Electronic Landscapes: Music, Space and Resistance in Detroit
Electronic Landscapes: Music, Space and Resistance in Detroit (EL) celebrates Detroit’s techno, house and hip-hop musicians who construct home studios, renovate buildings and sustain community despite increasing pressure from land development and speculation.
It sheds a fresh light on the city’s cultural significance and further contextualizes its current resurgence. Readers are invited to glimpse rarely seen aspects of Detroit’s electronic music culture, and to reflect on historic and contemporary places in Detroit’s landscape related to it.
Featured musicians discuss their process and the significant link between race, space and cultural production, a theme expanded upon in critical texts by scholars Dora Apel and Carla Vecchiola, and internationally renowned DJ, John Collins.
