MARCH, journal of art and strategy (2020–)

13 May 2022, dusan

“MARCH embraces publishing as an act of protest to address the critical social and political issues of our time. MARCH emerges at a moment of deepening institutional crisis and is intent on advancing new forms of publication, critique, and public action. We are a partisan publication: we initiate, articulate, advance, and defend prefigurative ideas about what art is, could and should be. We believe in the latent potential critique carries to transform our art worlds, our institutions, our means of expression and experimentation, and ourselves. We are con-temporary, with and in our time—an archive of the present and proposition towards the future—where our ideas, actions and form embodies this insurrection.

MARCH features an annual print edition alongside an active online platform commissioning essays, interviews, and experimental critical writing with a global perspective. ”

CENSE Almanac: Central European Network for Sonic Ecologies (2021)

4 November 2021, dusan

“The Central European Network for Sonic Ecologies (CENSE) is an informal network of individual voices coming from various backgrounds. We propose this emerging network to fill the need of fostering more perceptive and conscious thinking and solutions, addressing developments in the social and cultural fields of Central Europe (and beyond) related not only to sound art, ecomusicology, and sound per se, while keeping a central focus on deep environmental and social changes.”

Its first publication features a survey of CENSE members and friends about sonic ecology, offering a springboard for the formation of a framework; a mind map composed of the various ideas, statements, positions, and attitudes of around thirty people. In addition, three essays on the story of environmental sound in Czechoslovakia, Poland and Hungary are included.”

Trevor Wishart: Audible Design: A Plain and Easy Introduction to Practical Sound Composition (1994)

25 May 2021, dusan

“This book provides detailed description of the craft of sound transformation using software instruments, with non-mathematical explanations and recorded music examples of all processes.

Many of these processes (e.g. sound morphing, spectral stretching, waveset distortion, sound shredding, grain manipulation, moving harmonic field filters) were first developed by Trevor Wishart, either at IRCAM, or as part of the Composers Desktop Project.”
