Madison McCartha’s “Freakophone World” Reviewed by Olivia Cronk and Philip Sorenson

"[R]emember with discomfort and admiration how a certain kind of grade-school kid can shit-talk; the shit-talk makes itself felt under and over the dominant (i.e. authority’s/ bourgeois civility’s) sound. But audible. Quite audible. The shit-talk hangs around like some funny but threatening chunk that can bop between stalactite and stalagmite. If dominant sound too is a kind of tunnel, a worm, then there’s room to make it wormed through, or it gets sucked into a freakophonic tunnel" -Olivia Cronk & Philip Sorenson
