Linda Kouvaras, Loading the Silence (2013)
We were honoured to have several pages devoted to Random Acts of Elevator Music in this amazing book by musician and academic Linda Kouravas. Her book Loading the Silence: Australian Sound Art in the Post-Digital Age is a fantastic study of experimental music in Australia. Although her focus is the “post-digital” age, there is some excellent discussion of John Cage and Percy Grainger in here. One interesting aspect is the idea of the “altermodern”, which Kouvaras proposes has emerged following on from the post-modern era.
