Sonic Rhetorics: A Mashed-Up Introduction in Sound

Sonic Rhetorics: A Mashed-Up Introduction in Sound

Jon Stone & Steph Ceraso

Abstract


Welcome to the special-themed Sonic Rhetorics issue of Harlot. Putting this issue together was a thoroughly collaborative process that involved a lot of back and forth with authors about their work, creative visions, and sonic rhetorics. For months we have been sounding out, experimenting with, and synthesizing these pieces until they seemed to hit the right note. So, rather than giving an authoratative summary of individual pieces, we thought it made more sense for contributors to speak (and sound) for themselves--and together. When you press play, you will hear a mashup of the sounds and soundbites from many of this issue's authors. Think of it as a sonic sampler that helps you get a taste of what's to come. We hope you will learn from and enjoy this work as much as we have.Thanks to everyone for the countless hours of work. I'm amazed at how much time and love goes into these issues--so thanks for giving us the time to share in the love!Jon and Steph
