Neuroaesthetics and Experimental Audio-Visual Performances

Chris Brown

This paper first develops a contemporary (re)interpretation of Deleuze’s essay “Postscript on the Societies of Control” before using it as a lens through which to explore the psychosomatic affects of experimental audio-visual performances.
