Ruins, Memorials, and Documents
The consequences of modernity and postmodernity have included the destruction of habitats and communities, as well as threats to national and personal security. Considerations of the environment, millennial anxieties, and new forms of contemporary tragedy have brought new means of articulating and recording loss in music. The chapter considers in particular modes of documentation and preservation as responses to loss, especially in forms of acoustic ecology and field recording; as well as forms of musical ruins. It also considers works of public and private commemoration, in musical responses to both 9/11 and AIDS.
