THE NOISE OF BEING
What does it mean to be human, to be part of a world that is an ever-changing network? Published on the occasion of the 2017 Sonic Acts Festival, this book endeavours to piece together the dissonance produced by the participants and spectators of the festival, whether at the conference or in the museums, clubs, and cinemas. This is the noise of technology, capitalism, hackers, bots, communication breakdowns, humanity, clouds, and so much more. With essays by Nina Power, Louis Henderson, Daniel Rourke, and Rick Dolphijn, interviews with Ytasha Womack, Jennifer Gabrys, Eyal Weizman, and Metahaven, plus contributions by Joey Holder, Ingrid Burrington, and more.
