CHARM Symposium 5: Cultures of recording
Royal Holloway, University of London, Egham - 10-12 April 2008
The topic of CHARM's fifth residential symposium, held in Egham, was 'Cultures of recording', meaning the variety of cultural practices and environments that surround recording, including - for example - the material culture of recordings (gramophones, cover art and videos, music rooms), the recording studio as a focus of social or political action, recording and the uncanny, the recording as commodity, and the recording as agent for the reconfiguration of place or space. The topic was explored in relation to both popular and 'art' traditions.
