Published Article: Haswell & Hecker and Robin Mackay collaboration 04.11.2007
COLLAPSE Volume III
Paperback 115x175mm 515pp
Limited Edition of 1000 numbered copies.
Collapse Volume III: 'Unknown Deleuze' contains explorations of the work of Gilles Deleuze by pioneering thinkers in the fields of philosophy, aesthetics, music and architecture. In addition, we publish in this volume two previously untranslated texts by Deleuze himself, along with a fascinating piece of vintage science fiction from one of his more obscure influences. Finally, as an annex to Collapse Volume II, we also include a full transcription of the conference on Speculative Realism held in London earlier this year.
Sound artists Russell Haswell and Florian Hecker contribute some strange and beautiful images taken from the electronic 'score' of their new sound work Blackest Ever Black, an 'introduction to synaesthesia' created using composer Iannis Xenakis's computerised UPIC system to transform contemporary images into sound. An accompanying text by Robin Mackay analyses the affinities between Xenakis's conception of a musical 'polyagogy' and Deleuze's 'transcendental empiricism'.
If you are able to post a notice in your place of work or study, please download and print the flyer for Collapse Volume III from http://blog.urbanomic.com/urbanomic/docs/a4flyer-c3.pdfCOLLAPSE is available in the following fine bookstores: Vrin, Paris; ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts) bookshop, London; Tate Modern bookshop, London; Gleebooks, Sydney.
