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.

“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) ...

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 ...
