Noisy Treasures - Supersonix conference paper

In June I gave a paper at the Supersonix conference in the Science Museum, London entitled "Noisy Treasures: how incidental noise can bridge the gap between recording and listener."

This is a spin off from my PhD thesis and concerns all kinds of interesting ways in which noise can be considered as a positive and useful part of the listening experience. It relies a lot on work by Eric Clarke and Simon Waters, and originally Gregory Bateson and the ecological approach.
