Journal of Sonic Studies

We are proud to announce that the 13th issue of the Journal of Sonic Studies (http://sonicstudies.org) is online, entitled “Acoustic Ephemeralities.”

This issue was prepared by guest editors Monika Dommann, Boris Previšić, and Marianne Sommer, and discusses the specifically ephemeral qualities of the acoustic and the relationship between “micro- and macroephemeralities” in the modern age. Three focal points will be explicitly highlighted: the functions of media, music, and the sciences as generators of acoustic paradigms.

In addition, this issue contains several musical commentaries, sonic interventions, and Sound-Essays, created by Michel Roth, Hannes Seidl, and Lucas Niggli.
