Sound Exchange | Anthology of Experimental Music Cultures in Central and Eastern Europe 1950-2010 

You can upload the whole book in pdf for free HERE

The long traditions of experimental music cultures in Central and Eastern Europeare diverse and multifaceted, but have been difficult to access until now. With contributions from selected music, media and cultural studies specialists from eight countries, this anthology bundles together elements of unearthing material locally and documents current positions and historical finds by protagonists, as well as musical aesthetic qualities in the history of musical experiments in Central and Eastern Europe. The anthology pursues commonalities and singularities and discusses their relationship with the international history of experimental music.

The often barely known musical and artistic positions portrayed here show a wide stylistic and aesthetic spectrum of electro-acoustic music, composed and improvised music, musical media art and audio art from 60 years of experimental musical culture in the context of decades-long political repression and an atmosphere of increasing openness and international networking following 1989.

Coinciding with Sound Exchange project events, the texts and documents on the individual countries will appear online as a mix of digital references and live documentation.
