*Ràdio Web MACBA most listened podcasts - September 2016*
*1- PROBES series. Curated by Chris Cutler
PROBES <http://rwm.macba.cat/en/probes_tag> takes Marshall McLuhan’s
conceptual contrapositions as a starting point to analyse and expose the
search for a new sonic language made urgent after the collapse of tonality
in the twentieth century. The series looks at the many probes and
experiments that were launched in the last century in search of new musical
resources, and a new aesthetic; for ways to make music adequate to a world
transformed by disorientating technologies.

Horse", which is part of the MACBA Collection and moves on to expanded
