Andrzej HEJMEJ – Literature in an Acousmatic Culture

Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN za szt.

Modern auditory experience has been carved out in the 20th and 21st centuries in the context of technological advancement and media expansion. The author puts forward the thesis that members of a media society necessarily live in an audio-visual culture bearing acousmatic qualities. The approach used throughout the paper highlights the fact that modern acousmatic experience, which involves various forms of indirect listening, or listening by means of a ‘new ear’ (according to Pierre Schaeffer’s formulation), has been reconfiguring the hierarchy of sense perception since the early 20th century. With a view to the specificity of auditory experience, the author reconstructs ways in which it affects the forms of literary phenomena, the practices of the reception of literary works, as well as their understanding as such. In this context, a privileged place belongs to the phenomenon of ‘voice,’ considered here in two different aspects, namely, as voice in praesentia and voice in absentia.
