Sonar: Echo Network

Volume 1: Bending the Baseline

Sonar Echo Network Vol 1 (click to read or download as a pdf), released June 2000. Sonar is a literary journal/chapbook featuring 12 writers/artists/collaborators. It was initiated, edited and published by Chris Doorley, Molly Lewis, Josh Lifrak and Geoff Kuffner with Melissa Gorman at the design helm. Sonar was produced like a rock-n-roll record and steeped in Ransom Corp. aesthetics. It explores simultaneity, shifting perspectives, interpenetrating storylines, and has an itch for genre-bending, fusion and creating. It includes musical scores, comic book illustrations, cut-ups, cross-outs, poetry, illustrated installation concepts, sci-fi dystopia, hidden tracks, fake advertisements and flipbooks. Carried by Tower Records and City Lights Book Store, 2000 copies were printed, sold and freely given.
