    A fantastic book chronicling the history of sonified electromagnetism in the arts and sciences Kahn coins the term Aelectrosonics the sounds created by the natural electromagnetic activity on earth and in space All because we included the earth and space in our communication circuits earth as electrical ground, the atmosphere as transmission medium for radio From accidental listening hearing the Aurora Borealis or whistlers on the telegraph and telephone lines of the 19th century to sonifying brainwaves Alvin Lucier to earth hums and moon bounces, to Alexander Graham Bell s photophone and Robert Barry s energy art Sometimes Kahn s documentation might be too thoroughly too many quotes of people categorizing weird noises but this book is wonderful, full of inspiration and I ll definitely have to go over it again.

    This was an extremely tedious read with very little payoff It was unclear what Kahn s objective was He starts out with a lot of physical description of the nature of the various natural signals and the aesthetics and outright beauty of nature most people don t experience, but devolves into an overall study of obscure experimental art, much of which is completely dissociated from anything natural at all If there is a theme, it is the cursory discussion of the weird than anything aesthetic Even his description of the phenomenon of natural radio is cursory, focused on the personalities of the people than either the aesthetics or the physics implied by his title.
