Dave Krukowski: "Listen to the Noise"

The way music is made, distributed, and consumed has changed radically in the digital era. But which aspects of that change are truly fundamental to the ways we communicate? This talk will approach the question by borrowing an audio engineering concept: the relationship of signal to noise.

Damon Krukowski is a musician (Galaxie 500, Damon & Naomi), writer (The New Analog), and podcaster (Ways of Hearing, from Radiotopia’s Showcase). He has written about sound and music for Artforum, Pitchfork, and The New Yorker. His latest book is Ways of Hearing (MIT Press, 2019), a print adaptation of his popular six-episode podcast series.
