"But what kind of “space” does our expanded encounter with electricity and the electromagnetic spectrum lead us into? Though the spectrum includes the wavelengths of visible light, and X-rays, ultrasound, and radio astronomy can all be used to illuminate new dimensions of the universe, the essence of electromagnetism is invisible. In one of his more suggestive intuitions, Marshall McLuhan argued that electronic technologies were installing an “acoustic space” in the place of an earlier “visual space” — the linear, logical and sequential conception of the world that had dominated Western consciousness for many centuries. McLuhan believed that electronic media eroded this crisp and objective grid of facts, dissolving it into a psychic, social and perceptual environment that resembles the kind of space we hear: multi-dimensional, resonant, invisibly tactile, “a total and simultaneous field of relations.” Though McLuhan used “acoustic space” as an analogy for a psycho-social process that did not necessarily tickle the bones of the inner ear, his oceanic vision of acoustics does foreground the central role that music — and its electromagnification — would play in mapping and constructing pleasure and perception in the first fully technological century."
Actually I was wrong, it’s not “Simfoniya Donbassa” it is Arseny Avraamov’s - “Symphony Of Factory Sirens” and it even happen twice. Once in Baku in 1922 and second time in Moscow. Dziga Vertov got same ideas for his movie, sorry for misleading. Here some helpful links: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kq_7w9RHvpQ, http://monoskop.org/Symphony_of_Sirens
