Rotting sounds symposium, September 23+24
Since 2018, the project of artistic research Rotting sounds – Embracing the temporal deterioration of digital audio has been researching transformation processes pertaining to the diverse interrelations of digitally encoded information in the audio domain, its material properties and (human) interpretation within a sociocultural context. This symposium shall provide a room for reflection on the acquired experiences in the course of the project, bring in external viewpoints on the relevant topics and stimulate outlooks beyond the limits of current research.
Rotting sounds is a cooperation between the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, the University of Applied Arts Vienna and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and is funded by the Austria science fund (FWF project AR445).
The symposium will take place in presence at the mdw campus (registration required!) and will also be streamed through http://rottingsounds.org.
