Sound at the Edge of Perception

Palgrave, publishers of Seán Street's latest book, Sound Poetics: Interaction and Personal  have commissioned a new book with the working title, Sound at the Edge of Perception: the Aural Minutiae of Sand and Other Worldly Murmuring. As its name implies, in this work Seán will explore tones, sounds and vibrations which may be almost unheard in the modern bustle of life, but which may nevertheless have the capacity to contribute to and affect our perception of the world and our own selves. Topics include phonemes, single letters and other building blocks of speech, as well as the physically unheard 'silent' sounds within the imagination, minimalist music, and the subtle sonic frequencies of the natural world. The book should appear in late 2018/early 2019.
