About the event

How do ideas of nihilism, darkness, the self, abjection and horror play out in experimental music and performance?

How do ideas of nihilism, darkness, subjectivity and abjection play out in experimental music, performance art, supernatural horror; in neuroscience or philosophy?  Or: how can you trust what you think or feel? A Special Form of Darkness is an open, convivial music/ performance/ ideas hybrid - a cross between a festival, magazine and discussion. Check out the Introduction for some more in depth information about the thinking behind the programme.

Keiji Haino, Junko, Walter Marchetti, Deflag Haemorrhage/Haien Kontra, Taku Unami,
