Damon Krukowski Ways of Hearing

Ways of Hearing by Damon Krukowski examines the switch from analog to digital audio and how that changes our perceptions of time, space, money, power, and love. Modeled after John Berger's influential book on visual culture, Ways of Seeing, this book explores critical listening in the digital age. Originally a six-part podcast on the network Radiotopia, this book expands on the concepts laid out and provides text and design to add a new dimension of context. Moving from analog to digital can result in the loss of the experience of perceiving time in our media. Music, by and large, has become an intangible media, with the switch from physical objects to streaming services, curated for us by algorithms. Each chapter explores our changing perceptions and lays out the question: Do we want a world enriched by the messiness of noise, or one that strives toward the purity of signal only?
