This essay is a contribution to an emergent investigation into the usefulness of “mood” as an analytic category for communication and cultural studies. In it I offer a number of descriptive moodscapes that demonstrate the way that mood can direct us to a material world of orientation, attunement, and atmosphere. I also suggest that cultural studies, as a writerly form, can also engage generatively with mood as a productive and political project.

Keywords: Attunement; Heidegger; Mood; Sensorial Materialism; Stimmung
