systems aesthetics & sound art

Twenty-five or so years ago I read Jack Burnham’s 1968 essay on systems aesthetics and the visual arts. Recently I ran across it and on rereading it was struck by how applicable the concept of systems aesthetics is to much current sound art. For Percorsi Musicali I set out some thoughts on the subject, with a focus on the netlabels Treetrunk and Vuzh.
