Michel Serres

Michel Serres on Noise

I begin to fathom the sound and the fury, of the world and of history: the noise.

Noise in French means “strife” (cf. chercher noise, “kick up a fuss,” “look for a fight”); bruit is “noise” — in two senses: auditory noise (static) and noise in information theory (turbulence) [see Serres, Genesis 141]. For Serres, noise serves as the “third man” (the parasite: the unwelcome guest) in all communication. (In French, bruit parasite is static or interference.)

See Serres, Hermes 66-67:

Double Vision, Call Out 2017

Double Vision is a series of free-form gigs showcasing the practice of DIY, experimental, sound artists and “other” musicians. The program seeks to a create platform that encourages collaboration between artists and musicians – and their communities, providing the opportunity to re-frame and recalibrate creative vision through a cross disciplinary approach.

Double Vision invites proposals from students of the University of Sydney (past/present/future) and the wider community for the 2017 series.

Performance dates will be confirmed with the artists after the call-out deadline – the gigs take place on a Saturday afternoon from 1:00 – 4:00 PM.

Please note: Successful applicants from past series will not be reconsidered and need not re-apply. New projects are welcome.

The Renegade Press

A Sufi holy man was asked, “What is forgiveness?” He said, “It is the fragrance that flowers give when they are crushed.”

  • One Sufi’s Saying

I have always viewed the individuals that make up our society as a collection of candles. Inside the mind of every man, woman, and child are thin strands of consciousness bound together like interwoven cotton, forming a wick. These wicks are the idiosyncratic and cultural beliefs that guide us; they are the past experiences, thoughts, and feelings that govern our realities and establish how we see the world. Although our individual philosophies, and how we choose to interpret them may vary, they are central to who we are as human beings. Continue reading The Renegade Press
