About the book

Sound and music is a product of technology. Whether we are enjoying a concert, working in a sound studio or listening with headphones on, technical equipment lays the foundation of our musical experience.

In Machine Music. A Media Archaeological Excavation postdoc, composer and PhD Morten Riis tunes into normally undetected layers of music. Musical machines - be it ancient or modern instruments, computers, loudspeakers or amplifiers - are not just silent mediators of sounds. They all have their own unique voices. We simply have to learn to listen to them.
