This series brings together artists, musicians, and writers to think about different notions of Black Industrial/Noise. How has it been elaborated previously? What affiliations between musical forms might it suggest? What different meanings does it have for practitioners working today?

Before the performance, Dhangsha will be joined in conversation by Neil Kulkarni.

Third guest artist: Dhangsha.
Dhangsha (Bengali for ‘destruction’) is the project and alias of sound artist and educator Aniruddha Das. He works at the interface of bass culture and experimental electronica, creating a kind of “mutant dancehall” where distorted “alien” motifs evolve and disintegrate over sparse but heavy beats. Through the processes of sampling and sequencing, he explores minimalism, repetition and fragmentation, instigating interactions between metered and non-metric rhythm and noise.

Neil Kulkarni
Neil Kulkarni has been writing about music for innumerable mags, newspapers and sites since 1993, with a particular focus on the racial and political aspects of music making and listening. Alongside two books on hip hop, his ‘Eastern Spring’ book for Zero in 2013 explored Indian classical and Bollywood music through the lens of his life as a 2nd-Generation immigrant and music critic based in Coventry. He continues to teach about music and cultural history, and writes about new music for The Wire, Electronic Sound and The Quietus as well as his own substack. He is currently writing a new book for Repeater.

Supported by Department of Art, Goldsmiths, University of London
