ANNIE GOH | The Dimension of Sound in Flusser’ - Implications for a sonic media archaeology

Although Vilém Flusser’s work is not often associated with music or sound, his writings on music and listening indicate a largely over-looked significance of these in his thought. Reading Flusser’s “crisis of linearity” thesis as a media-philosophical and epistemological model, his critique of Western culture can be expanded upon in the context of contemporary sound studies and its challenge to ocularcentrism. Using the example of archaeoacoustics, the gesture of listening can be re-examined for its implications towards a sonic media archaeology.
