Electronic Landscapes: Music, Space and Resistance in Detroit is “a celebration of Detroit artists who sustain community through making space”, explains co-authors Isaac Diggs and Edward Hillel.

It features photos of the homes and studios of artists including Stacey “Hotwaxx” Hale, UR’s Mike Banks and Theo Parrish, as well as record shops and locales across the city.

Alongside the book, an exhibition of the same name will be held at Detroit art space The Heidelberg Project in May 2020.

Electronic Landscapes: Music, Space and Resistance in Detroit follows Diggs and Hillel’s 2014 book and exhibition 125th: Time in Harlem.
