Social Sound Experiments with Marc Weidenbaum

Instagr/am/bient art

Every week, disquiet.com music journalist Marc Weidenbaum feeds his community of hungry sound artists a creative new challenge. In this project, called Disquiet Junto, Marc challenges composers to produce tracks based on an ice cube, or an Instagram photo, or the sound of space plasma hitting the Voyager I. Marc joins me for this episode of Composer Quest to share some of the coolest and most influential sound art pieces. Marc also explains why he believes music as we know it will be totally absent from films in a matter of decades.

    Thanks for this episode (and published on my birthday!).
    Good to hear Marc talk about this wonderful ongoing project.
    Was fascinated by all the excerpts – especially the Kannenberg.
    I’ve recorded the inside of galleries as well.
    One of which can be found here: http://stasick.org/235
    Looking forward to more podcasts. Keep up the good work!
