Noise, Water, Meat: A History of Voice, Sound, and Aurality by Douglas Kahn

By Douglas Kahn

This interdisciplinary heritage and idea of sound within the arts reads the 20th century by way of hearing it--to the emphatic and unprecedented sounds of modernism and people at the cusp of postmodernism, recorded sound, noise, silence, the fluid sounds of immersion and dripping, and the beef voices of viruses, screams, and bestial cries. targeting Europe within the first 1/2 the century and the USA within the postwar years, Douglas Kahn explores aural actions in literature, track, visible arts, theater, and picture. putting aurality on the middle of the historical past of the humanities, he revisits key inventive questions, hearing the sounds that drown out the politics and poetics that generated them. Artists mentioned comprise Antonin Artaud, George Brecht, William Burroughs, John Cage, Sergei Eisenstein, Fluxus, Allan Kaprow, Michael McClure, Yoko Ono, Jackson Pollock, Luigi Russolo, and Dziga Vertov.
