Bridges many gaps
25 August 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Great transdisciplinary text. Brings together so many areas of sound study that overlap but never get a proper contextual grouping. Surveillance, sound mapping, social space, history, cultural byproduct, biology -- essay's that really bind together acoustic ecology, sound art, and urban studies. The Sound Studies Reader organizes a canon of texts to create a bedrock for studying sound, but Acoustic City applies contemporary practices as of today, and even offer helpful criticism on issues such as the efficacy of sound mapping as an aesthetic gesture. The cd is great too, as it combines field recordings, sound sculptures, compositions and everything in between to exhibit all the approaches that are possible within the infancy of sound art.
