Audio Typo 13

Today I’m taking a step back from all the previous experiments I did.

Although I had a good time doing them, I never really asked myself what I was doing and why. I took audio and typography for granted and that’s what I won’t be doing from now on.

So, instead of fiddling around with TTS programs, scratching typography on vinyl records and changing the programming code of a font, I will be asking myself two basic questions: what is audio and what is typography?

By asking these questions I will be looking for the boundaries between audio and non-audio, typography and non-typography. What does it mean to “be audio“? Is silence also audio, or only when it’s recorded? Is there even such a thing as silence and how can we know? The same goes for typography: when does one decide he’s seeing typography or a building for example? Or: when looking at the letter M experiments of Wolfgang Weingart: where does typography stop and become a big black bold surface of black?

These are some questions that interest me. You can follow the process on a new tumblr blog I made: The Sound of Typography. I’ve got no clue where this will lead me, but I’m anxious to walk this path, find some new territory. Let’s do this!
