Example text

To begin with, when interpreted adjectivally – in the active sense of the public-ising (or public-making)26 and privatising propensities of music and sound – they register processes that are at once social, material and spatial. Moreover, abandoning any merely dualistic conception of the terms makes it possible to highlight the relational nature of their articulation, their mutual constitution and multiplicity. Productive here is Susan Gal’s semiotic analysis of the public/private distinction in which she ­portrays the categories as not only encultured and relational, but fractal-like and recursive, such that they are capable of generating ‘multiple nestings’ (Gal 2002: 81).

It follows that rather than think of space as static, unitary and unconnected to time, it should be interpreted as inherently mobile and in motion (Thrift 2006). A variant of this stance is articulated by Doreen Massey, for whom space is ‘the product of interrelations’, the realm in which ‘distinct trajectories co-exist … Without space, no multiplicity; without multiplicity, no space’ (all Massey 2005: 9). ‘What is needed’, Massey contends, ‘is to uproot “space” from that constellation of concepts in which it has so unquestioningly … been embedded (stasis; closure; representation) and to settle it among another set of ideas (heterogeneity; relationality; ­coevalness)’ (2005: 13).

27 Introduction mobile, individuated listening enclaves nested within the wider acoustic and social environment; soldiers using personal audio media and headphones inside tanks in battle to construct a sense of intimate, affective space and identity that occludes the ambient sounds of violent warfare; and the virtual musical publics afforded by internet-based distributed music-sharing and music-making encountered within the privacy of participants’ domestic settings and offline lifeworlds. The proliferation of audio media therefore results in a situation in which acoustic environments are increasingly multiple, recursive and topologically malleable.
