"From the mid-20th century to the present, the Brazilian cultural scene and its art, literature, and music has been witness to a wealth of creative approaches involving sound. This is the backdrop for Making It Heard: A History of Brazilian Sound Art, a volume that offers an overview of local artists working with performance, experimental vinyl production, sound installation, sculpture, radio, field recording, and sound mapping. It criticizes universal approaches to art and music historiography that fail to recognize local idiosyncrasies, and creates a local rationale and discourse. Through this approach, Chavez and Iazzetta enable students, researchers, and artists to discover and acknowledge work produced outside of a standard Anglo-European framework"--Provided by publisher.
