Thesis: The field of sound is the site and the means of the Militant Sound Investigation. Regardless whether analogue or digital, the record gives object form to an undifferentiated field of sound. Through both magnetic particles and binary code, experience enters into the record and becomes available to be repeated and analyzed. What initially sounded like undifferentiated registers acquires through repetition and analysis a different texture of audibility. It is as if need, demand, desire have been rendered concrete. Militant Sound Investigation, simply put, derives from a practice of listening that intervenes upon the presumed fidelity of the audio recording. ...

“241508.pdf” is a generic, noise-based post-book reading environment. It is an effortless translation of the text Seven Controlled Vocabularies by the poet Tan Lin into an mp3 file. As a record that obscures the legibility of its source material, it is best put on and forgotten about or used as source material for further derivations. It is a book alternately compressed or decompressed to roughly 1 hour and 6 minutes and written as it is listened to. Originally downloaded freely from Lulu.com, a self-publishing platform, SCV appears to currently only be freely available as a Chinese [Google] translation (at http://is.gd/bP4Ys) ...

François J. Bonnet talks about The Order of Sounds: A Sonorous Archipelago, his book on the philosophy of sound and listening, explaining the motivation behind its examination of modes of listening and its mapping of plural sonic ontologies, and expanding on some of the concepts he introduces in order to take account of the ‘schizological’ nature of sound. The podcast concludes with an exclusive track by Bonnet’s alter-ego Kassel Jaeger. Music used in this podcast: Kassel Jaeger, ‘Campo Del Cielo’, from Deltas (Editions Mego).

This book is based on the performance Batsong, rehearsals for an audioplay, which took place at APF LAB in New York, March 2009. This performance was an attempt to tell the story of a female singer, plagued by the inability to hear her voice objectively. I wanted to depict a narrative about failed perspective through sound but, before we began, had no idea how to develop a situation to render this failure. Using scattered pages of dialogue, monologue, actions and instructions I’d written—along with lists of objects for imitating sounds, one small room and a stationary recording device with one microphone—four ...

Nikita Gale and Alexander Provan are joined by Derica Shields, a writer, researcher, and cultural worker living in London. She speaks about her book-length oral history of Black experiences of the welfare state, “A Heavy Nonpresence,” and the value of listening to Black peoples’ accounts and analyses of their own lives. Shields reflects on her effort to share the stories of Black people who are mistreated and monitored by the state, while also being made to feel that they should be grateful for receiving the assistance to which they’re entitled. Her work shows how, in Britain, liberal nostalgia for the ...

This file is essentially her first audio recording that I’ve decided to make public, which is akin to putting her first photo online. As a Deaf mother, sharing these sounds is a very personal gesture.

Image description is a practice that is often associated with creating accessibility for blind people. While, according to some people, image descriptions are supposed to be objective accounts of what is happening in a photo or film, some disabled artists are using image descriptions to critique other forms of inaccessibility. On this episode of Contra*, I talk to hard-of-hearing artist Liza Sylvestre about her work, which draws on methods of image description and film captioning to critique popular films, and with them, the broader culture of audism, which assumes that everyone has equal access to hearing sound.
