Thought it was about time to update my communications resources again. Have pasted below only a small sampling of what is available by clicking on the urls at the bottom of this post.
Have chosen an image from the "Burning Man" festival as it seems to connect with the kind of techno tribalism I've seen Graham St John talking about on the Dancecult listserv (his latest posting is about Berlin's so-called "fuck parade"). Speaking of Burning Man, this topic is covered quite extensively in the Leonardo Music Journal. I'd be interested in doing a cross-comparison with the more obviously alien/monstrous kind of collective effervescence I analysed in my earlier post on "the sociology of the secret", but it has to be remarked, the chosen image is uncannily suggestive of a possible crossover.
