Ad Hoc Rises From Altered Zones' Ashes

Posted by on Tue, Jan 31, 2012 at 11:14 AM

Former editors Emilie Friedlander and Ric Leichtung from the defunct Altered Zones blog will be launching a new online publication and quarterly zine made of paper that you can hold in your beefy mitts called Ad Hoc—with help from a Kickstarter campaign. Their goal is to raise $33,333 (I see what they did there) by March 5. Friedlander and Leichtung describe Ad Hoc thus:

[A]n underground music and visual culture publication created for and by a community of music lovers with a shared ethos: that of building the world you want to see using the materials at your disposal. A collective of ten tastemaking music blogs from all over the world, Ad Hoc is a daily destination for MP3s, videos, mixes, interviews, artist's writings, and cultural commentary— curated for quality, and with an emphasis on emerging artists and musical movements that best exemplify the new grassroots, Internet-fueled DIY.
