Reviews

Operating at high theoretical altitude, in The Order of Sounds, François Bonnet sets himself a Herculean task: nothing less than the retheorisation of sound as such.

--Drew Daniels, THE WIRE

To the theoretical propensities imprinted on the domain of sound by a rational order, François J. Bonnet opposes a veritable thinking of disorder, a "sonorous archipelago" rather than a "theory of sound." This unprecedented and salutary enterprise outlines a new path for a future "acoulogy."

--Pierre-Yves Macé, Filigrane

Bonnet's writing, dense, full of unexpected turns and remarks, is intelligent and meticulous.

--Daniel Contarelli, CRITIQUE D'ART
