"Music is the cup that holds the wine of silence. Sound is that cup, but empty. Noise is that cup, but broken.”

Country noises

"Country noises" by Saül Steinberg - 1978

Saül Steinberg is a Romanian graphist, cartoonist and illustrator born in 1914 who studied philosophy in Bucharest, then architecture in Italy. In the late 30S, because of the anti-Semitic laws, he escaped and reached New York where he lived. 

His most famous work was the 1976's New Yorker cover, a map delineating not real space but the mental geography of Manhattanites.
