"Auditory space has no favored focus. It's a sphere without fixed boundaries, space made by the thing itself, not space containing the thing."
"Auditory space has no boundaries in the visual sense [...] There is nothing in auditory space corresponding to the vanishing point in visual perspective [...] auditory space lacks the precision of visual orientation."
"[Auditory space] can be filled with sound that has no "object," such as the eye demands."
"pure visual space is flat, about 180 degrees, while pure acoustic space is spherical. Perspective translated into visual terms the depths of acoustic space."

How does this relate to auditory localization and blocking of auditory modality?

Perhaps Carpenter and McLuhan’s most radical insight was their assertion that, where sound is concerned, space is made and shaped by the qualities of sound itself." (Carpenter & McLuhan, 1970)
"For Labelle, sonic mediation concerns semiosis. Meanings created, communicated and translated through sound are associative, ‘triggering associative forms of discourse and knowledge’ implicating both the physical and phenomenological behaviour of sound (2010: xix)."
Labelle B (2010) Acoustic Territories: Sound Culture and Everyday Life . London: Continuum.
"Starting from Carpenter and McLuhan’s premise, we need to seek the ‘thinginess’ of sound as co-produced by the act or processes of making, the materials which carry and transmit, and the means of receiving, sensing and making sense. Sound is made within the contingent interplay of each of these realms simultaneously."
the lesson of Carpenter and McLuhan’s formulation that sonic space is made by the thing itself suggests that a clear separation between objects and subjects, carrier and carried, and mediation conceived as a message carrier added on to the relationships between objects may also need rethinking."
