Description :
Drawing on the work of Brandon LaBelle, Jean-Luc Nancy, Mladen Dolar and Charles Sanders Pearce, this paper develops the concept of ‘the arc of sound’ as part of a socio-material approach to semiosis able to recognise the ways in which sound connects and differentiates contingently across heterogeneous spaces and materials. It shows how sound participates in the production of the railway corridor in Mexico as a complex, animate and deeply contoured historically and geographically specific experience of landscape. Finally, it argues for an approach to landscape as mediation that pays equal attention to ontology and epistemology.
