Our best of the net this week. Finds include location-specific information for refugees, a short film about being a "ghost in the system" and an "exploration into the new acoustic landscape of war". By Lighthouse Artistic Director Juha van 't Zelfde.

SAGA, MAT DRYHURST
Juha: Mat Dryhurst created SAGA to give artists more control over how their work is experienced and presented online. Like a more decentralised, personal Soundcloud or Vimeo embed – where the artist is in charge, not the major labels.

For installation, setup instructions and contributions, find Saga on GitHub.

HITO STEYERL & KASSEM MOSSE PERFORMANCE
Juha: Hito Steyerl and Kassem Mosse are to perform a posthumous homage to filmmaker Harun Farocki at the Reina Sofia museum on November 10. Mosse’s performance is described as "an exploration into the new acoustic landscape of war – between military noise and sounds from consumer devices.” I didn’t know the acclaimed techno producer did this kind of thing. Would love to see this.

REFUGEEINFO.EU
Juha: Accessible by mobile phone, this service provides up-to-date, location-specific information to refugees arriving in Europe.

Juha: Beautiful new music from Yoneda Lemma (aka Katrina Burch), a guest speaker and performer at The Long Progress Bar in 2015.

HE WORKS THE LONG NIGHTS
“A man whose job places him on the fringes of English society explains his day-to-day life. Taking us through his daily routine, we witness the boredom and repetition that comes with being a ghost in the system.”

Juha: Nice short by young director Luke Carlisle, a regular collaborator with Elijah (co-founder of influential grime label Butterz). With music by PAN record label artist Visionist.

Russia Today’s logo says it all

FUN EXERCISE
Juha: Try reading this article in The New York Times as if it were on RT (Russia Today), and Russia the US. Would you then call this propaganda?

NEW PROGRESS BAR POSTER
Juha: Graphic designer Michael Oswell is an important reason why I enjoy organising Progress Bar events at Lighthouse.

NOTHING ABOUT US, WITHOUT US
Juha: ‘10 Things You Need to Consider If You Are An Artist Looking To Work With Our Community’ offers an important and very useful reminder for all of us, not just artists.

ÅZONE FUTURES MARKET
“Åzone Futures Market is a Guggenheim online exhibition that enables you to take a position on the future of a world increasingly shaped by emerging technologies.”

Juha: An interesting (and quite accelerationist) presentation of radical thinking and making. Great group of people involved, including Benedict Singleton, Jenna Sutela and Metahaven.

ENDGAME
Juha: Great mix by South-London producer Endgame. Read an interview with him over at Fader.
