As I walked along a country road bordered by trees, I could point to each one of the trees by the road, even if they were not spaced at regular intervals. I knew whether the trees were straight and tall, carrying their branches as a body carries its head, or gathered into thickets and partly covering the ground around them.

From this cursory overview of the traditional scientific approach to sound and hearing, it should be clear that it operates to a significant extent within a model of a linear chain of energy or signal transfers, much as the early models of communication processes posited a sourcechannel-receiver chain (Leiss, 1991). Our critique of the tradition is not to deny the value of its knowledge or techniques (in fact, we will Acoustic Tradition and the Communicational Approach 11 constantly invoke them).

Signal Processing Similarly, the entire field of electroacoustics, the result of the application of 20th-century technology to sound, constitutes a subdiscipline of electrical engineering, that is, audio engineering. It is concerned with the energy transfer from acoustic to electrical forms, a process called transduction, as well as the subsequent processing and/or storage of the resultant audio signal. The related process of radio transmission codes an audio signal into an electromagnetic carrier wave that is transmitted to a distant receiver instantaneously-another energy and signal transfer process.
