Gustavo Matamoros discusses ideas about sound and its potential content-base interpretation as language in music through listening examples.  Based on the notions of monophony, polyphony and homophony as musical strategies for organizing sound through history he attempts to establish a comparison in intent between two siblings … musicians and sound artists.
