Abstract

CALL FOR PAPERS LMJ 17: My Favorite Things: The Joy of the Gizmo If, as Marshall McLuhan so famously suggested, the medium is the message, then the gizmo must be the one-liner. From baroque violinists to laptoppers, sound artists have long fetishized the tools of their trade, the mere naming of which can provoke an instant reaction: Shout “LA-2A,” “TR-808,” “JTM45” or “Tube Screamer” in a room full of musicians, and you will notice the eyes brighten, the breath shorten and the anecdotes pour forth. But only to a point: Many a “secret weapon” is held close to the chest. This is the chance to get that secret off your chest: LMJ 17 will address the significance of physical objects in music and sound art in a time of increasing emphasis on software and file exchange. We are soliciting papers (2,000–5,000 words) and briefer artists’ statements (500–1,000 words) on the role of purchased or homemade instruments, effects boxes, pieces of studio gear, “bent” toys, self-built circuits, and so on, in your work as a composer, performer, artist, producer, recording engineer, etc. Wherever possible, please include photographs of your subjects (300 ppi TIFFs preferred).
