Cesura // Acceso: new journal for music and experimental politics launched

A new journal for music and experimental politics is launching, titled Cesura // Acceso, and a fundraiser is being held on 20 June at Limehouse Town Hall to help pay for the first issue's production costs. Performing at the event will be Ute Kanngiesser, Seymour Wright, Design A Wave, Anthony Iles, Marina Vishmidt, Mike Levitt and James Janco, with more to be announced.

The journal will be published in black and white, with each issue made available online as a PDF one month after publication. The aim, as stated on their site, is to "ignite, develop and sustain dialogue and discourse (which seems to be missing or hidden) between contemporary music and spaces of political thought and action".

The event marks the start of a crowdfunding campaign for the journal, and any profits after printing costs are covered will be distributed equally to contributors. Anyone wishing to contribute should email

The event takes place at London Limehouse Town Hall, 20 June, 8pm–3am, £5. More details here.

UPDATE: The Kickstarter is now up and runs here until 12 July.
