Sonic Wilderness: Wild Vinyl Records


Includes 7% VAT DE

Sonic Wilderness accesses the critical value of unusual vinyl records that concern our relationship with nature. These wild records reveal unconventional perspectives on the entanglements of human life with animals, gardens and plants. They form a lyrical unconscious exposing the conventions and ideologies of popular music, their warped perspectives and acoustic radioactivity comprising a resistance to enduring social, psychological and political conditions.

Mark Harris researches how language, image and music reveal everyday experience as remarkable. His art and writing concern avant-garde manifestations, including 19th-century utopianism, Surrealism, 60s communes, Beat poets and filmmakers, intoxication, sound studies and Caribbean poetics. Recent exhibitions and performances have occurred in Vienna, London, New York and Chicago. He is currently Professor of Fine Art at the University of Cincinnati, Ohio.


“A remarkable heterodox and illuminating history; Harris’s choices are unfailingly engaging. … a book, that will surely, open up new connections and attachments, between musical fields and sonic encounters. I enjoyed it immensely.”

John Roberts, Professor of Art and Aesthetics at the University of Wolverhampton
