"Caleb Kelly's

"Caleb Kelly's "Cracked Media" is a welcome addition to the growing body of critical writing on the role of sound in the history of modern and postmodern art. It helpfully extends Douglas Kahn's monumental "Noise, Water, Meat: A History of Sound" in the Arts by focusing on a powerful strain of contemporary sonic art: the creative mis-use of audio playback technologies. As Kelly ably theorizes it, the 'crack' is a productive break that articulates past and future, archaeology and innovation, analog and digital. Hence, this book combines an exhaustive survey and taxonomy of recent experiments with turntables and CD technology (Oval, Christian Marclay, Yasunao Tone, etc.) with a detailed genealogy of these practices that traces them back to earlier moments of sonic experimentation (Futurism, Fluxus, John Cage, etc.). Informed, but not overloaded, by theoretical accounts of phonography and digital media, Kelly helpfully sorts out what is at issue in cracked sound and places this at the cen

"Finally, a deep, scholarly accounting of the aesthetics of failure. Props to Caleb Kelly for laying bare the various histories of 'malfunction' as a compositional device. This book should be required reading for anyone working in electronic music today."--Kim Cascone, Composer and Writer

"For those of us who witnessed and accompanied the advent of the laptop music scene in the late 1990s, this book situates the movement within broader contexts of sound exploration in the 20th century. While theories of the everyday have been applied to music listening, they have not been used to discuss music creation. Kelly shows how the mechanisms of consumer music culture led to new directions in artistic creation. What we see is how the creative act in the age of mechanical reproduction becomes a music of cracked reproduction, and ultimately an art of manual mechanical deconstruction."--Atau Tanaka, Artist, Director of Culture Lab Newcastle

"Fans of both the scratch and the stutter, and those of us trying to make a connection between the two, will find this to be an excellent refresher course--or the gentle introduction they've been looking for. An invaluable reference on the origins of sampling in music and audio art, this book connects the dots and names names. I thoroughly enjoyed it."--Jon Nelson, Escape Mechanism, and www.some-assembly-required.net

Kelly's "Cracked Media" is a thorough investigation of artistic practices and its underlying motivation that use sound reproduction media against their original purpose. Instead of using record and CD players to play sounds, there is an already long history of artists who have used it as a sound generating device (rather than only a sound reproduction device). Nevertheless, there has been very little research in this field, as a more general cultural practice. Kelly's book makes a brilliant first step to fill this gap.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Almost as compelling as crack. 25. September 2009
Von Dr Puppy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
A fascinating account of practices of cracked media, giving an astounding number of examples that document this movement and trace its genealogy back in time through various avant-garde artistic practices. Kelly convincingly links a lot of disparate practices under this term; my only question would be whether in fact there might be a major omission in the form of musique concrete which would seem to fit in the category. The book is perhaps more of interest for its accounts of artistic /musical practice rather than its forays into the theoretical realm when it tries to think through some of the issues arising from them, as well as about the nature of music vs sound art, sound vs noise, but this is not the major focus of the book anyway really so little matter. Anyone who has ever thought that the Madonna CD playing in the supermarket sounded much better when it started skipping, or who loves the sound of the run out groove at the end of a 33rpm or the satisfying kthunk hsss hsss as the stylus drops on to a platter of vinyl has to read this.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting treatise 12. Februar 2010
Von York Brun Luethje - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
One feature of avantguarde music since its inception early in the 20th century has been the 'misuse' of instruments and the incorporation of 'non-instruments' to create music.
Anyone tackling this vast subject will have to focus on some aspects while ignoring others. Mr. Kelly's take is the use and abuse of recording and playback media, such as the CD, tape and vinyl records. We get details of the works of artists like Nam June Paik, Yasuano Tone and Oval. I found the book to contain many interesting observations and actually felt insprired to try some techniques myself.
The book was less convincing in its attempt to try to find some common denominator for all the different artists. That is probably impossible given the timespan the book covers and the many different approaches described; in any event the use of French philosophers like Michel Certeau unfortunately leads to verbose drivel.
That quibble however shouldn't take away from what is a really informative and at times inspring work.
