In this essay from New Media, Old Media [2006], (originally published in 
Grey Room) Levin proposes an alternative history that takes into account 
underexamined developments in synthetic sound reproduction. While 
contemporary accounts of new media make it sound like threats to “real” 
or indexical sound only come with digitization, Levin explores 
well-documented events in the history of sythentic or “hand-written” 
sound by analog means.



A living - breathing - thriving networked neighbourhood -
proud of free culture - claiming it with others ;)
