It’s not exactly an Orca, Attack! production, but it kind of is. David Rodriguez and I just published “’This machine will not communicate’: The Decentralization of Authority in Radiohead’s Music and Digital Media” in the new media studies journal Convergence. It’s our first time publishing an academic work together, and it applies our expertise in music, literature, and information science to an analysis of Radiohead’s work. Currently the article is available freely on the Convergence website.
