Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Soundscape of the Factory Floor
by Ferris, Seth Alexander, M.F.A., University of California, San Diego, 2017, 28; 10286251
Abstract (Summary)

This thesis compares the structures within industrial production, specifically related to time and the perception of it to the reciprocal resistances and responses within post-war art works. Specifically sound, its relationship to both the human quantification of labor and its exploitation in factory. Suggesting that these – the conditions of human work time – are the material by which artists who work with sound construct ulterior time frames either through processes ranging from deep listening the the co-productive activities surrounding electronic dance music.
