    About as engaging and informative as a review on Pulse Demon written by a 17 year old RYM user who just discovered the work of Gilles Deleuze and Karl Marx Both tinged in the same boring pseudo academia pretenses.

    really helpful book, covers all sorts of western transgressive musics, mostly focusing on the popular forms noise, japanoise, industrial, techno, prog, punk, rock and roll, sound art , and their theoretical precursors This book has a lot of faults Unfortunately, free improv is only mildly covered, and classical music hardly at all covered Both of these Heggarty looks down upon as high art, even though I m not so sure it s that clear cut of a distinction I think this is just his personal really helpful book, covers all sorts of western transgressive musics, mostly focusing on the popular forms noise, japanoise, industrial, techno, prog, punk, rock and roll, sound art , and their theoretical precursors This book has a lot of faults Unfortunately, free ...

    Ok, I can t read this book because I totally disagree with the author s viewpoint that noise is bad The first ten pages of this book which, admittedly, is all the farther I read discuss nothing but how noise is chaos, and it s negative, and how all noise is dangerous All noise is not dangerousyes, it can be potentially harmfulbut the sound of water in the shower is not going to damage my hearing In fact, I think that most people who fall asleep to white noise machines might also beg t Ok, I can t read this book because I totally disagree with the author s viewpoint that noise is bad The first ten pages of this book which, admittedly, is all the farther I read discuss nothing but how noise is chaos, and it s negative, and how all noise is dangerous All noise is not dangerousyes, it can be potentially harmfulbut the sound of water in the shower is not going to damage my hearing In fact, I think that most people who fall asleep to white noise machines might also b...

    nothing like a grand heap of academic bullshit to dull an otherwise exciting subject this is almost as boring as that one guy who comes into work and gives me the jung ian perspective on Melville and the social ramifications of drinking coffee with a hard on.

    Suffers from the dreaded I HAVE A LOT OF COOL RECORDS disease, as well as the REFERENCE THEORY AND PHILOSOPHY WITHOUT DOING MUCH ELSE disease There s some good there, but Microbionics, while not doing the exact same thing, is far, far better.

    Well done work on the phenomenology of noise which utilizes and subverts trends in both academic writing and music criticism, most noticably the sort of A B C linear progression of influences and diffusions so well loved by writers of both aforementioned fields Hegarty pays some lip service to chronological progressions, utilizi...

    Interesting book Interesting insights and statements on the relation between noise and music Some passages were rather difficult for me but in the end the point he was making always became clear A whole chapter on Merzbow might seem obsolote or might come across as idolatry, but then again, as a case study and illustration of what noise can be about this was also very interesting and got me into checking someMerzbow than I actually did Having opened up for Merzbow once I was kind of bi Interesting book Interesting insights and statements on the relation between noise and music Some passages were rather difficult for me but in the end the point he was making always became clear A whole chapter on Merzbow might seem obsolote or might come across as idolatry, but then again, as a case study and illustrat...
