The Allegorical Power Series
Antiopic's Allegorical Power Series was a series of online MP3 releases issued monthly from June through December 2003. This series was meant to address the possibilities and roles of abstract or experimental music as social and political response; it attempted to provide a forum and space for artists to present new work as protest and as an exploration of the meaning and potential of sound art in the context of and as response to global injustice.
The series was completed with the seventh release in December 2003. All sixty audio tracks will remain online and available indefinitely.
