Memory Studies published a paper »A microphone in a chandelier: How a secret recording sparks mnemonic imagination and affect« by Martin Pogačar. The article examines a recording of an old Slovenian choral song made in 1941 during the Fascist occupation. Pogačar analyses the recording as a temporal object that drives affective mnemohistories; modulates individual and collective experiences, expectations and interpretations; and induces mnemonic imagination. He furthermore discusses the song’s historical background, its technical history, and compares its affective force in live performances and in mediated experiences in YouTube. The investigation of the song as a temporal object that engenders variegated, multilayered engagements with the past contributes to the debates on the study of music and memory, and the history of media technologies in the context of post-socialist memory.
