JOHN LILLY, DOLPHIN VOICES, AND THE TAPE MEDIUM

e2

Upcoming JOHN DURHAM PETERS event with the Media History Research Centre.

John Lilly, who made dolphins famous as cosmic minds in the water, was obsessed with their bioacoustic practices. Sound technologies, especially tape, were the conditio sine qua non of Lilly’s cetacean research. He used tape to decrypt dolphin communications. The taped infrastructure of his quest for alternate worlds makes Lilly’s work of vital interest for media history, our understanding of sound, the tape medium, and in the stakes of the quest for otherness.
