Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies
Seth Cluett, Princeton University Ph.D. candidate in Music; Composer and Sound Artist, will present findings from his research âAcoustics, Loudspeakers, and the Politics of Projection,â? with a particular focus on issues related to the interests of the Center and its affiliates.
Seth will introduce the idea of 'component media' for discussing media technologies in general, but with regard to sound-producing technologies more specifically. Media studies traditionally concerns itself with technology in its consumed form (content or product). However, looking at components that bridge multiple media - such as the loudspeaker - it becomes possible to glimpse a unique view of the development of the devices that permeate our culture. Sethâs interest is in art and music projects that mobilize the loudspeaker, and he will introduce a number of creative projects to show the value of this form of analysis for the study of works by artists and musicians that engage with sound.
The luncheon will take place in 165 Wallace Hall from noon to 1:30pm. Please contact Mindy Weinberg at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend.
