“When you have two notes from two different performances Auto-Tuned, it sounds like a car horn. And then you add harmonies, and it starts to sound like baby seals honking." - Tom Lord-Alge on Auto-Tune”
Greg Milner, Perfecting Sound Forever: An Aural History of Recorded Music

“This is... an attempt to find some of the important fault lines in the narrative of "recorded history"--the points where people with access to the technology decided that *this* was how recordings should sound, and *this* is what it means to make a record. Ultimately, this is the story of what it means to make a recording of music--a *representation* of music--and declare it to be music itself.”
Greg Milner, Perfecting Sound Forever: An Aural History of Recorded Music

“Asia and the Pacific, where the adoption rate has been almost viral, from nearly nobody in 2006 to 17 percent of the world’s installed GPS precision agriculture systems in 2015,”
