FACTOIDS://Music in the air

Finally, two reports that link telecoms to music - contemporary music, that is.

Keith McMahon reported on a new book by Rob Walters. Stunning material, linking wireless technology (spread spectrum) to composer George Antheil and actress Hedy Lamarr. Keith concludes it is movie material. It could pass for April's Fools Day material as well.

The Guardian had a review of a London Sinfonietta concert, with Salvatore Sciarrino's Archeologia del Telefono. The piece contains the ghastly Nokia ringtone.
