BFPE hosts If You Got Ears February 2018
Behaviour Function Person Environment BFPE is Amanda Harvey & Andrew Gray
The February edition of If You Got Ears, will focus on a cultural cross-section of music, whether geographically, historically or politically, ranging from raves to clubs to bedroom circuit benders/knob twiddlers. Locating an iconic song within a community, we’ll work from this center point to build genealogy of the social and cultural history surrounding the track, looking at the ways in which the frequencies of electronic music can unite us in a tonal consciousness.
“Electronic circuitry confers a mythic dimension on our ordinary individual and group actions” [McLuhan]
