We scholars of fakeness admit that we sometimes expect to be taught similar lessons each time we turn our attentions toward a new critical subject. We learn repeatedly, for instance, how much there is to note in a note’s absence, or that an altered tone can atone for the lack of a tone. But we have not yet done much to ask how our sense of scale performs when enacted on a larger scale: what does magnitude add to silence? Through the FCC’s National Radio Quiet Zone, we begin to ask this question so that we might better misunderstand its answer.
