Palavras-chave: som, remistura, sob a linguagem, narrativas sonoras, narrativas aurais/orais, ficheiros de som, código de computador, arqueologia narrativa, audição, escuta


Este ensaio descreve a (re)combinação e/ou (re)concetualização de artefactos sonoros de duas obras pioneiras de literatura eletrónica, que deixaram de estar acessíveis, com o objetivo de criar uma nova narrativa sonora para cada uma delas. A techne proposta amplia as oportunidades para concetualizar e criar artefactos literários caracterizados pela audibilidade do texto, o som como texto e sentido, e uma maior conscientização da(s) voz(es) do autor e/ou do(s) falantes no texto. Esta abordagem pode contribuir para questionar o passado de invisibilidade da voz na literatura e promover práticas mais gratificantes do que os simulacros, as descrições ou as transcrições. Vox Media. Som na e/ou como literatura.
