For its 2nd edition, which will take place the 12th and 13th of october in Marseille (France), Technomancie is looking for electroacoustic, radiophonic or sound-art related composition exploring the theme of new digital territories decolonization.

The stakes of new human colonies are no longer located in the cosmos or in the deep deposit of lands and oceans.
It is today in the cracks of technological territories (cyberspace, network games, social media, augmented reality) where global companies and startups shape the world of tomorrow to the image of a portfolio of shares.
For its next edition of Technomancie, the artists collective deletere (http://deletere.org/) want to open up this problematic by associating other artists to this reflection.

This problematic will be addressed following 6 topics:
- Techno-surveillance
- Popular internet against dominant social network
- Free media and post-truth
- Gender and dictatorship of the bodies in the media
- Ecocides provoked by new technologies
- Decolonisation of the radio spectrum - The stakes of the DIY practice.
