Intervention

Musicology of Electroacoustic Music [MEM]  >  Aesthetics  >  Digital Aesthetics  ]

Intervention refers to creative processes (often with an explicit agenda of political or cultural commentary) that appropriate sonic materials through digital sampling or use technology in some fashion to draw attention to or subvert more conventional means of music distribution and dissemination. It can be closely related to terms such as Culture-Jamming or Plunderphonics. Implicit in the term is an emphasis on using digital technologies as part of an on-going postmodern discourse, rather than in the creation of autonmous and self-contained (modernist) works of art.
