<nettime-ann> Culture Machine 9: 'Recordings'

(Apologies for cross-postings)

We are pleased to announce a new edition of the open access journal
Culture Machine:


Edited by Paul Hegarty and Gary Genosko

The latest issue of Culture Machine asks: What is the current state of
aural art media in ?an era of digital reproduction??

Contributors to ?Recordings? consider the residues of technologies, the
anachronisms, the failures, the less-than-excellent, the dated, the
outmoded, and even the yet-to-work.  Taking into account the material
(or dematerialised) art object, they also ask about collecting cultures,
recycling, destroyed and broken media (the TV thrown from the window? ),
new broadcast media, turntablism, noise, radio and its avatars,
podcasting, any casting, the range of material ?supports? (vinyl, the 8
track, betamax, different audio files).

Has the digital and informational swamped the world in a mass encoded
simulation?  What and where are the resistances?  Are they within or
outside of the digital?  In the junk heap of analogue machines? In Ebay
dreams? What are the material forms/formats that offer critical models,
avant-gardism, metacommentary and so on? What is the status of the art
commodity, non-commodity or hypercommodity?

The ?Recordings? issue features:

* Eugene Thacker, ?Pulse Demons?

* Greg Hainge, ?Vinyl is Dead, Long Live Vinyl: The Work of Recording
and Mourning in the Age of Digital Reproduction?

* Paul Hegarty, ?The Hallucinatory Life of Tape?

*  Jerome Hansen, ?Mapping the Studio (Fat Chance Matmos): Sonic
Culture, Visual Arts and the Mediations of the Artist?s Workplace?

* Gary Genosko, ?8 Track Rhapsody?

of Australian Electronica?

* Dan Hays, Painting in the Light of Digital Reproduction?
