Dr. Sebastien Darchen has studied the electronica music scene in Brisbane. This research has been published in the Sydney Morning Herald.
This project will expand to an edited book to be published with Palgrave Publishing. The book will analyse the development of underground electronica scenes in cities where a sub-genre of electronica has emerged (e.g., trip-hop genre in Bristol, UK with international acts such as Massive Attack and Portishead). The book will also feature emerging electronica scenes in cities like Beijing (China), Jakarta (Indonesia) and Moscow (Russia).
