Sounding the Abject

Sounding the Abject

Guest lecture in Marsha Ginsberg's 'Ugly Aestehtics' class.

In this session, we look at ugliness from a music and sound perspective - from the ambient abject of sonic hauntology to the manneristic grotesque in music theatre.

What have noise, dissonance, bricolage and uncanny technologies brought to the aesthetics and concepts of the sonic imagination over the past century?
