Participating: Mattias Sköld - KMH Royal College of Music and KTH Royal Institute of Technology
The publication Sonic Writing is the result of a research project exploring the materials used in musical practice. This is done by looking at today’s technologies for music in light of Western musical development throughout history, going from material inscriptions in musical instruments and symbolic inscription on paper to the signal inscriptions of recordings and the digital writing today. This seminar provides an overview of the monograph published as the final result of Magnusson’s research project.
