Cracked media, Kelly writes, slides throughout disciplines, via tune, sound, and noise. Cracked media encompasses every little thing from Cage's silences and indeterminacies, to Paik's frequently funny tape works, to the chilly and fresh sounds of electronic glitch within the paintings of Tone and Oval. Kelly bargains an in depth old account of those practices, arguing that they are often learn as precursors to modern new media.
