Noise is a phenomenon that has fascinated artists and theorists alike. Its ethical and political affordances have made it an attractive metaphor for struggle, refusal and transformation; while its myriad of associated sonic effects have been central to much twentieth- and twenty-first century creative practice.

In this workshop, we will map the notion of noise and its connections with two related concepts: mediation and reproduction. We will consider what alternative histories, practices and politics these relationships reveal and the implications they hold for understanding sonic aesthetics and technics. Furthermore, we will explore how noise, mediation and reproduction shape and are shaped by histories of femininity and feminized labour, asking how and what the relationships between noise, mediation and reproduction reveal about the gendered and materialist politics of sound.
