On the Potential of Limited Order

€ 10.00

Following its German publication, Marc Schwegler’s essay Über das Potenzial begrenzter Ordnungen now appears in an English translation by N. Cyril Fischer and a completely re-worked design by Dorothee Dähler and Kaj Lehmann. The essay begins with a consideration of the conceptual framework for Andrea Taeggi’s album Noméri— Tere, a link to the digital version of which is included in the publication.

In his text, Schwegler reflects on current tendencies in music and sound art concerned with romanticizing the self-expression of a constructed Other, both of objects and sound itself. In a tour de force through the history of modern Western thought, the essay draws from structuralism and phenomenology to argue for a strictly anti-essentialist ontology of sound.
