some posts about rap

I've been blogging about rap. Most of it relates to or heralds from stuff in our Vocalities discussions. My research (if you can call it that) has kinda spiralled (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, 2584, 4181) a little since then but I think some posts will resonate strongly with particular essays from course and also previous posts here.

There are 6 parts, the footnotes and bibliography are all in part 6. If anyone has any comments I'd like to hear them.


Trill Shit: Cacophonies Part 1
Trill Shit: Cacophonies Part 2
Trill Shit: Cacophonies Part 3
Trill Shit: Cacophonies Part 4
Trill Shit: Cacophonies Part 5
Trill Shit: Cacophonies Part 6

In retrospect I think my treatment is a little scatty and un-thorough, but some of the connections are cool and there are lots of rap videos.


Here's an ODB a capella

Robotic Mouth

So Burroughs.

Amy - this is for you and the nifty triangulation of Barthesian grain, Kempelen's machine and future machinic technologized voice via Ronell's Alex G Bell mecha-voco-morto-logy. Proper moves.

Eleusinian Press - Finding a Voice

Newhaven Journeyman: Issue 1 – Finding a Voice published by Eleusinian Press is now available to pre-order. I'm really looking forward to reading it. It will contain a long essay by me (if anyones interesting in reading my random musing on Sloterdijk or Echo and Narcissus) and the other contributors sound really interesting, I'm looking forward to reading those. I know the editor has a psychology background but I also know the contributors come from all sorts of disciplines - it'll be great to see all the different analyses and enquiries into Voice. I'm pretty much convinced that all insightful texts come from utilising a variety of disciplines, the gold is in the gaps.
