Our best of the web finds this week include social zombies on Facebook, foley karaoke on Resonance FM and London’s overthrow (x4) on just about every corner of the city. By Lighthouse Artistic Director Juha van 't Zelfde.

PHILIP JECK LIVE
A magical performance by one of my musical heroes, turntablist and composer Philip Jeck, live at Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ, in Amsterdam.

FOLEY KARAOKE
By Barnaby Smyth, recorded at last year’s Lighthouse event The Sound of Story.

UNDERNEATH THE NOISE
Beautiful, poignant film documenting how the lack of government funding for British basketball is stifling the opportunities for young players. With music by JME.

SOCIAL ZOMBIES
“A Dutch artist is compiling thousands of fake Facebook profiles, all named after soldiers who fought in the US revolution in the 18th century.” – by Zoe Kleinman for BBC News

An accelerationist response by artist Constant Dullaart: an affective army of social zombies. I like.

NEW FROM KNIVES
“I made these tracks on a MacBook, making me 100% guilty of perpetuating fatally exploitative labor practices in countries so far away that I can’t see the human cost.” – d’Eon in The FADER.

Another artist, d’Eon, responding to the human cost of corporate greed with a beautiful new EP released on Kuedo’s Knives label.

LONDON’S OVERTHROW
Author China Miéville has written a new introduction to his seminal 2012 essay ‘London’s Overthrow’, “a diagnostic snapshot of the city between riots and Olympics.”

A proposal by architects SelgasCano to turn a south London car park into 800 creative workspaces.

ART SPACE REJECTED
“The big issue is affordable spaces for creative people – especially artists. Over the past decade we’ve seen a slow decimation of [art and design] studios across London, and we have to fight back.” – Second Home co-founder Rohan Silva, in Dezeen.

Another kind of London’s overthrow in action, 1 of 4.

“Visitors to the garden bridge in London will be tracked by their mobile phone signals and supervised by staff with powers to take people’s names and addresses and confiscate and destroy banned items, including kites and musical instruments, according to a planning document.” – by Peter Walker, The Guardian
