    One thought on “In the Blink of an Ear: Toward a Non-Cochlear Sonic Art”

    1. This has to be the single worse book on sound art I have ever read. It reminds me of the sort of book written by someone who is driven by a set of prejudices the foundations of which they themselves do not fully understand. There is a kneejerk reaction against phenomenology that claims to come from a commitment to post-structuralism when, in fact, the truth of the story is far more complex than a sort of absurdly simplistic reaction where Husserl=bad. Even when Kim-Cohen attempts to say Merlea-P [...]

    2. The author comes at sound art through visual art, specifically minimalism and conceptualism, which gives him a distinct perspective. Once you get through a difficult and rather dry chapter on same, Kim-Cohen will reward you with the clearest, most cogent readings of John Cage I have come across, along within insights into other important sound artists. Be aware that he is most concerned with those working in the conceptual realm he brands "non-cochlear". Once this thesis and limited scope is tak [...]

    3. Academic text that appears to be in the same realm of research I'm interested in with A/V performance. So far I *love* his point that descriptors for art are mainly from the visual realm. In his intro he points out the the ear doesn't blink. It remains an open channel/receptor into our brains. My thesis made an argument along these lines: that critical models based solely in the visual realm are inadequate for considering interdisciplinary work. Seems pretty obvious, yeah?I should also mention t [...]

    4. This is a book that is useful for researchers thinking about and through sonic media. It can be the basis and foundation for further theorizations of sound. I found the book solid, but under-developed. Having said that, there are some very significant statements, concepts and interpretations introduced by Kim-Cohen.It is worth reading by specialists in this field and is a productive text. For those without already existing expertise in sonic media, I would look elsewhere.

    5. I think this a solid book to get bearings in critical social, historical and political discourse within sound works.
