V/A – Rhinoceritis: Voices in Dissent
Due to recent global events/turns towards tyranny, Ladyz in Noyz and Corpus Callosum Distro would like to erupt in a defiant “NO!” In the face of Trump and Brexit and a world of ideologies that lead to more violence, cruelty, and a divisiveness that we will have to explain to future generations, we must declare our dissent and outrage.
This multi-genre compilation was inspired by Ionesco’s play ‘Rhinoceros’ via Teju Cole’s New York Times piece ‘A Time for Refusal’ nyti.ms/2eorijG ). The digital compilation entitled, “RHINOCERITIS: Voices in Dissent”, received submissions from diverse artists of various backgrounds and sounds such as ambient, noise rock, sound art, harsh noise, folk, and crunkcollage, to name a few. Ladyz in Noyz and Corpus Callosum Distro made the call out to raise funds to counter this alarming global situation. We invited contributions from the Ladyz in Noyz network and each track indicates whether the track was submitted by an ally or LIN to support our initiative to promote women artists.
A limited edition Rhinoceritis DISSENT benefit sticker can come with purchase or alone.
Through the angry tears, we must take action in the form of our creations and we aim to raise funds for BORDER ANGELS and Forward Together. Border Angels is ‘an all-volunteer non-profit that advocates for immigration reform and social justice focusing on the U.S.-Mexico border. It offers educational and awareness programs and migrant outreach programs to San Diego County’s immigrant population.’ Forward Together is ‘ a multi-racial organization that works with community leaders and organizations to transform culture and policy to catalyze social change… by developing strong leaders, building networks across communities, and implementing innovative campaigns.’
