The Journal of Sonic Studies has opened a call for papers for their upcoming issue on “materials of sound” edited by Caleb Kelly. Deadline for abstracts is 31 March. Deadline for papers is 31 July.
“Materiality is a constant and contested topic in contemporary art. In recent years the experimental sound arts have shifted away from digital and post-production sound in a turn back to materials. Sound in these practices is not a transparent medium played through hidden speakers, instead it is employed to investigate materials and is itself produced through materials that have various histories, including social/cultural/political, art historical, geological/ecological and electrical.”
