For van Leeuwan the semiotics of sound in Western culture should describe sound as a semiotic resource offering its users a rich array of semiotic choices, not as a artali telling what to do, or how to use sound correctly. For instance, twentieth century music developed some apparently unbreakable paradigms: Other forms of colored noise occur when there is a wide noise spectrum, but within some narrow band of frequencies–as in the case of wind whistling through trees or over wires.
