The Art of Noise

“Excessive loudness alone is sufficient to overpower the soul, to suspend its action, and to fill it with terror.”

— Edmund Burke
(A Philosophical Inquiry into the Origin of Our Ideas
of the Sublime and Beautiful, 1756)


“Noiseways New York is a virtual tour of various scenic and not-so scenic locations in the New York City area that includes pictures and sound recordings from each location. While of course you can’t really experience these places through speakers and a computer screen, you’ll be surprised by what you find.”
