is was an unmediated mailing list oriented toward
discussion of the styles of digital and post-digital music promulgated by the proliferation and
widespread adoption of digital signal processing (dsp) tools.
is was not a "genre" mailing list, since this
proliferation has occurred largely without regard for stylistic boundary. instead, .microsound presents presented itself as a forum for the discussion and
exploration of a more general "digital aesthetic" manifesting across a wide variety of styles and
disciplines -- from academic computer music to post-industrial noise to experimental ambient and
to the microsound list.

- anything that's not aesthetic discussion
subscribe to the microsound-announce
list and post it there.
a by no means exhaustive list of related artists and labels appropriate for discussion can be found
although certain aspects of production inevitably enter discussion, .microsound
is was not a music-maker or fan-boy list; if you're after
detailed deliberation of the merits of this or that dsp card or vst plugin, we recommend lists such
as csound, MAX/MSP, pro-audio, freesound, music-dsp, structured audio, lo-fi, and gameaudiopro or a
plethora of other listservs that capably handle these topics.
is was an unmediated list, but that doesn't mean
anything goes. posts should concern concerned topics of
historical, conceptual, or experiential relevance to digital and post-digital music. mean-spirited
pissing contests will not be were not tolerated.
refuses refused to become a sounding board for
ebay auctions, playlists, and the periodic expurgations of listmembers' record collections. extended
for-sale lists are were not allowed, although brief posts
containing urls where such lists can could be viewed are were acceptable.
abuse abused these few guidelines will be were hounded into submission. failing that, they will be were removed from the list.
thank you for your interest in .microsound.
