"Mom’s Voice" and Other Voices:Civil-Military Relations as a Media Ritual | Meyers | International Journal of Communication

This article looks at how sonic media rituals are created, performed, and negotiated to understand the ways in which citizens are persuaded to risk their lives in the name of the imagined national community. It does so through an analysis of the representation of civil–military relations on the veteran Israeli radio program Kola Shel Ima (“Mom’s Voice”). As shown, the performance of the Kola Shel Ima ritual is enabled because of off-air preparations, on-air conversations, and common values shared by ritual participants. Yet, at times various components of the ritual are challenged on-air. On a larger scale, the debate over Kola Shel Ima positions it as a ritual of flashing out or, conversely, a ritual of covering up.

Karl Ove Knausgård on his book about Norwegian painter Edvard Munch. Studio360 May 2019
Knausgård commends Munch for continually ridding himself of his familiar habits as an artist. He tells Kurt Andersen that it’s a method that both painters and novelists benefit from.

“If you want to get rid of all the automatic ways in, then you have to do something from scratch so to speak and build something that you haven't done before,” Knausgård says. “It's like you do it for the first time. And I think that's that's the best place to be in writing…. And I think Munch somehow searched for those places in his painting throughout his life.”

How Restaurants Got So Loud - The Atlantic
"Restaurants are so loud because architects don’t design them to be quiet. Much of this shift in design boils down to changing conceptions of what makes a space seem upscale or luxurious, as well as evolving trends in food service. Right now, high-end surfaces connote luxury, such as the slate and wood of restaurants including The Osprey in Brooklyn or Atomix in Manhattan."

The goal is to recover the meaning of sound, to undertake a historicized mode of listening that tunes our modern ears to the pitch of the past. Simply clicking a "play" button will not do.

Can Psychology Teach Us How To Stick To New Year's Resolutions? : NPR

10 Powerful Audio Recording Apps - Android.AppStorm
November 25th 2013 "Unless you’re a radio producer, the days of needing dedicated voice recorders are long behind us. Mobile phones and tablets have built-in microphones that are perfectly acceptable for private use in listening back on interviews, meetings, lectures, or random musings. And they even tend to do alright nowadays with music at concerts. But to get good-quality audio, you still need to do some tweaking. And there are apps for that. I’ve searched high and low for the best advanced audio recording apps, all of which include powerful features that help you get the sound just right. If you only want to record quick voice memos, these will all be overkill, but for the professionals who need clear, crisp audio on a budget, they might be just the ticket."

Noise Pollution Maps Crowdsourced from Smartphone Data | MIT Technology Review
Excerpts: Their idea is to crowdsource the data from smartphones that record sound levels as their owners wander the streets. Smartphones can provide accurate measurements of ambient sound as well as a location and time stamp to show exactly where the measurement was taken. The difficulty is in ensuring that the measurements are useful recordings of ambient noise and not other sounds that might distort the readings. They say that the crowdsourced data is remarkably accurate and allows them to reconstruct the ground truth data, even when up to 40 percent of the original data points are missing.

ACA: CALM Has Implementation Problems :: Communications Technology
One of the problems with standards: "In a letter from American Cable Association (ACA) lawyers to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the ACA explained that it will be challenging to implement the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act (CALM) because the technical standard for establishing and maintaining audio loudness for digital TV - ATSC A/85 - was written as a voluntary engineering standard and not a legal document."
