EPISODE LI: Creating New Words from Old Sounds


FEAT: Marcella Ernest, Candace Gala, Leslie Harper, and Daryn McKenny

This podcast looks at how ancestral languages are spoken in today’s changing environment of technology and popular culture. Here, Marcella Ernest leads a discussion considering how Indigenous people are adapting heritage languages to modern times. With an open mind and creative methodologies, Native language communities, activists, scholars, and educators are working to integrate and inspire our heritage languages to continue into the 21st century and beyond. Finding new words with old sounds is intended as a means of both preserving language and helping people to learn it. How do heritage languages change to accommodate new things like computers, cell phones, and popular culture? Can ancestral sounds be translated to create new words?

EPISODE L: Yoshiwara Soundwalk: Taking the Underground to the Floating World


FEAT: Gretchen Jude

Join Gretchen Jude as she performs a soundwalk of the Yoshiwara district in Tokyo. Throughout this soundwalk, Jude offers her thoughts on the history, materiality, and culture of the Yoshiwara, Tokyo’s red-light district. An itinerary is provided below for the curious, as well as a translation of the Ume wa sati ka, intended to help orient listeners to the history of the Yoshiwara. What stories do the sounds of this district help to tell and can they help us to navigate its sordid history?

EPISODE ILIX: Sound and Sexuality in Video Games


FEAT: Milena Droumeva and Aaron Trammell

This week’s podcast questions how identity is coded into the battle cries shouted by characters in video games. By exploring the tools that sound studies provides to understand the various dynamics of identity, this podcast aims to provoke a conversation about how identity is encoded within the design of games. The all too invisible intersection between sound, identity, and code reveals the ways that sound can help explain the interior logic of the games and other digital systems. Here, Milena Droumeva and Aaron Trammell discuss how femininity and sexuality have been coded within game sounds and consider the degree to which these repetitive and objectifying tropes can be resisted by players and designers alike.

EPISODE ILVIII: Languages of Exile


FEAT: David Mollin and Salomé Voegelin

With words stepping backwards from the wave of news coverage, attempting to retrace a moment or point in time, to go back where things began, to the innocuous genesis of a single deliberate decision, the resentment or, in some camps, the war crime, within the continuous ebb and flow. The stepping back breaks up the habit of our clear factual articulation – a clear factual articulation that, in its fact, becomes ignorable as it satisfies the need for fact and its pincer click of tiny precision. This articulation now carries other words, carries them forward from the reversal of the day’s date stamped so firmly and authoritatively on the facts, as if justification itself.

EPISODE ILVII: Finding the Lost Sounds of Kaibah


FEAT: Marcella Ernest

In the early 1960s Native American women had few opportunities and rights as citizens. During this politically charged era, a young Navajo woman, Kay Bennett, or “Kaibah”, defied those restrictions by recording and releasing her own albums. Almost fifty years later, we present this conversation with Rachael Nez, a Navajo scholar and filmmaker, whose research explores “Songs from the Navajo Nation” through Kaibah’s records. Kaibah self-published her own albums until she was signed by Canyon records, wrote and published her own books, and traveled the world performing Navajo music everywhere from the Middle East to Europe. Rachael looks at how Kaibah’s music acts as a site for the circulation of Indigenous knowledge, oral history, and resistance.

EPISODE ILVI: Ruptures in the Soundscape of Disneyland

FEAT: Cynthia Wang and Aaron Trammell

In this podcast, Cynthia Wang shares examples taken from a soundwalk she performed at Disneyland. Disneyland has been an idealized space for the middle-class white American experience, and the aural signals and music used throughout the park encourage visitors to become cultural tourists and to share in this mindset. Here Cynthia considers the moments of rupture that disturb Disney’s controlled soundscape. Join us as we listen for a pathway out of the hyper-consumerist labyrinth of Disney.

EPISODE ILV: Immersion and Synesthesia in Role-Playing Games

FEAT: Nick Mizer

In tabletop role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons players collaboratively and improvisationally create and explore imagined worlds primarily constructed through speech. In this episode Nicholas Mizer explores what it means to bring those imagined worlds into the shared space of play. Through interviews and recordings of games sessions with a dungeonmaster names Liz Larsen, he explores the importance of what Liz calls “color, song, and choice diction,” for kidnapping this reality with the imagined one. This podcast investigates the often sonic and synesthetic methods needed for conjuring these fantastic realities.

EPISODE ILIV: Keep on Pushing!

FEAT: The Sounding Out! Crew

This is how you cope with 2015!

EPISODE ILIII: Retail Soundscapes and the Ambience of Commerce

FEAT: James Hodges

While a long line of thinkers have identified the links between retail and modernity, surprisingly few have addressed the phenomena in auditory terms. Following up on Jonathan Sterne’s 1997 inquiry regarding environmental music in the Mall of America, this podcast examines new developments in ambient sound that have accompanied the rise of e-commerce and the decline of brick-and-mortar stores. Segmentation of markets, nostalgia for the past, and the early history of recording are all addressed, as we take a listening trip through consumer culture.

EPISODE ILII: Listening in on Noisy Ghost ‘Our Madonnas Our Nobodies’

FEAT: Eleanor Russell, André Callot, Eric Wenzel

We are happy to share a podcast on nostalgia, performance, and sound. Please join host, Eleanor Russell (Northwestern University), as she guides us through through the popular sounds of the 1980s and compares her sonically-mediated memories to the lived perspectives of her co-hosts André Callot (Independent Artist) and Eric Wenzel (Roosevelt University). How do we remember urban space through sonic media, and is their a potential to queer our memories of the decade by revisiting our shared media ouvré? No matter where you stand on the issue, we recommend that if you enjoyed this week’s podcast you listen in on Eleanor’s other work exploring performance and sound at Noisy Ghost.

EPISODE ILI: Sound Art as Public Art

FEAT: Salomé Voegelin

Here, Salomé Voegelin treats us to a multimedia re-sonification of the keynote she gave at 2014’s Invisible Places, Sounding Cities conference in Viseu, Portugal, “Sound Art as Public Art,” which revivified the idea of the “civic” as a social responsibility enacted through sound and listening. Available for download here as a podcast is an audio recording of the keynote as well as a transcription of its accompanying score. In this final entry of the series, Vogelin shares her insight about how sound can act as intervention, disruption, and resistance.

EPISODE IL: Linguicide, Indigenous Community and the Search for Lost Sounds

FEAT: Marcella Ernest

Here, Marcella Ernest wonders about the relationship between “lost sounds,” indigenous language, and personal experience. How did we come to lose the language in our own homes? How does this loss continue today? What is being done to “find lost sounds”? The conversation in this podcast is not about the science of linguists, it is not about history or the methods of linguistic preservation. Instead, it is a conversation about the experience of listening and trying to hear how we once were.

EPISODE XXXIX: Soundwalking New Brunswick, NJ and Davis, CA

FEAT: Aaron Trammell

This is a comparison of two soundwalks performed by SO! Multimedia Editor Aaron Trammell in two different cities–New Brunswick, NJ and Davis, CA. In this podcast Aaron listens to his footsteps and considers the sonic interactions between individual and environment. Specifically, he considers how the artist must always contend with the degree to which they are audible in the soundwalks they record, thus marking a radical departure from visual modes of inquiry that render the research invisible. Let’s join Aaron as he walks us through two cities he loves.

EPISODE XXXVIII: Radio Frequencies, Radio Forms LIVE

EPISODE XXVI: Wobbling the Speakerspace

FEAT: Justin Burton, Mike D’Errico, Christina Giacona

One last transmission from the Wobble Continuum series: a mix, for your listening pleasure. Mike D’Errico, Christina Giacona, and Justin Burton spent their posts wobbling along the continuum of production, consumption, and re-sounding of music that incorporates some dubstep techniques as well as the patriarchal, colonialist culture in which that music reverberates. This mix pieces together some of those same sounds, though it isn’t hemmed in by any one genre. Though there is some theory to be found in these songs, the main goal was to offer an enjoyable set of loud, fast music.

FEAT: Andrea Medrado, Maria dos Camelôs, Maurício Hora, Renata Souza

Join Andrea Medrado for a sound tour of Rio as she explores the nooks and crannies of the city’s favelas.

    Dear Soundstudiers,

    I’m a faithful subscriber to your podcast, but I have something not so nice to say. The subjects in your podcast are always interesting, illustrative, and always give me material to think about. Still –don’t get me wrong, I like your podcast a lot–, the audio quality is awful, unfit for such a good podcast; the dynamics are inconsistent, the equalization does not favour the voices, there is so much room reverb and noises (taps in the recorder, or mike…) that distract the focus from the spoken word, not only in interviews, where some amount of noise is expected… I wouldn’t like to go on, it would be impolite and also I wouldn’t like to be misinterpreted.

    I know that the sonic world is complex, and a lot of people taught us to be open to it, but the podcast is a specific medium of communications that needs to fulfill certain sonic necessities arising from its listening conditions. Please, do something about it, it’s not **that** difficult.

    Love, and thanks for listening
