Navigating Noise means getting off the beaten track in order

to find, or rather, to create something new. This publication

is the result of such unconventional navigations, which follow

the track of noise on its path across art, science, and the

humanities. The point of departure is the artwork Navigating

Noise by Kerstin Ergenzinger. This ephemeral, somewhat

out-worldly sound installation provides the framework for a

collection of academic and artistic contributions that address

the need for alternative means of orientation to deal with noise

and to understand and (re)establish our unstable position within

a highly technologized, mediated, and globalized reality.

These navigations cover a broad terrain of research: from

the starry skies to the deep oceans, from the ice cores of

Greenland to sonic navigation in the animal kingdom, from

spatial acoustics in World War I to noise music. Through a

multidisciplinary approach, Navigating Noise paves the way for

unexpected connections between research domains located

at the border of knowing and not knowing. This endeavour

tries to dig through and below existing semantic and epistemic

systems. The contributors scrutinize the binary dichotomies

of noise/information, noise/meaning, and noise/silence in order

to reconfigure the relational framework that is constituted by

these dichotomies. Released from this, noise no longer serves

as the unwanted, semantic-free, and inefficient antithesis

that should be discarded, but rather embodies a dynamic,

unpredictable, yet constitutive force with which we can soar

towards more agile forms of sonic sense production. Noise

is the dynamic condition of the possibility for any form of

meaning. It is through the navigation of noise that we are –

figuratively speaking – able to ‘know’.
