Previous studies of the HANG [T. D. Rossing, U. Hansen, F. Rohner, and S. Scharer, 142nd ASA meeting, December 2001; T.D.Rossing, A. Morrison, U. Hansen, F. Rohner and S. Scharer, Proceedings of ISMA07, Barcelona, 2007] have discussed the modes of vibration and the sound radiation field of the HANG when note areas are excited by sinusoidal force. Since the HANG is a hand-played steel instrument, a wide variety of playing techniques are used by various performers. We report on the sound of the…

Mashing and remixing: using the quadripartita ratio in the aesthetic public sphere
In this article, a remix produced by the artist Pogo and a mashup made by the artist Kutiman are examined as positioned within an aesthetic public sphere. Using the taxonomy afforded by the
