Dear All,

Our esteemed friend and colleague Roger Mills, 4 years editor of
Furthernoise is in London, on tour with his fantastic new book. Would  love
it if any of you in reach of London would like to join us to celebrate its

Date: Wed 3rd April 2019.

Time - 6-8pm

Venue - Furtherfield Commons


Roger Mills presents his new book Tele-Improvisation: Intercultural
Interaction in the Online Global Jam Session, just published in the
Springer Series on Cultural Computing. This book is the first known
examination of online music making that considers the role of culture in
the interactive musical experience.

It describes how cross-cultural musicians negotiate spatial and temporal
dislocation, distributed agency, as well as the unfamiliar musical,
cultural and phenomenological characteristics of telematic interaction. It
draws on Roger’s extensive experience of networked music making, as well as
case studies of live online performances and interviews with leading
practitioners in the field.

“Mills has provided a timely exposé on the musical and artistic potential
and histories of networked performance. I see this volume urgently relevant
in the current day crises of the network and its social media channels that
have grown into a dangerous pariah eating away at our social, political and
economic systems” - Randall Packer 2018

This part of a larger series of public Lectures and Performances, Europe
2019, by Roger Mills.
