Abstract

Abstract:

This article presents a theoretical approach derived from a research project focused at a historical reconstruction of the record production in Medellín's discographic industry during the 1960s. Drawing from Diana Taylor's concept of archive and repertoire, the author coins a new concept, the "inapprehensible archive," which might be useful to analyze cultural practices of listening and of aesthetic enjoyment built around activities of collecting artifacts of massive cultural production. By defining a new concept, the article proposes a theoretical model that aims to contribute to study other similar cases, as well as to make explicit some principles that would guide the development of a line of research that explores in depth the historical evolution of the city's sound archive.
