The Acoustic City Book Released

A publication as part of my UCL/Leverhulme Residency is now out:

The Acoustic City consists of a series of cutting-edge essays on sound and the city accompanied by a specially commissioned CD. The book comprises five thematic sections: urban soundscapes with an emphasis on the distinctiveness of the urban acoustic realm; acoustic flânerie and the recording of sonic environments; sound cultures arising from specific associations between music, place, and sound; acoustic ecologies including relationships between architecture, sound, and urban design; and the politics of noise extending to different instances of anxiety or conflict over sound. This innovative essay collection will be of interest to a wide range of disciplines including architecture, cultural studies, geography, musicology, and urban sociology.
