The tekhnē journal is an online periodical which provides background information and reflection on thematics linked to sound, technology, and creative usership. Each of the six partners involved with the tekhnē collaborative project will take the lead in one of the issues, highlighting facets of the emancipatory potential of technology in music and sound art, such as diversity and access to the stages, ableism, education and participation, DIY cultures, and transparency and open access to the internet.

The first issue of the tekhnē online journal outlines the field of DIY with its practices, cultures and politics. A central observation of the tekhne project is that technological changes often go hand in hand with social changes, such as the emergence of electronic instruments that became musical instruments and changed not only who made the music, but also what we consider music to be. This first issue is compiled by Q-O2.
