hi Andy + all yawwwl
as an invited guest in sum earlier rounds (0) + as an interested
party/partcipant still in/on [empyre] for this Round 2 that you propose i
will take a swing @ bringing this thread baxxx around to a discussion of
Glitch / Noise...

1rst, i would suggest that in glitchscenes we take (movable) positions
along a continuum. these may incl, the previously invoked available options
/ positionalities of:

gl1tch to gl0tch (3)
Aesthetics of Glitch to Conceptual Glitch Art (4)
Glitch Design to Error Art (5)
the wild or feral to the caged or domesticated glitches (6)
Noise Art && Noise Musics (7)
Dirty New Media Art (8); digitalPunk (9); The Queer Art of Failure (10);
Cracked Media (11); Glitch / Artware (12); Noise, Water, Meat (13);
Unstable Media (14); etc...

2ndly, i would say that in terms of "failure", in the context of the
Art-Now-Known-As-Glitch-Art, is seldom the actual self-destructive or
nihilistic goal of complete irrecoverable crash (15) or irreversible
collapse (16) but rather is a means of expressive potential in our
aestheticonceptechniques (17)

&& 3, wwwitch (18) is a majik #, im proposing the term
aestheticonceptechnique to address the interrelatednesses of these
aspects/domains in our glitchscenes (19) + glitchystories (20) in specific
&& in New Media Arts + Media Art Histories (21) in general

17. 'Aestheticonceptechniques' is a term i have developed and deploy as an
extension of Kodwo Eshun's term 'conceptechnics' as he uses it in his 1998
book More Brilliant Than The Sun. Eshun developed the term to signal
interdependencies and deep interrelations of idea and form. Similarly, i
use 'aestheticonceptechniques' to articulate my perspective as a
theory-practitioner, engaging the interdependent technosocial relations of
aesthetics, concepts and techniques.
