About UbuWeb Sound*
Originally focusing on Sound Poetry proper, UbuWeb's Sound section has grown
to encompass all types of sound art, historical and contemporary. Beginning
with pioneers such as Guillaume Apollinaire
<http://ubu.com/sound/app.html>reading his "Calligrammes" in 1913, and
proceeding to current practitioners
such as Vito Acconci <http://ubu.com/sound/acconci.html> or Kristin
Oppenheim <http://ubu.com/sound/oppenheim.html>, UbuWeb Sound surveys the
entire 20th century and beyond. Categories include Dadaism, Futurism, early
20th century literary experiments, musique concrete, electronic music,
Fluxus, Beat sound works, minimalist and process works, performance art,
plunderphonics and sampling, and digital glitch works, to name just a few.
As the practices of sound art continue to evolve, categories become
increasingly irrelevant, a fact UbuWeb embraces. Hence, our artists are
listed alphabetically instead of categorically.
UbuWeb embraces non-proprietary, open source media. As such, most of our
newer files are encoded in the more universally readable MP3 format.
However, when a recording is still in print and available, we only serve it
in streaming RealMedia; we don't wish to take whatever small profits might
be made from those taking the efforts to gather, manufacture and properly
distribute such recordings. Instead, we hope that by streaming these works,
it will serve as an enticement for UbuWeb visitors to support the small
labels making this work available.
All MP3s served on UbuWeb are either out-of-print, incredibly difficult to
find, or, in our opinion, absurdly overpriced.
