Raviv Ganchrow to defend his PhD

On May 15th, 2024 at 17:00 Raviv Ganchrow will defend his dissertation titled:


Sound Operation Circuit:

Terrestrial Oscillations and Dynamics of the Expanse



Sounds always occur ‘somewhere’, endowed with specific material ‘qualities’ that also indicate courses of action. Spatio-temporal qualities of sound, the contexts they enmesh, together with the attentions they sustain and actions they enfold, collectively constitute dynamic systems termed ‘circuits’. This research investigates the circuitries of sound manifestations, in their diverse spatial-material-temporal configurations, and probes the manners in which those situated materializations are inextricably bound to contextual dynamics. The thesis presents a novel integrative approach to sound’s distributed operations, where sound’s actions are observed bridging disparate realms and spanning knowledge divides. An operational circuit approach (OCA) is adopted as a means of following sound’s refractive-transductive meandering through heterogeneous, poly-temporal fields. The thesis highlights the deeply networked and territorially active basis of sound’s inexhaustible appearances. Sound’s spatio-material agency is examined across a range of sites interlinking geological, technological and sensory domains, with particular emphasis on reconfigurations of attention circuits during the age of acoustics. The thesis exposes sound’s complex dynamics as exemplary of terrestrial vibrancy, demonstrating the agency of circuit operations in altering human attentions as well as transforming telluric milieus.
