“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

“Perhaps the major tenet of Pinpoint is that GPS barely exists—not just because the signal itself is so weak, but also because GPS is a remarkably diffuse concept. At root, GPS is just a radio signal, maintained and perfected by a vast infrastructure that is ultimately linked to the United States Department of Defense.”
Greg Milner, Pinpoint: How GPS Is Changing Technology, Culture, and Our Minds
