Previews, Interviews and Reviews of Sonic Writing

Posted by Thor Magnusson on April 27, 2020

My book, Sonic Writing, was published a year ago. I’ve been surprisingly pleased with its reception and to learn that people whose work I’m continually inspired by are praising the book, using it in their teaching and recommending it as required reading for lab members. The book would not exist without these people and I’m glad that ideas are feeding back the other direction too. Here below I present a mix of interviews, presentations and reviews of the book I’ve participated in or been made aware of.


The first review of the book was by Gregory Taylor on the Cycling74 page: Book Review: Sonic Writing


The prolific Darwin Grosse interviewed me for the Art+Music+Technology Podcast


I discussed the book with Eamonn Bell from the New Books Network.
