Relevant to "Affect Theory" and "Sound Studies" Readers 14 octobre 2014
Par Joel Daniel Parker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I think there is an audience for this book that would appreciate it for its ability to connect several key topics, namely, affect theory, sound studies, and 'sonic warfare'. Please don't be put off by the fact that the author is an electronic music producer, as that is the least important thing to know about this book.

First of all, it is useful for trying to better understand "affect theory," which is actually a reaction against 'post-modernism'. As such, it is actually trying to go beyond the circular semantic arguments that post-modernism seemed to constantly produce and look for concrete ways to understand a variety of things through inter-disciplinary studies that bridge the sciences and humanities. For those interested in 'affect', this book draws on the main sources for this theory, which come mainly from the subjects of philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, and anthropology. Affect theory certainly has its critics (who probably outnumber its proponents), but Goodman puts his two cents into the debate in favor of it as a useful framework for understanding things that affect the mind and body at the same time.

Secondly, Goodman tries to explore noise and its effects on the human body and mind from several angles, trying to bridge the psycho and physical by arguing (if I understood correctly) that a lot of factors come into play when sound is used as a non-lethal weapon to control populations and individuals. His ideas on "bass materialism" seem to be original, at least to me, and they help you conceive of sonic warfare as a use of noise that can be considered deeply unsettling, if not painful in some contexts, while in other contexts, deeply pleasurable and stimulating. Thus, his notion of noise as a potential (problematic) force for creating an "ecology of fear" is worth considering.

Thirdly, the subject of sonic warfare itself is a fascination topic to many, I assume, and while it take a lot of active reading to understand what Goodman is trying to say here, I think it is possibly because he doesn't want to be accused of being a proponent of the use of noise to kill or injure other humans. If you want to learn more about this subject, some interesting cases can be found in the book "Sound Targets" by Jonathan Pieslak.

Goodman's interdisciplinary agenda means that he doesn't fully explain any particular element he's putting into the mix, which can be frustrating. And yes, the writing is convoluted at times. A better introduction to all of the theory he is planning to use, followed by clear applications of the theory would have been better than the sort of random uses and reuses of theories that seem always incomplete and unresolved, and rarely fully applicable to the examples at hand.

Finally, some of the sources he uses are more obscure than he would seem to make them, and I couldn't always follow up on them or find them in a good university library.

Fascinating concepts 10 août 2013
Par chawmpee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Despite the heavily academic language (lots of multi-syllable words that are often unnecessary), this book explores a range of fascinating concepts with rigorous detail. The author also makes music as Kode9 & runs the Hyperdub record label, so check this book out if you're a fan of electronic music, the science of acoustics or dystopian visions of the future.

Not as bad as other reviews would have you believe... 8 novembre 2014
Par arigato - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
...however, there are some fundamental problems with the way this book is outlined. First, the author does not note who he is quoting without subscript - it should not be difficult for the reader to locate who is saying what within a piece of nonfiction writing. Secondly, the author writes in tangents with no relatable frame to the general idea of sonic warfare, so the piece hits and misses in spots.

I highly recommend those who read this piece have some knowledge of sonic arts prior to reading as well as the uncanny and experimental sound. It will make reading the piece much more relatable and make it a more interesting read.

Fantastic book 6 février 2011
Par Art Council - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book was published under the name of Steve Goodman (a lecturer in Music Culture at the School of Sciences, Media, and Cultural Studies at the University of East London), not of Kode9. So it is not a tutorial on how to make wobbly bass in Massive. True, because of its subject matter it can be at times heavy on the SAT phraseology, but I seriously doubt the usefulness of writing a vibrational ontology for kindergarteners, especially if that ontology is explicitly developed in the context of Leibniz, Deleuze and Guattari.

If you are looking for a fresh perspective on sonic weaponry, piracy, pop music as torture, sound systems, earworms, crowd control, and the Big Bang then this is the book for you.

If you are looking for "a pretty interesting philosophical read", try Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations. Wait, maybe that too is "over-written", "quickly filling and hard to digest", so better try Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Crafts: An A-to-Z Guide with Detailed Instructions and Endless Inspiration.

And if you are looking to practice your reviewing skills without having to read anything, go to Youtube and join the pissing contest coming up with the next lackluster metaphor for face-metling griminess when commenting on the latest Datsik track.

PS. Read the editorial reviews. If you feel like you don't understand them, save your money and buy instead Kode9's Memories of the Future.

Unbearable 15 mai 2013
Par Douglas Groothuis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is the worst written book I have read in 40 years of serious reading in cultural criticism. How any editor let his by is a dark mystery I do not want to explore.

Cultural criticism can be written clear. Consider Neil Postman. This, however, is replete with:

1. Convoluted sentences, some of which approach comedy in their pretentiousness.
2. Adjectival overload
3. Adjectival meaninglessness
4. Over use of adjectives such as "deployed," which is also misused.
5. Compound words without hyphens, mot of which are unintelligible.
6. Over use of other sources. The author seems to have no original ideas. Or, if he does, I have no idea what they are, given the maddening opacity of the writing.

One could go on, but why bother with this execrable exercise in ugliness?
