Allegorical Power Series

From June through December of 2003, Antiopic published a monthly series of MP3 releases online via the Antiopic website, titled the Allegorical Power Series. According to the Antiopic website, "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."
