Introduction: Voice, Voicetracks, New Materialism

(p.1) 1 Introduction: Voice, Voicetracks, New Materialism

Norie Neumark

The MIT Press

This chapter establishes the theoretical underpinnings of the book, introducing theories of voice, new materialism, posthumanism, carnal and situated knowledge, and affect. It discusses the unusual writing voice that a new materialist book about voice calls for. Presenting the implications of a new materialist approach to voice, the author discusses why she listens to this as voice particularly, rather than sound in general. Listening and conversations as the modes and methodologies are introduced. There is further discussion of voicetracks as the way through the book’s diverse works and transversal or inter-disciplinary theories. This chapter also introduces the engagement with the author’s own sound and media work which has shaped her apprehension of voice and the assemblages with/in which it speaks.

Keywords:   listening, affect, new materialism, situated knowledge, assemblages, voice, conversation, posthumanism, transversality, interdisciplinarity
