While Youtube is a force in the media arts world, it isn't very often that a Youtube video will cause me to jump into email to try getting a podcast guest. But it really happened with this video:
Christoph Cox did a lecture about Sound Art (sponsored by the Barnes Foundation) that really caught my attention. Only later did I realize that he was also responsible for the book Audio Culture, which was very influential for me in art school.
In our chat, Christoph explores the tie-in between philosophy and sound art, discusses the temporal nature of sound art, and also considers the importance of sound within the art world. We also get off on a few tangents, which is the nature of a good conversation.
You can find out a lot more about Christoph at his faculty link:
Talking about the difference between sound art and music-making is an interesting debate, and really opens as many questions about 'what we do' as it provides answers. This was a great discussion, and I feel honored to have had a chance to share this podcast. I hope you enjoy it, and find it as inspiring as I did!
