Title: The Call is Coming From Inside Your House: Interpellation and the Ethical Turn in Electronic Dance Music. Presented by: Luis-Manuel Garcia

Abstract: Recently, electronic dance music (EDM) discourse in cities around the globe has shown an increasing interest in rediscovering the genre’s roots in subaltern communities. In this paper, Luis- Manuel Garcia tracks the “call to ethical action” in EDM communities (with a focus on Berlin), attending to the various forms the “call” takes as nightlife organizers summon dancer-listeners to political engagement. Such appeals manifest as musical invocations, sonic conjurations, verbal appellations, and visual demonstrations. He uses Althusser’s notion of “interpellation” to highlight the coercive ideological force of the call as well as its impact on subjectivity. This paper provides an account of this emerging appellative practice, which seeks to reshape audiences by hailing them as political subjects.
