Focus and Scope

Soundposts traces the co-evolution of music and sound, youth culture and the resistance to the status quo by exploring how we listen now. We publish critical and creative pieces that engage any aspect of contemporary music and sound, including genre, technology, audience, performance, individual artists, creative communities and digital aesthetics. Soundposts’ primary audience is the community of student writers at the University of Toronto with an interest in music, sound art and contemporary culture. We also hope to reach out to like-minded students at other universities as well as emerging musicians and sound artists who want to share ideas and participate in a creative-critical dialogue on the new directions music and sound will take in the 21st century.
