The Audio Paper format announced in Seismograf

The Sound Studies Lab posted some recent work about Audio Papers that was published in Seismograf.

A short overview might be

The purpose of the audio paper is to extend the written academic text: to present discussions and explorations of a certain argument or problem in sound.

I’m interested in this as I have had posters and papers accepted about my sonification work. Whilst this gets the work published, it is a conundrum that audio work is essentially published in hard copy.

The audio paper solves this issue and provides the flexible format. There are some questions that I have about it and I really need to sit down and listen to the examples. The format does provide some possibilities that should be explored.

Echoing the post, it would be interesting to hear a meeting calling for Audio Papers. The best way of discovering the possibilities is to perhaps try it out.
