en 2012.

Couvert_1er_Tisser le fil3

Mon chapitre pour cet ouvrage s’intitule « Souriez, vous êtes filmés. Euh ! circulez, vous êtes surveillés ! ». Dans ce texte, je partage mes réflexions à propos de la notion de surveillance et je fais également part de notre expérience de séances d’éducation populaires ou « teach-in » tenues sous les caméras installées par la haute administration de l’université pendant la mobilisation étudiante.
