When this becomes a reality, though, we will have to invent new words for them. 'Sound Art' has been consumed. S. p. Paul DeMarinis On Sonic Spaces//1997 Much of my recent work examines the archaeology of sound recording in an effort to explore the hidden dimensions of technology and culture as they intertwine within and among our perceptions of sound, memory and communication. In his ‘Ninth Bridgewater Treatise Fragment’ of 1838, Charles Babbage, commonly cited as an ancestor of digital media, portrays a world filled with nondissipative sound waves.
If there is any shred of doubt lingering that there are no visual media, that this phrase needs to be retired from our vocabulary or completely redefined, let me clinch the case with a brief remark on unmediated vision itself, the ‘purely visual’ realm of eyesight and seeing the world around us. What if it turned out that vision itself was not a visual medium? What if, as Gombrich noted long ago, the ‘innocent eye’, the pure, untutored optical organ, was in fact blind? (Art and Illusion, 1961) Of course, this is not an idle thought but actually a firmly established doctrine in the analysis of the visual process as such.
It has switched to another section of the square. In stereo sound two speakers carry sound components at equal amplitude that meet at mid-point. Now if in a ninespeaker arrangement each speaker has a different amplitude and six out of the nine speakers are always on, sound is pulled multi-directionally. Its mid-points continually change across the board in all directions as the arrows in Jones’ explanatory drawing indicate. It is as if magnetic poles could switch their loci continually. The change in amplitude (six degrees) pulls the sound according to the logic circuit.
