The audio paper: from situated practices to affective sound encounters

Sanne Krogh Groth, Kristine Samson

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articlepeer-review


The audio paper is an academic publication format that seeks to bring together academic argumentation and analysis with media, technology and situated, sensory experience. This article is a presentation of our conception of what an audio paper can be. As it follows, this conception is depended on and developed within a specific context, both when it comes to how the idea was conceived, how the audio paper takes form in practice and how it gradually is being accepted as an academic publication format. Meanwhile, we bring forth some of the publications we have experienced so far, we also argue, that the audio paper is not only a final and fixed format, but is always to be perceived situated in various modes of production.
