By DeForrest Brown, Jr. Published by Primary Information.
Assembling a Black Counter Culture is a critical history of techno and adjacent electronic music. The book charts the development of this cultural movement as a unique American art form. Revisiting Detroit’s techno roots through the 1980’s, writer and musician DeForrest Brown, Jr. follows the extended thinking and techniques behind key early players and places them in conversation with the African American working class and industrialized labor systems of the historically emblematic Motor City. From The Assembling a Black Counter Culture illuminates the mechanics of American mainstream cultural production and reinstates electronic music from a Black theoretical perspective.
