Editorial Reviews


"The examples under discussion range from by-now canonical recent works by a clutch of lesser known artists...Voegelin's critical style is so singular that she avoids cliche in the treatment of all these artists, prising them out of a conversation about music and into a challenging treatise on the art of listening." - The Wire

"The book's arguments are complex and developed with rigour, making a perceptive contribution to an emerging debate. In its favour, the work consistently forces the listener off-track to think critically about just what it is that makes listening so powerful and so elusive."
-Will Montgomery, The Wire, August 2010

If you like such things, good read. I have passed it on to several others involved in sound design who liked it as well.
