LMJ 22 Call for Papers: Acoustics

Immersed as we are in electronically mediated sound, at the end of the day---whether it's coming from ukuleles or earbuds---sound reaches us through acoustic pressure. The sheer physicality of sound, and its quirky interaction with our sense of hearing, has driven many a composer and sound artist to go back to the "year zero" in music---before the codification of melody, rhythm and harmony---and explore fundamental aspects of the physics and perception of sound. For Volume 22 of Leonardo Music Journal we solicit articles and artist’s statements on the role of acoustics and psychoacoustics in music and audio art. Deadline to submit proposals: 15 October 2011.
