'Mechanical Sound' traces efforts to control unwanted sound - the noise of industry, city traffic, gramophones and radios, and aircraft - from the late 19th to the late 20th century. Karin Bijsterveld argues that a paradox of control has developed, in which only some forms of noise are regulated by experts and governments.
