When did you come up with "anthrophony"? This article, supposedly written in 
2008, mentions "anthropophony", and implies that it's a word you coined:

There are many words in several languages that have double or even quadruple 
meanings. And they have different origins.  One just needs to sort out the 
context. The context in this case is pretty clear. Not all human-generated 
sound is technologically a source.

Unfortunately, a quick google search shows that anthropophony is a term that 
has already been associated with the study of the human vocal sounds.  To use 
it in the context of other man-made sounds might cause confusion.
Homophony, which seems another obvious choice, is also gone (a musical term).

Maybe back to the drawing board (or anthropogenic noise)?  Maybe technophony is 
the more appropriated term?
