p.ix   "One cannot subject sound to a persistent observation; rather one can only listen and then, maybe, listen again. Music is apprehended in chunks of time. Partly because sound is dynamic, Western intellectual traditions show a markeds preference for vision as the figure of knowledge. We articulate more effectively the fixed image than the dynamic sound."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
Keywords:   Perception
p.xii   "...noise can be any difference between an input signal; or it can be a background level of sonic energy in a room or in a machine; or it can be any unwanted, annoying or unexpected sound; or it can be the constant vibration of the air at a given point in space; or it can refer to any sound whatsoever."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
Keywords:   Noise
p.15   "Though it is often the case that signal overwhelms noise, it is noise that binds the signal, that serves as a medium, a baseline, a plane of relief against which signal stands out."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
Keywords:   Noise
p.24   "The reproduction of sound is not a matter of physics but of affect and percept."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
