Many thanks to Marcus Boon and his guest Douglas Khan and Nina Eidsheim for highlighting the discussion around Douglas' book EARTH AND SOUND EARTH SIGNAL.  The ensuing discussion around sound, electromagnetism, vibration and so much more provided another thread into our discussion New Sonic Paths: Sound Studies Expanded.   Both Nina and Marcus spend the 2011 to 2012 academic year at Cornell as fellows at the Society for the Humanities during the year devoted to "Sound Cultures." http://www.arts.cornell.edu/sochum/ft_11_12.html It has been nostalgic to bring them together virtually this past week.  Thanks them both of them and Douglas who so generously allowed all of us to peak into his fascinating research and book.

This month on -empyre we have invited four sound specialists to discuss emerging topics involving sound. As we thank Marcus Book we will be Introducing Jim Drobnick for Week 3 momentarily.
