VOICE

VOICE
Vocal Aesthetics in Digital Arts and Media

Edited by Norie Neumark, Ross Gibson and Theo Van Leeuwen
The MIT Press, U.S.A.

Voice has returned to both theoretical and artistic agendas. In the digital era, techniques and technologies of voice have provoked insistent questioning of the distinction between the human voice and the voice of the machine, between genuine and synthetic affect, between the uniqueness of an individual voice and the social and cultural forces that shape it. This volume offers interdisciplinary perspectives on these topics from history, philosophy, cultural theory, film, dance, poetry, media arts, and computer games. Many chapters demonstrate Lewis Mumford’s idea of the “cultural preparation” that precedes technological innovation—that socially important new technologies are foreshadowed in philosophy, the arts, and everyday pastimes.

Chapters cover such technologies as voice mail, podcasting, and digital approximations of the human voice. A number of authors explore the performance, performativity, and authenticity (or ‘authenticity effect’) of voice in dance, poetry, film, and media arts; while others examine more immaterial concerns—the voice’s often-invoked magical powers, the ghostliness of disembodied voices, and posthuman vocalization. The chapters evoke an often paradoxical reassertion of the human in the use of voice in mainstream media including recorded music, films, and computer games.

Norie Neumark analyzes and writes about the Oppera Teorettikka Internettikka by Igor Štromajer.
