Hz #19

In the latest issue of Fylkingen’s journal Hz you will find an article of mine, Electronic music archives in the collection of The Swedish Performing Arts Agency. It is a translation from the Swedish original (which contains a few more pictures) from Dokumenterat no. 45. This text supersedes my earlier post on Swedish EAM archives, although the latter has some additional info.

Thanks to Sachiko Hayashi, the editor of Hz, who also contributes an article to this issue, A brief historical overview of Fylkingen’s journals. Thanks also to Isabel Thomson, who checked the translation.

The other articles in Hz #19 are:

Some sound art papers

The papers from the Sound Art Theories Symposium 2011 papers are now available. For those interested in digital archiving, David Grubbs’ paper “‘Remove the Records from Texas’: Parsing Online Archives” discusses two “very different kinds of online archives”, UbuWeb and DRAM (the acronym stands for Database of Recorded American Music, but the archive holds works from other countries as well).

More radio and sound art
