Parution : Sonic Urbanism: The Political Voice

The Political Voice is the second publication in the Sonic Urbanism series edited by &beyond for Theatrum Mundi.

The first one is Sonic Urbanism: Resonances in a New Field. TM / &Beyond Collective. London, 2019. ISBN: 978-1916-186408


This second volume explores the political voice as a particular sonic phenomenon, asking how and where it is possible to have a ‘voice’ in urban politics, the relationship between material and metaphorical readings of political speech, and how voices can be amplified or silenced in cities. Responses explored vocal contestations and noisy citizenship, technologies that transmit or transform voices, and the ways that sound art and experimental music stage collective voicings.

In an experimental progression from the first volume of Sonic Urbanism, Sonic Urbanism: The Political Voice is published both in print and online. Both versions can be enjoyed separately in their entirety, but they are also designed to complement one another. This approach has allowed for the commissioning of audio pieces as well as texts, and the publication of additional sounds and songs, voices and videos, to augment the written contributions.
