New Issue of the Journal of Sonic Studies
In September, the eighth issue of the Journal of Sonic Studies will be online, dealing with sounds and/from outer space.
JSS8 contains an exclusive interview with Douglas Kahn, author of Earth Sound Earth Signal (University of California Press, 2013) and an audio-visual art work by Swedish experimental composer Karl-Birger Blomdahl, called Altisonans. The work is from 1966 but is now first presented online. JSS8 contains seven other contributions from renowned scholars, among them Trevor Pinch, James Wierzbicki, and Axel Volmar.
Since 2011 Dr. Marcel Cobussen and Dr. Vincent Meelberg are running the online, open access Journal of Sonic Studies (JSS). The journal provides a platform for theorists and artists who would like to present relevant work regarding auditory culture. The primary aim of the journal is to think through and problematize auditory culture, in order to understand the impact and importance of sound for and in contemporary culture.
