Sound Thinking
(Concept: Bernd Herzogenrath)

Abstract

This contribution presents a methodological and political approach to thinking about sound and the senses. Its background is a critical reading of seminal research on sound (Helmholtz, Fletcher, Beranek et.al.) and a reconceptualization of concepts of sound in relation to multisensory concepts of experienced corporeality as well as the materialist dispositive in which sensory experience is situated. This leads to a critique of the senses which allows to subtly describe, understand and finally to evaluate forms of embodiment as well as the imaginary impact of technical apparatuses of the western world. As a consequence, forms of resistance which transcend any mere metaphorical or bourgeois apotheosis of resonance might be derived from these insights.
