Hearing the Gaze, Feeling the Sound: Directed Listening in Audio Remix Culture

By John Cain Harrison

This thesis examines the cultural and textual varieties that direct our event of listening.
It addresses this intake from either the physically frameworks of intersectional subjectivity in addition to affective assemblage. the idea that of the assemblage permits monitoring cellular auditory flows of sensation, whereas intersectionality most sensible types the placement of minority our bodies, minority politics, and minority listening in modern tradition. In relocating among those, I argue for the iconic, mutually-reinforcing necessity of utilizing either. eventually, the remix presents either a methodological lens for revealing directive audio kinds in addition to marking a specific ancient shift in listening.
In bankruptcy one, I research Spork! An Erotic Love Story(2009) by way of cirrocumulus and
jiaren_shadow. This piece is a remodeling of the audiobook version of the novelization of the 11th superstar Trek (2009) characteristic movie. The woman-authored remix creates a male-male erotic tale according to diegetically heterosexual protagonists. In doing so, it unearths the best way listening is being directed within the unique either when it comes to intersectionality and sensation. The intersectional research makes a speciality of gender, utilizing the remix to carry out how listening is mediated via a male voice and the correspondence among this mediation and the erasure of girls within the narrative. by way of sensation, this comparability highlights the shift in inspired manifestations of arousal from emotions rooted in motion and event to that of sexual stimulation. I additionally discover the text‘s courting to the megastar Trekfranchise and its place as sound, as a remix, and as pornography. The bankruptcy builds to a controversy that remix tradition enables an explosion of mediated our bodies that characterize a extra versatile feel of the auditory for the modern second.
Chapter listens to the audio of a parodic remix of woman Gaga‘s ―Alejandro‖ (2010)
by Latina comedienne, l. a. Coacha (2010). The research locates the tensions among remix and resource textual content on the intersection of race, sexuality, and gender, in its exam of ways Gaga‘s voice directs listeners with regard to Latin American male sexuality. Affectively, this bankruptcy addresses humor and sensations of entertainment. I finish with a extra thorough dialogue of the union among affective and intersectional analytics and their mutual dependence as made transparent in los angeles Coacha‘s work.
Having paired grassroots remixes with advertisement audio creation in either chapters, the
conclusion uncouples them, returning to this introduction‘s examinations of girl Gaga and DJ Earworm on their lonesome. This part unpacks the query of who girl Gaga and Earworm are. I caricature the connection among the explosion of Gaga‘s physique through advertisement illustration with the following assembling of Earworm‘s out of those exploded items and people of alternative stars. this can be by way of a dialogue of the larger implications of the thesis for remix tradition and for scholarship on listening.
