Author and sound artist Joe Banks argues in his book "Rorschach Audio - Art
& Illusion for Sound" that "the earliest form of sound recording technology
was not a machine but was written language". The "Rorschach Audio"
presentation explores relationships between recording techniques and
mechanisms of aural and visual perception, demonstrating fascinating and
sometimes bizarre psychoacoustic and optical illusions. The lecture
proposes a critique of allegedly supernatural Electronic Voice Phenomena
(ghost-voice) research in context of contemporary sonic art, tracing the
illusions involved as far back as the artist generally recognised as the
most important figure in the history of Western art, and emphasising the
role that relatively little-known wartime intelligence work with sound had
on what is arguably the most important work of visual arts theory ever
