Eidsheim shows how—rather than being fixed, knowable, and constant—sound, music, and listening are dynamic and contextually dependent. She uses twenty-first-century operas by Juliana Snapper, Meredith Monk, Christopher Cerrone, and Alba Triana as case studies to challenge common assumptions about sound—such as air being the default medium through which it travels—and to demonstrate the importance a performances location and reception play in its contingency. By theorizing the voice as an object of knowledge and rejecting the notion of an a priori definition of sound, Eidsheim releases the voice from a constraining set of fixed concepts and meanings.

In Eidsheims theory, music consists of aural, tactile, spatial, physical, material, and vibrational sensations. This expanded definition of music as manifestation through material and personal relations suggests that we are all connected to each other in and through sound. Sensing Sound will appeal to readers interested in sound studies, new musicology, contemporary opera, and performance studies.
