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 Recordingand Mourning in the Age of
