|
Free NRG banner
 
FreeNRG is a collection of frontline communiques on technotribes, contemporary musical practices and events transpiring on the fringes of Australian dance culture throughout the nineties. The anthology's 13 essays are written by specialists and affiliates of a spectrum of youth phenomena found at the edge of the dance floor.

Edited by the radical anthropologist Graham St John, FreeNRG describes a series of Australian subcultures who subscribe to an economy of mutual-aid and co-operation, are committed to the non-commodification of art and embrace freedoms of experience and expression. Artists and activists, their cultural output is a product of novel mixtures of pleasure and politics. technicians and esotericists, they pirate technologies in the pursuit of re-enchantment and liberated space.
