New sound studies journal

The first issue of Sound Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal has been published!  The issue’s wide-ranging articles cover a broad range of theories and topics, including “the growing significance of object-oriented ontology, or the shift from an earlier focus on the sound–vision binary to other senses such as touch and its interconnections to issues of affect.”

Editors Veit Erlmann and Michael Bull describe the new journal as follows:

Sound Studies aims to provide a forum for… emergent ideas, theories, and topics [in the field], but it is also committed to an ongoing dialogue with some of the field’s rich legacy in areas such as soundscapes, sound art, film music, histories of listening, the tensions and synergies of sound and vision, and many others.
