LMJ25: The Politics of Sonic Art
Volume 25 of Leonardo Music Journal addresses the role of politics in the creation and dissemination of music and related sonic arts, especially in those genres employing new technological tools. Papers by composers and sound artists cover such topics as:
* Creative activity under precarious conditions in zones of war, repression and censorship
* The mechanisms by which sonic art can represent and communicate political content without recourse to language.
* How gendered, racial, cultural, and class privileges operate in technologically driven music.
* The relationship of phonography and sound walks to environmental activism.
* The ecological politics of computers and other of short-lifespan materials (recycling vs. landfills).
* The development of alternative music controllers in response to disabilities.
