From the Cranky Professor

I was talking to a friend tonight....she's interested in music and dissonance - and sound. She has a long-standing interest in science fiction and cyborgs.

So I am remembering a short story that couldn't have been published (given my life and my high school library) after 1975.

The mute-but-not-deaf protagonist works for a service that sweeps for left-behind sound. In this world sound keeps reverberating - and one client is a failed or retired opera (?) singer. And he can here the sounds that he's removing.

Any help?



Update: a LJ friend claims it's "The Sound-Sweep," J.G. Ballard, 1960.
