Reading Around Sound – 23/05/15, 3pm


Join us at the Audio Foundation for the first Auckland Reading Around Sound – a monthly reading group meeting. Each month we’ll meet up and discuss specific texts that present ideas, thoughts, and theories relating to sound activity. All are welcome to attend!

This month’s reading is an excerpt from Listening Through The Noise: The Aesthetics of Experimental Electronic Music by Joanna Demers. The reading in question is Chapter 4 – Maximal Objects in Drone Music, Dub Techno, and Noise (please read this text before coming along to the group). Link to PDF here:

For online discussion around these texts, and if you’d like to suggest a text for upcoming consideration please join the Reading Around Sound Facebook group:

Reading Around Sound is a monthly reading group that endeavours to facilitate theoretical and critical engagement with contemporary sonic practices and related issues through close reading, and ongoing discussion and debate. It is a shared initiative between the Auricle and the Audio Foundation with monthly events in both Auckland and Christchurch.

Special thanks to The Auricle and Richard B. Keys for organising this reading group series (, and to Sam Longmore who will be leading the Auckland Reading Around Sound group discussion.
