Welcome to ShortCuts. To kick off the new miniseries season, Katherine invites us into an audio remix of short clips from deep in the archive to consider: what does it mean and what is possible (technologically, phenomenologically, ethically, poetically) to cut and splice digitally? What kinds of new stories and audio-criticism can be produced through these short archival clips?
A fresh take on our past minisode series – “ShortCuts” is an extension of the ‘ShortCuts’ blog posts on SpokenWebBlog, this series brings Katherine’s favorite audio clips each month to the SpokenWeb Podcast feed. Stay tuned for monthly episodes of ‘ShortCuts’ on alternate fortnights (that’s every second week) following the monthly spokenweb podcast episode.
