Product Details

Praise

“With poignant examples, philosophical acumen and palpable care, Sonic Agency probes the depth of sound in social life for what it can humanly (and nonhumanly) do, helping readers understand the politics of the always audible but rarely heard.”
– Deborah Kapchan, Associate Professor of Performance Studies, New York University

“LaBelle is correct to stress that the public sphere is usually imagined and understood in relation to visibility, and far less often in relation to sound. Sound offers a way into thinking about who and what is unseen, and appears, on the surface, to offer a more radical, if harder to grasp conception of what insurrectionary politics might look, or rather sound, like.”
– Nina Power, The Wire

“Sonic Agency presents a passionate attempt at thinking through questions of the emergence of publics and counterpublics — of coming together in a world that isolates us.”
– Nora Sternfeld, Professor of Practice, Aalto University
