In 12 of August of 2017 we did the second meeting of technoshamanism in Aarhus/ Denmark, here is the open call “Technoshamanism in Aarhus, Rethinking ancestrality and technology” (2017).
The first one was in november of 2014 with the name “technomagic and technoshamanism meeting in Aarhus“. It was made at the Open Space, a hacker space in Aarhus.
The second one was made at Dome of Visions, a ecological geodesic located in the region of Port of Aarhus, supported by a group of eco-activists. The meeting was organized by Carsten Agger with Ariane Stolfi, Fabiane M. Borges and Raisa Inocêncio. With the participation of: Amalia Fonfara, Rune Hjarno Rasmussen, Winnie Soon and Sebastian Tranekær. Here you can see the complete programme.
First, we did a radio discussion, after performance/ritual presentations, in the end a jam session of voice, noise with analogical and digital instruments, Smoking and clay bath.

“The venue was really beautiful and well-equipped, its staff was helpful
and people in the audience were friendly and interested. Everything went
completely smoothly and according to plan, and the final ritual was
wonderful with its combination of Arab flute, drumming, noise and visual
performance. All in all a wonderful event.” (Carsten Agger)
“I think it was really instructive and incredibly cool to be with people who have so much knowledge and passion about the subjects they are dealing with. Communication seems to be the focal point, and there was a great willingness to let people express their minds.” (Sebastian Tranekær)
“The meeting was very diverse, the afternoon with speeches and discussion of some topics linked to the network of technoshamanism, such as self-organization, decolonization of thought, then we discussed technology and future cyborg and at the end we talked about noise and feminism. Ritual open with the participation of other people and was very curious to see the engagement, – it was a rite of rock!! ” (Raisa Inocêncio)”
It was so nice to see Aarhus again, this dome of vision is really special place, thank you to all of you!! We did just one day of meeting and we could not listen everybody, but I am sure it is just the beginning!!! I agree with Raisa, it was a rite of rock-noise. (Fabiane M. Borges)
