Reverb & Nostalgia; abstract; Slight Rewrite


Through the 1930s and 1940s, popular recording occasionally, though increasingly, made use of mechanically fabricated echo and reverb to present a kind of sonic pictorialism. With the coming of rock ‘n’ roll in the 1950s the effects were used in such a way as to allow distorted, non-pictorial sound spatialities.

During the last decennium the musical past has become accessible to an unprecedented degree. In contemporary Indie subgenres like Hautology and Hypnagogic Pop a disruption of the notion of time takes place through the juxtaposition of past and future-oriented signifiers, wherein reverb seems to be an important factor.
