Event

Damon & Naomi with Richard Youngs
Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang started playing music together as the rhythm section, co-songwriters, and sometime singers in Galaxie 500. When that band ended, they continued as a duo, first recording for Shimmy Disc and then on a series of albums for Sub Pop Records. In 2005, they formed their own label (20/20/20) and have since released four further Damon & Naomi albums  The Earth Is Blue, Within These Walls, False Beats and True Hearts, and Fortune  alongside reissues of their own and the Galaxie 500 back catalogue.

Live performances from 8.30pm

7pm - 8pm
Damon will be joined by David Keenan to discuss their recent books 'The New Analog: Listening and Reconnecting in a Digital World' by Damon Krukowski, and 'This is Memorial Device' by David Keenan. There will be a chance for audience questions as well as readings form the books.

'The New Analog: Listening and Reconnecting in a Digital World'.
What John Berger did to ways of seeing, well-known indie musician Damon Krukowski does to ways of listening in this lively guide to the transition from analog to digital culture
Having made his name in the late 1980s as a member of the indie band Galaxie 500, Damon Krukowski has watched cultural life lurch from analog to digital. And as an artist who has weathered the transition, he has challenging, urgent questions for both creators and consumers about what we have thrown away in the process: Are our devices leaving us lost in our own headspace even as they pinpoint our location? Does the long reach of digital communication come at the sacrifice of our ability to gauge social distance? Do streaming media discourage us from listening closely? Are we hearing each other fully in this new environment?

Rather than simply rejecting the digital disruption of cultural life, Krukowski uses the sound engineers distinction of signal and noise to reexamine what we have lost as a technological culture, looking carefully at what was valuable in the analog realm so we can hold on to it. Taking a set of experiences from the production and consumption of music that have changed since the analog erathe disorientation of headphones, flattening of the voice, silence of media, loudness of mastering, and manipulation of timeas a basis for a broader exploration of contemporary culture, Krukowski gives us a brilliant meditation and guide to keeping our heads amid the digital flux. Think of it as plugging in without tuning out.
