A Graphic Thought on Listening Through The Noise.

The Press release from OUP re Joanna Demers book - Listening Through The Noise: The Aesthetics of Experimental Electronic Music produced a number of reactions from our readers.
Ann Alex posted her reasoned arguments against Ms Demers' theorem in an earlier post whilst here, Bill Shaw took a graphic look.
As for me - I just wish the council worker using the pneumatic drill would go about his labours in the key of C, Bb or F when I'm practising.

Lance and Bill, I have a terrible confession to make, I love the sound of fax machines when they are dialling the number. I told my colleagues this (when I worked in an office in a previous life) and they thought I was crackers. But I'm not about to start singing like a fax, and that's a fact.

Why not sing like a fax rather than be just another (f)email singer?
