About the Author

Joanna Demers writes on aesthetics, technology, and intellectual property in post-1945 music. She is Associate Professor of Musicology at the University of Southern California.


"A well-written, detailed, and though-provoking reflection on the nature of a wide variety of contemporary electronic experimental works/ genres, and the theories of perception and listening that connect them."-Richard Chartier, sound artist "Lucid and surprising, Listening Through the Noise deftly traverses the eclectic world of experimental electronic music. Demers engages central problems in the aesthetics of electronic sound: To refer or not to refer? To mean or be? To situate or dislocate? It will change the way you listen."-Brian Kane, Yale University "Creates a desire to re-examine a wide variety of music, both old and new, with fresh set of ideas and an expanded concept of their forms and foundations. Argumentation and analytic debates get pushed far awar in favor of doing what musical aesthetics arguably does best: creating informed and appreciative listeners."--Philosophy in Review "As a level-headed introduction to this difficult topic, this book is hard to beat." --3 Quarks Daily
