"Responding to the increasingly frequent contention that 'sound' itself is a category of contemporary art practice, this rewarding collection of voices illuminates the sometimes distinct, but more often overlapping zones of the auditory, the musical, and the sonic, from Luigi Russolo's Art of Noises to our heterogeneous present. Fascinating and useful." - Marina Rosenfeld , artist and composer, co-chair, Music/Sound, Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Bard College
