Noise, water, meat : a history of sound in the arts by Douglas Kahn( Book )

29 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this, interdisciplinary history and theory of sound in the arts, Douglas Kahn reads the twentieth century by listening to it - to the emphatic and exceptional sounds of modernism and those on the cusp of postmodernism, recorded sound, noise, silence, the fluid sounds of immersion and dripping, and the meat voices of viruses, screams, and bestial cries. Focusing on Europe in the first half of the century and the United States in the postwar years, Kahn explores aural activities in literature, music, visual arts, theater, and film. Placing aurality at the center of the history of the arts, he revisits key artistic questions, listening to the sounds that drown out the politics and poetics that generated them. Artists discussed include Antonin Artaud, George Brecht, William Burroughs, John Cage, Sergei Eisenstein, Fluxus, Allan Kaprow, Michael McClure, Yoko Ono, Jackson Pollock, Lugi Russolo, and Dziga Vertov."--Jacket

Mainframe experimentalism : early computing and the foundations of the digital arts( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book challenges the conventional wisdom that the digital arts arose out of Silicon Valley's technological revolutions in the 1970s. In fact, in the 1960s, a diverse array of artists, musicians, poets, writers, and filmmakers around the world were engaging with mainframe and mini-computers to create innovative new artworks that contradict the stereotypes of computer art. Juxtaposing the original works alongside scholarly contributions by well-established and emerging scholars from several disciplines, this book demonstrates that the radical and experimental aesthetics and political and cultural engagements of early digital art stand as precursors for the mobility among technological platforms, artistic forms, and social sites that has become commonplace today

Earth Sound Earth Signal is a study of energies in aesthetics and the arts, from the birth of modern communications in the nineteenth century to the global transmissions of the present day.
