This could perhaps be the best summary of acousmatic composition yet:

My reflection on life altogether lacks meaning. I take it some evil spirit
has put a pair of spectacles on my nose, one glass of which magnifies to
an enormous degree, while the other reduces to the same degree [...]
(Soren Kierkegaard, 'Either/Or')

Uncanny, no?
