Arguing that our ears are far too narrowly attuned to our own species, the book explores four different types of voices: the cybernetic, the gendered, the creaturely, and the ecological.

Though not universally 'private'—14 this terrain can never be fully transparent,
and it is often a site of social intimacy” (Shryock 2004: 1). So, sound and music
cultures have an “off-stage” area− not literally, but a terrain where “the public” is
made, even staged, before it is more widely heard (see Hytönen et al. 2012). We
are here encountering a challenge to unravel the terrains of sonic intimacy using
the methodology of sensory memory walks. As said previously, in the 1950s

Smalley also focused upon the challenges of moving a work from the studio to
the concert space, from the loss of sonic intimacy to the need to recognise the
relationships between the spatial characteristics of sound as heard in stereo and
the spatialisation methods employed to enhance that sound in concert. All in all a
very practical article. Austin's interview with Field mentions Ambisonics.
Ambisonics is achieving something of a comeback since its invention in the early
1970s as its ...

Still, it continued in some areas and survived as a sonic metaphor in the singing
of lullabies for the baby Jesus, which often became a poetic substitute for the
practical act. The tactile intimacy with the child Jesus is thus replaced with poetic
(and sonic) intimacy. Movements 18 and 19 of the oratorio celebrate this intimacy
and also refer to the function of music within this act of human and divine
approximation. It is fitting, then, that the first time in the oratorio humans plan to
approach the ...

... a sense of sonic intimacy that is attained by the unhurried nature of the
arrangements and the way the voice and guitars have been miked and recorded,
with a slight echo that serves to emphasize the clean silence surrounding the
words and notes. this is further highlighted by songs which reference the affect of
voice. The first song begins with the evocation of a 'voice in the silence', while the
second opens with 'the memory of a sad voice'; another speaks of 'an
unconscious voice ...

In Madonna's output, there is always a sense that her recordings constitute
creative inquiries into representation and desire. In the verses of 'Music',
Madonna's voice is profiled with relatively little studio treatment and confined to a
pitch range of a perfect fifth, while her voice is positioned to the front of the mix. A
minimal use of effects at this point creates a sonic intimacy that could be
described as a constructed naturalness, a quality which is felt as erotic.
Conversely, in the choruses, ...

Although the successful blockbusters—Star Wars, for example, or Richard
Donner's 1978 Superman, or Stephen Spielberg's 1981 Raiders of the Lost Ark—
tend to privilege music-supported 'surround sound' action sequences over
everything else, even these films at least occasionally follow their sonically
spectacular moments with scene changes that begin with sonic intimacy. More
striking is the use of ear-catching sound affect in the period's war movies. Michael
Cimino's 1978 The ...

overpowering sense of sonic intimacy that is orgasmic in its effect. Throughout
the song 'Bedtime Stories' waves of energy are controlled through Madonna's
voice as she surfs the groove. Moving towards a conclusion, the instruments
gradually drop out of the mix as the groove grinds to a halt leaving the voice
naked and vulnerable. Madonna trembles, with a vocal close-up: I'll never
explain again. At this moment in ...

repeatedly announces itself as Clapton deliberately applies excessive pressure
tothe guitar strings as his fingers move towards their positiononthe fret board(the
amusical squeak of 'string talk').2The guitar dominates themix, envelopingthe
