Acoustic Cyberspace, by Erik Davis [via Heckler & Coch]: "Acoustic space is capable of simultaneity, superimposition, and nonlinearity, but above all, it resonates. [...] Where visual space emphasizes linearity, acoustic space emphasizes simultaneity - the possibility that many events that occur in the same zone of space-time. In such a scheme, a subject - a person, maybe - organizes space by synthesizing a variety of different events, points, images, and sources of information into a kind of organic totality".
