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.

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.
