2013 - current

Ear | Wave | Event is a journal/zine/web publication co-edited with Bill Dietz.

With sound finding a greater place in academic sound studies conferences and museum sound art exhibitions, we found ourselves increasingly frustrated by the limited discourse on the sonic. Our publication attempts to expand larger arts discourses to include the sonic, and framing music criticism via a more art historical lens.

We have published submissions from: Peter Ablinger, G. Douglas Barrett, Chloë Bass, Anna Bromley, Anne Callahan, Kabir Carter, Budhaditya Chattopadhyay, Amy Cimini, Jim Ellis, Lawrence English, Jessica Feldman, Michael Fesca, Jules Gimbrone, Sean Griffin, David Grubbs, Hairbone (Raúl de Nieves, Jessie Stead, Nathan Whipple), Emma Hedditch, Catherine Christer Hennix, Neo Hülcker, Brenda Hutchinson, Bethany Ides, Paolo Javier, Dawn Kasper, Christine Sun Kim, Eric Laska, Lindsay Lodhie, Chris Mann, Matt Marble, Mattin, Helen Mirra, Geoff Mullen, Pauline Oliveros, Kamau Patton, Matana Roberts, Marina Rosenfeld, Marc Sabat, Micah Silver, Dima Strakovsky, Sergei Tcherepnin, Title TK (Cory Arcangel, Alan Licht, Howie Chen), Ben Vida, Anna Vitale, Christian Von Borries, Mary Walling Blackburn, Hong-Kai Wang, Robin Watkins, J Zevin

Our fourth issue was our first printed edition. It is a 12" booklet with a record jacket with contributions expanding notions of traditional music distribution.

Our fifth issue was a music review website entirely written by AI (using GPT-2). In turn, artists submitted new music based off of these imagined albums.
