What are the political implications and ethical concerns of sampling sounds of war? This is a critical question raised by The End of Silence, a 2013 record from the British composer Matthew Herbert based entirely on a six-second field recording of the Libyan civil war. Musicologist Luis Velasco-Pufleau examines this question and argues that sound and music can enable critical examinations of the rationale of war.
