Based on a conference held in 2000 at Concordia University in Montreal and published in advance of a related exhibition to be held in 2005 at the Walter Phillips Gallery, this volume presents an anthology of 19 wide-ranging texts that explore the meaning of sound in modern culture, discussing such topics as the impact of music on Van Gogh's work, the production of unconventional museum audioguides by Sophie Calle and other artists, the popularity in Egypt of recorded Islamic sermons, the rhythmic structures underlying black "Gansta" films, and the significance of polyphonics in the music of John Cage. Fifteen sound works by such artists as Komar and Melamid, Shirin Neshat, Ann Hamilton, Susan Hiller and Kim Sooja are featured on the accompanying audio CD.
