As part of the one-day conference, this gig at the SU has sets from Sharon Gal, Marlo Eggplant and Sly & the Family Drone.
"Fringes, outsides and undergrounds: The aesthetics and politics of unpopular music"
The conference includes this evening performance, which will run from 6-9pm in the Student’s Union at Goldsmiths and features at 6.30pm Sharon Gal; 7.15pm Marlo Eggplant; 8pm Sly and the Family Drone and DunningWebsterUnderwood.
Musical forms such as noise, extreme metal, performance art, experimental techno, free improv and more take inspiration from both popular and art traditions without being fully identifiable with either.
These forms exist either on the fringes of, or outside, commercial and cultural mainstreams, both in conventional musical centres such as London and Berlin and further afield, in South America, Japan and China.
Our conference includes 18 scholars and researchers presenting papers on a wide variety of themes emerging from these fringe, underground musical practices.
Attendance at both the conference and the concert is free
