Experimental Sound and Radio by Allen S. Weiss
Book DescriptionArt making and criticism have focused mainly on the visual media. This book, which originally appeared as a special issue of TDR/The Drama Review, explores the myriad aesthetic, cultural, and experimental possibilities of radiophony and sound art. Taking the approach that there is no single entity that constitutes "radio," but rather a multitude of radios, the essays explore various aspects of its apparatus, practice, forms, and utopias. The approaches include historical, political, popular cultural, archeological, semiotic, and feminist. Topics include the formal properties of radiophony, the disembodiment of the radiophonic voice, aesthetic implications of psychopathology, gender differences in broadcast musical voices and in narrative radio, erotic fantasy, and radio as an electronic memento mori.The book includes a new piece by Allen Weiss on the origins of sound recording.Contributors John Corbett, Tony Dove, Rene Farabet, Richard Foreman, Rev.

Books By Author Allen S. Weiss
Grain of the Clay, Hardback (November 2016)
People collect to connect with the past, personal and historic, to exercise some small and perfect degree of control over a carefully chosen portion of the world. The Grain of the Clay is Allen S. Weiss's engaging exploration of the meaning and practice of collecting through his relationship with Japanese ceramics.
Zen Landscapes, Hardback (September 2013)
Featuring 100 stunning colour photographs, Zen Landscapes explains how Japanese gardens must be approached according to the play of scale, surroundings and seasons, as well as in relation to other arts, thus revealing them as living landscapes rather than abstract designs.
Leonardo Drew: Existed, Hardback (April 2009)
Leonardo Drew's formally abstract and emotionally charged compositions are made to resemble the detritus of everyday life, have combined qualities of painting and sculpture. His work has an aesthetic authority that is deeply embedded in the theory and practice of mid-20th-century abstraction. This book follows the life and work of Leonardo Drew.
