Sound and culture: acoustic cartographies and soundscape

“If the scientific status of the image derives from its intimate connection with technique, that of sound is primarily defined as a return to the sensitive condition of experience. It is therefore to the primary assumption of sound as an information stimulus that we need to return to give it epistemological value, first as a source of perceptive impulses that reveal the surrounding environment, and then as a system of signs that are as subject to conventions as the words themselves”.
