>The warp and the woof is the opening of a field. Shifting from
>structuralism to poststructuralism, from system to speaking subject,
>from work to text: this puts into play new possibilities for thinking
>about sound, music, noise and listening, about the structure of
>audition, and about the listening, responding subject. Nietzsche
>diagnosed post-Socratic philosophy as fundamentally and constitutively
>unmusical, however the theory of the text signals the closure of that
>era. There opens a series of deconstructions of the voice in philosophy
>and in the metaphysics of everyday life, and of attempts to change the
>object of analysis itself, sparking genealogies of disciplinary power,
>desire and lines of flight. Although the writers evoked here (Kristeva,
>Barthes, Derrida, Foucault, Deleuze) only rarely themselves evoke those
>of the Frankfurt School, writers slightly out of phase in nation and
>period, nevertheless these writings in their reflections on language,
>technology, subjectivity and power weave a field for thinking musically.
>
>Papers on:
>
>New music theories, new musical objects, theorising through music and
>noise. Extra-diegesis: sound and the moving image. Installation and
>sonic art. Radio. Philosophy of rhythm: musical morphologies as modes of
>experience, memory, thought and novel perception. Acoustic cartographs:
>local music cultures, dissemination. Considering historical soundscapes.
>Grain, interpretation, accent, translation, voice. Acoustical
>technologies, reproduction. media.
