13.02.2017 Poetics and Politics of Scientific Sound Archives [Poetiken und Politiken wissenschaftlicher Sound-Archive]

Ausgabe #7

Scientific experiments with documenting and archiving sound resulted in the creation of diverse techniques which were eventually used beyond the sciences, too. By addressing the poetics and politics of scientific sound archives an institution comes into focus which is at the intersection of art and science. While Viktoria Tkaczyk analyzed sound recordings from the perspective of cultural studies, Gill Aubry presented his artistic work with sound archives. Here, the evening is documented by photographs, documentation of Gilles Aubry’s works and the transcription of Aubry’s lecture.
