This issue examines some of the practices in which music and hacking meet. At first closely related to the development of American computer science research laboratories, hacking has since spread across various fields of human activity not necessarily related to information and communications technology. Hence, music provides both a theoretical and empirical space within which one can question hacking’s attributes, and delineate their aesthetic and organolologic effects, but also their integration into musicians’ discourses, or the way these musicans create musical communities and belong to them.
The interview with hacking pioneer Nicolas Collins is available in English on the site Books & Ideas : https://booksandideas.net/Hacking-Through-Contemporary-Electronic-Music.html
