QUADERNS D'ÀUDIO

Quaderns d'àudio (Audio Notebooks) is a collection of publications of texts relating to RWM programming. The objective of these publications is to complement the lines of work developed by the radio through the critical edition of hard-to-find works that are important for understanding and delving into sound art in the fields of both music and contemporary art.
The texts are presented in downloadable, printable PDF format. The text layout allows different forms of assemblage: from basic stapling to Japanese Binding, so that the end result can be similar to a conventional publication.
