"This article discusses the change in premise that digital produced sound brings about and how digital technologies more generally have changed our relationship to the musical artifact, not simply in degree but in kind. It demonstrates how our musical conceptions are thoroughly challenged by the digital production of sound and, by questioning the ontological basis for digital sound, turns our understanding of the core term substance upside down."
p.64   Talking of digital 'sound', the "digital material", comparing it to natural sound that is formed by the laws of physics: "for what is this otherworldly form in which the [digital] material occurs, that makes it possible to readily evade the laws of physics . . .?"   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
Keywords:   Digital Physics
p.64   "The digital bit is not in the world in the true sense [they] are organized in arrays that consist solely of the simplest possible difference: something or nothing."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
Keywords:   Ambiguity Digital
p.65   Using Heidegger, he describes the uncovering of nature made possible by technology, a process driven by humans: the uncovering is ordered and, in its ordering, "is co-shaping our concept and understanding of what is uncovered and ordered [there is a ] formatting that the exercise of any technique applies to what is uncovered and made available."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
Keywords:   Heidegger Physics
p.66   "The assembly is manifested in enframing form, but is it the real as standing reserve the enframing uncovers? Hardly, as the possible "un-covering" seems petrified in the metaphorical tables that define and delimit actions in the digital domain."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
