We are pleased to announce a new edition of the
open access journal Culture Machine:
CULTURE MACHINE 9 (2007)
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?
