About La_Meme_Young

Greetings. My name is Max Alper, I am a professor of sound studies and music technology in Puerto Rico, as well as a PhD candidate in sonic arts pedagogy. I have been making "weaponized critical memery" on Instagram under the handle @La_Meme_Young for over four years now, originally as a way a fun way to supplement my own critical writing and sonic arts teaching materials, though now it seems to have become its own monster. I make sound collages and improvised music under the moniker Peretsky. I write about sounds occasionally over at Hii Magazine as well.

By subscribing to this page, you will be helping me pay my PhD tuition fees by joining my community funded virtual classroom. This classroom will consist of weekly group critique seminars of each other’s work over Zoom, weekly call-in office hours on Discord, video lectures on a variety of topics related to the sonic arts, and conversations with some awesome guest artists. All content will be posted to this page, as well as on the private IG archive @LMYpatrons. The class Discord is equally as important as the content itself, it is an autonomous community of subscribers in 6 continents, which keeps the conversation surrounding sonic arts, sound studies, and experimental music buzzing basically 24/7.
