*New podcast: PROBES #18.2. Auxiliaries. Curated by Chris Cutler*

In this auxilliary, bachelor pad hi-fi stereo exotica whips off its kitschy
disguise to reveal a revolutionary core, abandoning boring documentation
for a hyperreal exploration of novel timbres, impossible spatialities and
radical fragmentation. *This is where recording technology finally becomes
aware of itself as an aesthetic rather than as a purely technical medium.*

The PROBES <http://rwm.macba.cat/en/probes_auxiliaries_tag>Auxiliaries
collect materials related to each episode that try to give a broader – and
more immediate – impression of the field. They are a scan, not a deep
listening vehicle; an indication of what further investigation might
uncover and, for that reason, most are edited snapshots of longer pieces.
We have tried to light the corners as well as the central arena, and to not
privilege so-called serious over so-called popular genres.

Chris Cutler puts some context to this history. You can find the script for
the episode here:
