This issue surveys the second edition of the Dirty Ear Forum at Bergen Academy of Art and Design in Norway, centered around the sound
as the basis for a new discursive paradigm.
Dirty Ear Report #02 documents a collective workshop by leading sound artists and theorists working in the fields of experimental dramaturgy, electronic music and noise, voice studies, sound installation and social acoustics. The second in the series of the Dirty Ear Forum, an experimental forum for sonic research held at Bergen Academy of Art and Design in Norway, the Report brings together essays, text pieces, documents and scores from the participants, arguing for sound as the basis for a new discursive paradigm. In particular, questions of noise and otherness, sonic materiality and a politics of possibility are considered, posing sound as a force of multiplicity.
