Amplifications: poetic migration, auditory memory

Amplifications: poetic migration, auditory memory

Carter, Paul, 1951- author

"A personal narrative to sound written by one of the top figures in sound studies and that outlines a new way of thinking about migratory poetics"-- Written by one of the most prominent thinkers in sound studies, Amplifications presents a perspective on sound narrated through the experiences of a sound artist and writer. A work of reflective philosophy, Amplifications sits at the intersection of history, creative practice, and sound studies, recounting this narrative through a series of themes (rattles, echoes, recordings, etc.). Carter offers a unique perspective on migratory poetics, bringing together his own compositions and life's works while using his personal narrative to frame larger theoretical questions about sound and migration
