Site of Sound: Of Architecture and the Ear: Vol 2
Brandon LaBelle & Claudia Martinho
With the publication of its first volume in 1999, Site of Sound established itself as the critical voice for current trends in sound art and audio theory. In this much-anticipated second volume, the anthology addresses a broad range of issues pertaining to sound and architecture from acoustical technologies and urban planning to public art. The emergence of sound art and sonic design educational programs reflect the growing interest in auditory structures and the experiences of listening within both artistic and environmental/architectural-specific contexts. Site of Sound: Of Architecture and the Ear Volume 2 brings together new writing and research, along with visual works, interviews and artist projects by leading experimental composers, sound artists and architects working in the sonic-spatial disciplines. Complementing this are theoretical, fictional and diaristic texts by contemporary authors, cartographers and ecologists, along with an audio CD of related material.
