“[N]oise not some linear accumulation of signals (which would still subordinate the former to the latter). Rather, noise is the set of sonic forces that are capable of entering into differential relations with one another in such a way that they surpass the threshold of audibility and become signal. Noise and signal, then, are not differences in degree or number but differences in kind, distinct domains. Noise is no longer merely one sound among many, a sound that we do not want to hear or cannot hear. Rather, it is the ceaseless and intense flow of sonic matter that is actualised in, but not exhausted by, speech, music and significant sound of all sorts (22).”
—“Sound Art and the Sonic Unconscious” (Christopher Cox)
