p.2   "Whatever is represented in speech (or to some lesser extent in writing) inevitably has to bow to the logic of time and of sequence in time. ... Human engagement with the world through speech or writing cannot escape that logic; it orders and shapes that human engagement with the world. Whatever is represented in image has to bow, equally, to the logic of space, and to the simultaneity of elements in spatial arrangements. ... 'The world narrated' is a different world to 'the world depicted and displayed'."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard

Keywords:   Soundscape
p.13   "Extending one theory too far, into a domain for which it was never meant, does no one a service..."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
p.46   "The affective affordances of sound are entirely different to those of sight or those of touch; sound is more immediately tangibly felt in the body than is sight, but certainly differently felt."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
