The examples under discussion range from by-now canonical soundworks... to 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

Listening to Noise and Silence will be of interest to a great many people following breakthrough trends within art and philosophy. - Art Monthly
Salome Voegelin has written an excellent book about sound art, escaping cliché and easy categorizations. She establishes a proper aesthetics and philosophy of sound, with a compelling phenomenological account of noise and silence. - --Neural
In Voegelin's evocative image, noise holds the listener hostage to his or her own listening... Listening to Noise and Silence contains many moments that sound artists and others will find insightful. - Avant Music News
There cannot be a concluding remark to encompass Listening to Noise and Silence. You might not even completely 'understand' it if you refuse to 'feel' it and 'know' it or if you aim at making ends meet evenly. It will question you, it will confuse you, it will exhilarate you. It will prompt you to reinvent it over and over: in listening, in writing. - --Journal of Sonic Studies
Salomé Voegelin is Professor of Sound at the London College of Communication, UAL. An artist and writer, she is also the author of Sonic Possible Worlds: Hearing the Continuum of Sound (Bloomsbury, 2014) and The Political Possibility of Sound: Fragments of Listening (Bloomsbury, 2018).

Book Description Continuum Publishing Corporation, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This is a fresh, bold study of the emerging field of Sound Art, informed by the ideas of Adorno, Merleau Ponty and others. "Listening to Noise and Silence" engages with the emerging practice of sound art and the concurrent development of a discourse and theory of sound. In this original and challenging work, Salome Voegelin immerses the reader in concepts of listening to sound artwork and the everyday acoustic environment, establishing an aesthetics and philosophy of sound and promoting the notion of a sonic sensibility. A multitude of sound works are discussed, by lesser known contemporary artists and composers (for example Curgenven, Gasson and Federer), historical figures in the field (Artaud, Feldman and Cage), and that of contemporary canonic artists such as Janet Cardiff, Bill Fontana, Bernard Parmegiani, and Merzbow. Informed by the ideas of Adorno, Merleau-Ponty and others, the book aims to come to a critique of sound art from its soundings rather than in relation to abstracted themes and pre-existing categories. "Listening to Noise and Silence" broadens the discussion surrounding sound art and opens up the field for others to follow. Seller Inventory # AAV9781441162076
