  • Abstract: This article challenges perceptions of authorship within the practice of field recording, discussing sonic arts responses to political subject matter and examining the power dynamic among recordist/composer, subject and listener. It considers compositions drawing on recordings of protests as a medium to represent political content without recourse to language.
