Sample text

18) Each sound is clearly associated with a different delivery vehicle passing by and making stops. Differences in their sounds provided useful information, and patterns of association were quickly built, which stayed in the memory nearly a half century later. It is not difficult to imagine why. Each sound was associated, first of all, with one of the essentials of life in those days: ice, coal, clothing, food. A person waiting for a delivery would be listening for one of these sounds, comparing it to past experience and differentiating it from those with which it might be confused.

We examine the implications of technology on patterns of acoustic communication, and the new role into which the individual and the community are cast, in the second half of this book. From this cursory overview of the traditional scientific approach to sound and hearing, it should be clear that it operates to a significant extent within a model of a linear chain of energy or signal transfers, much as the early models of communication processes posited a sourcechannel-receiver chain (Leiss, 1991).

In fact, it is through context that we understand how a sound functions. In the following sections, we examine how, within the traditional acoustic environment, the inseparability of every sound from its context makes it a valuable source of usable information about the current state of the environment. Moreover, in terms of a community, sounds not only reflect its complete social and geographical context, but also reinforce community identity and cohesion. Sometimes they are a frequent, almost subconscious reminder of context, and at other times they provide the uniqueness of occasion that reflects a community's individuality.
