South Coast - Brighton (UK) hip hop documentary by Will Jewell

Watch the video

I saw "South Coast" a documentary about Brighton (UK)'s hip hop community by Will Jewell last saturday night at the Jerusalem Cinematheque as part of the British Film Festival. I thought the film was a great balance of original roots of hip hop, respecting the US origins, whilst highlighting the original crews from the local Brighton community and featuring some of the up & coming artists also. a great snap shot into Brighton hip hop. it feels similar to Australian hip hop in some ways.

I wrote some names during the film so I could find out about them later. (hard to read my writing so hopefully I have these right!)

FLOSS manuals works towards Richard M Stallman's Free Documentation ideas

Richard Stallman, founder of the GNU project and the term 'copyleft' wrote about Free Documentation in his book "Free Software, Free Society : Selected Essays of Richard Stallman".

"The biggest deficiency in our free operating systems is not in the software—it is the lack of good free manuals that we can include in our systems. Documentation is an essential part of any software package; when an important free software package does not come with a good free manual, that is a major gap. We have many such gaps today. "

"Free documentation, like free software, is a matter of freedom, not price. The criterion for a free manual is pretty much the same as for free software: it is a matter of giving all users certain freedoms. Redistribution (including commercial sale) must be permitted, on-line and on paper, so that the manual can accompany every copy of the program. "

FLOSS Manuals is a site dedicated to providing free and open source, FLOSS manuals on a variety of technical topics such as audio editing, VOIP, video editing, streaming, free culture, audio editing, media players, and more. visit their site to read the manuals : http://en.flossmanuals.net/

Watch the video

part of a performance by Jasch - generative audio and video soundscapes to immerse yourself in

Codespace integrates realtime drawing and motion-images with electronic sounds that evoke an abstract place where organical and crystalline shapes pulsate and flow. Generative (rule-based) processes or algorithms and realtime action by the artist are applied to basic shapes which in conjuction with finely graded colours comprise a rich palette of textures and shapes. empty dark space is inhabited by fast moving abstract shapes, structures with an architectural quality develop over extended periods of time. The piece evolves from dark and minimalist atmospheres to abstract densities, like a digital painting performed before the viewer's eyes. Memory of the images accumulates, obtaining qualities like a painting or etching. Reduction and concentration of elements helps to maintain the crucial focus, build the tension and give insights into the enigmatic and invisible world built of code.
