Field Diagram (new)

This diagram is an improvement on the “category map.” I am now referring to it as a “field diagram” because it is visually mapping out my field of research rather than disconnected “categories.” It lays out a field of research and relationships within the field. A cyclical and diagrammatic flow contextualize a series of concepts within this specific project – “Networked Music Cultures” (for the time being).


The Flaming Lips – Boombox Experiments (1996)

The Flaming Lips – Parking Lot Experiments (1996)

Some recent things

David Byrne – “I realized that you could turn a space into a musical instrument by attaching machines to the various parts of the structure. We tend to think that music, sound design, is generally proceeding down digital paths and that its about new forms of software, digital amplifications, and manipulating music.”

Matthew Herbert – “Our responsibility as musicians, if we care about how music is heard and where its heard and even why its heard, we need to think specifically about why it should be relevant.”

Max Neuhaus – “This idea that music could be made another way. This idea of really activating a lay public in inventing their music.”

Brian Eno & David Byrne – My Life in the Bush of Ghosts – 01 – America is Waiting

Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon – On the Run

The Books – 07 – Chain Of Missing Links
