Music as Spectral Infrastructure

In Turntable Epistemologies, artist, scholar, writer and DJ Lynnée Denise discusses her research into sound system culture during the rollout of neoliberalism in the 1980s, focusing on how one can think about sound system culture as a mode of survival for Black queers and migrants under assault from Thatcherism and Reaganism. The conversation reflects on how the contemporary understanding of neoliberalism as a racially and sexually oppressive regime is due to the cultural work of sound system producers and dancers.
