Sound Central 2013- ‘Truckfest’ is born- Taking ‘alternative’ Music outside of Kabul in Afghanistan



We give special props to Travis Beard and his entire team of musical trailblazers based out in Kabul, Afghanistan who have been on a musical mission in the regions for a while. If running an alternative musical festival in Kabul sounds amazing to you – imagine planning to take this mission outside of Kabul and then playing an alternative concert in the back of a truck! That’s exactly what was done just a few weeks ago – and all part of the exciting build-up towards the 3rd Sound Central Music Festival in the region.

Sound Central was born out of the belly of the tiny underground music scene in Kabul in 2007. Argus and Combat Communications has been plugging in amps and taking electric shocks to bring music to the masses.

With support from the international community growing the dream of hosting Afghanistan’s first ever modern music festival came to fruition on October the 1st 2011. 8 bands played to over 500 Afghan Youth.

In the space of two years the festival had gone from a modern music festival to an alternative arts festival and now just a few weeks away from the 2013 festival.

The reason why they take on this a project in such a challenging environment:

* To give a platform to Afghan Artists to express themselves
* To give Afghan youth access to alternative arts in a safe environment
* To give a special platform to female artists in a comfortable environment
* To invite region and international artists to exchange cultures and ideas
* To show to the entire world that Afghanistan is rich in culture and does have a longing
to indulge in the arts like any other country does.

We look forward to supporting the festival from the region in 2014 and watch this space as we help showcase the incredible artists emerging from Kabul in Afghanistan.

Demanding to be heard and completely fitting the remit of the worldwide Guavo Music Sessions. Where only the artists and musicians who have an element of ‘Incredible’ to what they are doing get featured regardless of genre or location.

Location: Just outside Kabul in Afghanistan
ONLINE LINK: http://soundcentralfestival.com/

For music artists based anywhere worldwide who would like to perform at the festival in 2014 feel free to reach out and also show your support to quite an innovative project.

‘Perfect Places’
Every night,
I live and die
Feel the party to my bones
Watch the wasters blow the speakers,
Spill my guts beneath the outdoor light
It’s just another graceless night
I hate the headlines and the weather,
I’m nineteen and I’m on fire
But when we’re dancing I’m alright
It’s just another graceless night

Are you lost enough?
Have another drink, get lost in us
This is how we get notorious
Cause I don’t know,
If they keep telling me where to go
I’ll blow my brains out to the radio

All of the things we’re taking
’cause we are young and we’re ashamed
Send us to perfect places
All of our heroes fading
Now I can’t stand to be alone
Let’s go to perfect places

Every night, I live and die
Meet somebody, take ’em home
Let’s kiss and then take off our clothes
It’s just another graceless night

All the nights spent off our faces
Tryna find these perfect places
What the fuck are perfect places anyway?

Alternative internet



Alternative internet to keep the Government Out

Scores of communities worldwide have been building these roll-your-own networks—often because a mesh can also be used as a cheap way to access the regular internet. But along the way people are discovering an intriguing upside: Their new digital spaces are autonomous and relatively safe from outside meddling.

Joseph Bonicioli mostly uses the same internet you and I do. He pays a service provider a monthly fee to get him online. But to talk to his friends and neighbors in Athens, Greece, he’s also got something much weirder and more interesting: a private, parallel internet.

He and his fellow Athenians built it. They did so by linking up a set of rooftop wifi antennas to create a “mesh,” a sort of bucket brigade that can pass along data and signals. It’s actually faster than the Net we pay for: Data travels through the mesh at no less than 14 megabits a second, and up to 150 Mbs a second, about 30 times faster than the commercial pipeline I get at home. Bonicioli and the others can send messages, video chat, and trade huge files without ever appearing on the regular internet. And it’s a pretty big group of people: Their Athens Wireless Metropolitan Network has more than 1,000 members, from Athens proper to nearby islands. Anyone can join for free by installing some equipment. “It’s like a whole other web,” Bonicioli told me recently. “It’s our network, but it’s also a playground.”

Indeed, the mesh has become a major social hub. There are blogs, discussion forums, a Craigslist knockoff; they’ve held movie nights where one member streams a flick and hundreds tune in to watch. There’s so much local culture that they even programmed their own mini-Google to help meshers find stuff. “It changes attitudes,” Bonicioli says. “People start sharing a lot. They start getting to know someone next door–they find the same interests; they find someone to go out and talk with.” People have fallen in love after meeting on the mesh.

The Athenians aren’t alone. Scores of communities worldwide have been building these roll-your-own networks–often because a mesh can also be used as a cheap way to access the regular internet. But along the way people are discovering an intriguing upside: Their new digital spaces are autonomous and relatively safe from outside meddling. In an era when governments and corporations are increasingly tracking our online movements, the user-controlled networks are emerging as an almost subversive concept. “When you run your own network,” Bonicioli explains, “nobody can shut it down.”

THE INTERNET may seem amorphous, but it’s at heart pretty physical. Its backbone is a huge array of fiber-optic, telephone, and TV cables that carry data from country to country. To gain access, you need someone to connect your house to that backbone. This is what’s known as the “last mile” problem, and it’s usually solved by large internet service providers such as AT&T and Comcast. They buy access to the backbone and charge you for delivering the signal via telephone wires or cable lines. Most developed nations have plenty of ISPs, but in poor countries and rural areas, the last-mile problem still looms large. If providers don’t think there’s enough profit in household service, they either don’t offer any or do it only at exorbitant rates.

Meshes evolved to tackle this problem. Consider the Spanish network Guifi, which took root in the early aughts as people got sick of waiting for their sclerotic telcos to wire the countryside. “In some places you can wait for 50 years and die and you’re still waiting,” jokes Guifi member Ramon Roca. The bandwidth-starved Spaniards attached long-range antennas to their wifi cards and pointed them at public hot spots like libraries. Some contributed new backbone connections by shelling out, individually or in groups, for expensive DSL links, while others dipped into the network for free. (Guifi is a complex stew of charity, free-riding, and cost-sharing.) To join the bucket brigade, all you had to do was add some hardware that allowed your computer’s wifi hub to pass along the signal to anyone in your vicinity. Gradually, one hub at a time, Guifi grew into the world’s largest mesh, with more than 21,000 members. “When people see the price they get from the mesh, they’re like, ‘Ten bucks a month? Oh, shit, I’ll pay that!’”

LYRICS:
I’m feelin the way that I’m feelin myself
Fuck everyone else
gotta remember that nobody’s better than anyone else, here

do you need some time to think it over?

Look what they do to you
Look what they do to me
You must be joking if you think that either one is free , here

Get up off your knees girl
Stand face to face with your God
And find out what you are
(Hello my name is Human)
Hello, my name is human
And I came down from the stars
(Hello my name is human)

I’m ready for love and I’m ready for war
But I’m ready for more
I know that nobodies ever been this
Fucking ready before

Do you need some time to think it over

So figure it out or don’t figure it out
I figured it out
The bigger the river
The bigger the drout

Get up off your knees boy
Stand face to face with your god
And find out what you are
(Hello my name is human)
Hello, my name is human
And I came down from the stars
(Hello my name is human)

Fire world I love you
Fireworld

I’m up off my knees girl
I am face to face with myself
And I know who I am
And I stole the power from the sun
I am more than just a man
(No longer disillusioned)

(I’m not asking questions
cause questions have answers
and I don’t want answers )

I came down from the stars

(So I’ll take my chances
And what are the chances
That I could advance
On my own circumstances
Said what are the chances
And what are the chances)

Hello my name is human
And I know who I am

(I’m not after answers
I’m not asking questions
So you keep your answers
So you keep your answers
I’m not asking questions
I’m taking my chances)
