26. JunA Sound Projectile Behind the Light >>The moving image is always accompanied by a chaotic or organized sound. In terms of acoustics, the image reflects its form of life, its direction and its intervention on the world’s surface through sound. The matrix of this agitation is always sound. The fact that this agitation is the foundation of life in each observer indicates not only the fluid and invisible form of sound but also the territory from where it starts and through which it passes. The central dilemma in the first two decades of the 20th century on the issue of sound and image was especially constituted in the relationship between cinema and art and in cinema as a visual representation of the event, i.e., as a narrative that approaches everyday narratives that can be either individual or collective.

26. JunRevisiting Inarticulacy >>It has been said all too often that our culture is a culture of the image, favouring the sense of vision at the detriment of other senses. As Christoph Cox points out, “prevailing theoretical models are inadequate to (sound art) check quote re brackets. Developed to account for the textual and the visual, they fail to capture the nature of the sonic.” (Cox 2011: 141). Cox argues that the resistance of sound based arts to analysis on the basis of representation and textuality has been noted early on, and has given rise to interpretations of music as either “sub-representational” (addressing raw emotion) or “super-representational” (addressing the universal and absolute). This conceptual split seems to be coupled to a sociological and anthropological one. The realm of sound attains both a privileged status and a banished one. Music plays a central role both in sacred rituals and in socially proscribed practices. This ambivalent status is reflected in the treatment of musicians and dancers in many traditions, a combination of reverence and anathema.
