What is Cesura?

Cesura//Acceso is a not-for-profit journal working alongside a few sympathetic and generous contributors to try and make the project a reality. We are based at MayDay Rooms in London, who have supported us with a space to work over the past year.

Since the inception of the project, over the course of nearly 12 months, we have been encouraged by the wide reaching support we have had for the journal.

Emerging from our involvement with music, aesthetics, autonomist related politics and contemporary struggles - the development of the project has been a process of learning from the varied communities of musical, poetic, and political practice we have been fortunate enough to be in dialogue with.

Publishing Cesura//Acceso is essential to sustain the energies of these ideas, words, sounds and relationships and also an opportunity to share - both locally and more widely - the discourse that we hope the project catalyses.

Why we need your help, and where will the money go

We do not have any funding.

The research, design and production have all been done by by Cesura but we are asking for £1900 for the initial printing and distribution of the first issue of the journal.

Your backing does two things: it helps make Cesura//Acceso a reality and it gets the journal into the hands of the people who want to read it.

Cesura//Acceso is self published and therefore we don't have the resources of a large publisher. We are subject to the common constraints - lack of time, money and resources. Making Cesura//Acceso a reality needs your support.

Specifically, your backing pays for skilled and experienced people to do the following work:

- obtaining ISBN numbers 

- Litho printing in the UK by an affordable, sustainable printing company. 

- creating and formatting e-Book versions 

- distribution in the UK and Europe

How will the journal look and feel?

We have a clear idea of the form of the first issue of Cesura//Acceso. The journal will be uniquely and sensitively designed and printed, and (after a slight delay) will also be available digitally online, for free.

The details of the design are as follows: Size/extent: slightly smaller than A5 - 185x130mm; 250 pages Print Production: Litho printed, perfect bound, 1000 copies. Digital download: PDF/Epub

Distribution 

To begin with physical copies of the journal will be distributed by Anagram Books to venues mostly within the UK (independent bookshops/music venues/art galleries/libraries/self-run spaces and conferences). We plan on developing distribution connections in Europe/US and beyond. Elsewhere the journal will be freely available as a PDF published online one month after printing.
