Listen back to the latest Sound Salon with Somerset House Studios Associate Artist Jennifer Walshe. Special guest, Dr Michael Waugh discusses Post-Internet sound, the internet and digital technologies.
The idea of the ‘Post-Internet’ has mostly been associated with a specific aesthetic of irony and kitsch. In his research, Dr. Michael Waugh expands the term to reflect on contemporary identity in a world of where the relationship between young people and digital networks are increasingly intertwined. Analysing contemporary musical production, representation and distribution, he resituates ‘Post-Internet’ as a broader concept that embodies the lives of people operating on/offline simultaneously.
