Sonic Encounters with Blanchot

by Adam Potts

Sonic Encounters with Blanchot Synopsis

Sonic Encounters with Blanchot is the first book to explore the relationship of sound and music with the work of Maurice Blanchot. The volume brings together scholars from a range of disciplines who listen closely to the sounds and resonances emanating from within Blanchot's work and who consider their significance both within his work and beyond. The latent and explicit sonic content of Blanchot's writing is explored, as is his treatment of music and the possibilities of thinking about contemporary music and sound art through his work. Although Blanchot is best known for his engagement with literature, an engagement that often relies on visual references and experiences, this collection takes a sonic route into one of the most exciting and demanding thinkers of the twentieth century. As an interdisciplinary exploration of sound and Blanchot's work, this book will be interest to those studying sound in literature and music, as well as students of Blanchot's work in general. This book was originally published as a special issue of Angelaki.
