Terraforma Journal — issue #3 explores the generative possibilities of the synthetic process through a multifaceted research line that connects sound, music, and the adjacent methods of sound generation in audio electronics to fields such as artificial intelligence, ecology, language, logic, and everything in between. In chemistry, physics, electronics, philosophy, linguistics, music, sound, art, and literature, “synthesis” is the combination of components or elements to form a connected whole. The Issue explores the subject through the words and images of Amnesia Scanner, Deep Fake, Chris Korda, Hanne Lippard and many more.
Titled “SUB”, this second issue stretches the possibilities of the prefix out of the purely lexical landscape to assume unexpected connotations through in-depth features, interviews, special portfolios, essays, and more. SUB connotes a semantic condition of underneathness—something that’s submerged, subconscious, beneath the surface, yet to unveil. The issue features Suzanne Ciani, Black Med, RP Boo, Drexciya, Merzbow, Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg, Arpanet, Ocean Space and many others to explore the subject.

The issue number 1 focuses on the expanded notion of the festival—intended as a collective, multilateral, interconnected manifestation of dynamicity. The theme unfolds through a multiplicity of layers to acquire new and unexpected definitions. Terre Thaemlitz, Fabio Sargentini, Shiraz Arts Festival, Nyege Nyege Festival, Beuys 2021, 2050+, Flora Yin Won, Alessandro Bava, Alice Bucknell, and Angela Rui —among many others— explore this angle and translate their vision into the printed matter.
