Brooklyn Lyceum, 7pm
Christoph Cox, guest Lecturer
Christoph Cox’s talk focuses on some of the philosophical themes raised by his anthology Audio Culture: Readings in Modern Music. In particular, he will discuss two key shifts in contemporary music and sound art: a shift in conceptions of time from what John Cage called ‘time-objects’ to what he called ‘processes’, and the dissolution of ‘music’ into the broader field of ‘noise.’
Post-lecture discussion between Cox and MATA commissionee Micah Silver.
