This month has just whizzed by and Tim and I sadly close down our June discussion Paris time so that Simon Biggs and Sue Hawkings can launch July's topic Australian time on the first of July.
Asha you and your guests should feel free to finish out your discussions but I am sending this from the airport in Paris now as we will be offline until we touch down in Newark at noon EST. Time presents such an interesting dynamic in this list serve as anyone who has moderated a month's discussion has come to know.
At this time we would like to thank our moderators for Sound Paths: Sound Studies Expanded. The breadth of the month's topics on sound has been provocative in many ways.
Week 1: The Creation of Labor through Action moderated by Timothy Taylor (US)
Week 2: Vibratory Matters: moderated by Marcus Boon(CA) with Nina Eldsheim and Douglas Kahn
Week 3: Sound Art, Curating, Technology, Theory moderated by Jim Drobnick (CA) with Darren Copeland, David Cecchetto, Marc Couroux, Christoph Cox, Kevin deForest, Ryan Alexander Diduck, Paul Dolden, Dave Dyment, Anna Friz, Seth Kim-Cohen, Andra McCartney, John Oswald, Eldritch Priest, Salome Voegelin
Week 4:Feminism Confronts Audio Technology moderated by Asha Tamirisa (US) with Rachel Devorah Trapp (US) , Monisola Gbadebo (US), Lyn Goeringer (US), Caroline Park (US)
Though we have touched on a number of sound related topics if any of our participants are interested in designating an entire month to extend the discussion we do have a month towards the latter part of this year open. Just send an email our way.
I want to take the time to give a shout out to Asha and her guests for offering a feminist perspective on sound this past week. My travels have prevented me from having the internet access I needed to participate fully but I do have so many questions for you that extend beyond the practice of making but imply more political implications. I would love to spend more time in nurturing topics relating to feminism and technology. I mentioned that a couple of weeks ago I attended the FemTechNet workshop at the New School. An international discussion involving feminist technologies would interest me and I know many of our guests so if anyone is willing to co-moderate a month with me in the future let me know as well.
Simon and Sue thanks for taking over July. Just a note to let you all know that -empyre will be offline in August once again for our yearly break.
au revoir, Renate and Tim
