"This paper examines some of the processes and practices that make sonic spatiality distinctive and sets out theoretical and conceptual resources that might better enable us to understand these processes. It draws on the notion of political agency in order to animate the processual making of sonic space as socio-material relationality. Developing an approach to sonic mediation compatible with a critical phenomenology of the auditory, the paper sets out four interrelated sets of sonic effects central to the making of sonic spaces. It shows how these address a politics of difference which engages affective and representational political processes."
p.244   "Perhaps Carpenter and McLuhan’s most radical insight was their assertion that, where sound is concerned, space is made and shaped by the qualities of sound itself." (Carpenter & McLuhan 1970)

p.244   "This phenomenology of sound as event produced through material processes was taken up within geography by the humanistic geographer Douglas Pocock ... However, it is clear from these and subsequent accounts that the qualities and characteristics of sound and sonic experience question conventional and cartographic conceptions of space (see Rodaway, 1994). In the context of both debates concerning relational space and Rancière’s politics of the distribution of the sensible, the idea of sonic space made by the thing itself is now recognizable as a profound conceptual move."

Refers to his interpretation of Carpenter's and McLuhan's conception of sound as sound as event.

p.244   "the lesson of Carpenter and McLuhan’s formulation that sonic space is made by the thing itself suggests that a clear separation between objects and subjects, carrier and carried, and mediation conceived as a message carrier added on to the relationships between objects may also need rethinking."   Added by: sirfragalot

"For Labelle, sonic mediation concerns semiosis. Meanings created, communicated and translated through sound are associative, ‘triggering associative forms of discourse and knowledge’ implicating both the physical and phenomenological behaviour of sound (2010: xix)."

"Starting from Carpenter and McLuhan’s premise, we need to seek the ‘thinginess’ of sound as co-produced by the act or processes of making, the materials which carry and transmit, and the means of receiving, sensing and making sense. Sound is made within the contingent interplay of each of these realms simultaneously."
