[Commlist] Journal of Sonic Studies - Issue 18 online: Materials of Sound II - published

Thu Jul 18 16:35:32 GMT 2019

*Journal of Sonic Studies - Issue 18 online: Materials of Sound II (guest editor: Caleb Kelly)*

This is the second issue of the Journal of Sonic Studies ( <>) focused on the Materials of Sound. In the first issue (see issue no. 16 <>) the papers were focused on creative sonic production that engaged materials. In this issue, material sounds are found within cultures, cities, religions, movement, environmental catastrophe, and the murmurs of the crowd. The authors hear these sounds that, for the most part, are already in the world. These sonic occurrences form the basis of a developing understanding of the materials involved.

By thinking about sound as more than its physical properties, more than a series of waves, we can begin to learn about complex material realities. The essays in both journal issues depart from the question: what can sound tell us about materials?
