Thanks so much for your extra effort in making this presentation! This is obviously an important archive that you have built and your observations based on studying it provide an interesting historical narrative. I hope this archive will find a public venue one day and if I can somehow help in that effort, let me know.

More immediately, I want to encourage you to post this video to either YouTube or Vimeo. I would certainly be assigning it to my students for viewing when covering the topic of sound art. It would take minimal effort and help your talk have a bigger impact as we share your work.

Hope you will consider it! Cheers.

Thanks for your kind words. I was really looking forward to the conference and look forward to seeing the documentation as it’s put together.

The plan is to eventually make the archive public – as things come together for the ‘micro-histories’ book, that is the goal.

I’m considering how to make the video public, the content of the talk is part of a chapter that’s coming out next year, so I’m talking with the editors to see what we can do. in the meantime, for your students, i’d be happy to send you a copy.

Are you coming to the sound art conference at NYU in november? I’ll be presenting a modified version of this talk there as well.

Thanks for writing!

No, I will not be at NYU. I actually come from more of a computer music background. I am in Bergen this semester as a Fulbright scholar working on a research project.

I just saw the conference was happening here and figured it was a good way to learn more about other sound art traditions. Boy, was I right!

I would love to stay in the loop for this world. Do you have any suggestions for mailing lists, group or other sources that announce sound art conferences or events?

We can continue to discuss the video via private message if that is better. I am just a big fan of making lectures available online, as you can see if you visit my website. I can understand though if the publisher issue complicates this for you.
