Berlin
Errant Bodies, run by Brandon LaBelle, has been publishing books (anthologies, monographs, essays), DVDs and CDs on sound, auditory issues, spatial arts and design, and cultures of experimental performance and art since 1995. Since this time, it has been at the forefront of developing and supporting the diverse attitudes toward the emerging field of sound art, contemporary experimental music, and auditory culture. In addition, Errant Bodies aims to remain sensitive to the specifics of location and the co-productive details born from cultural work and its place through site-based research, actions and projects.
